	In memormy of family that has past.......

My cousin was killed late last year in a brutal death...he was
murdered...memories of the night he died still bother me, he died before
he turned 22 years old......

I miss Leon, I love him still and often wonder if he is OK, I know he is
gone to a better place but no one in our family had a chance to say
goodbye He died before his mother, my beautiful Aunt Pat saw him.....

I am constantly thinking of him and my Uncle Raymond & Uncle Thomas, who
died of AIDS, my Grandfather and people who I have worked with....... 

I am a 23 year old single mom/parent of three beautiful children..... I
pray that I live to see my children and other members of my family grow
older and wiser with each passing day.  It's hard to lose someone you love
so much, never to see them again.......even at their passing it was hard
for me to cry.....somehow, someway or another, I felt strangely at peace,
calm and knowledgeable at the funerals.......but, I cry when I think of
the way my cousin died and how some people can be so cruel and uncaring
towards others...... 

Everyday it breaks my heart to turn on the news or listen to the radio, or
read the paper, and hear or see that someone else has lost a friend, a
child, a wife/husband/lover, or a parent.  I know that living this world
is a fact of life......I wish that people didn't have to suffer so much in
the process. 

So to all of you that have lost someone special, I feel your pain...  I
know how you feel.......Just keep telling your thoughts, fears and pain
with the Lord and he will see you through. 

I Love you Uncle Raymond, Leon, Grandpa, Grandma, and some many others
rest in peace.
