  17. Shannelle (Co-Co) Brown

    She was much more than my godmother, I can’t recall a single moment in my life that she wasn’t there. I could count on her every year calling me on my birthday no matter what was going on…I never told her how much she meant to me, never got to say how much I loved her, never had the chance for that last birthday lunch (despite the numerous times she attempted to get together) but knowing she’s finally at peace brings a calmness over me knowing that she’s with God and all those things I never got to do don’t seem to hold as much weight anymore. Mom, I love you immensely and I promise to continue making you proud. Rest Easy

  18. There’ll always be Memories Take the Name of Jesus with You Always

  24. I would like to send my deepest condolences to Danielle and family for the loss of your Wife, Sister and Mother. One can never truly be prepared for a loss but may your sadness one day be filled with smiles and maybe a little tears of happiness knowing that your loved one has fought a good fight. May her memory urge you to live and do things in ways that she may had to keep her memory alive. Walk in faith not fear that she is in good hands with the lord.
