Sleet as you know already this is your partner in crime here. Just sitting here thinking just how hard it is to believe your gone. We just talked on the phone the other night and how I wish that night would have never ended knowing now what was in the path of the day to come.... as you already know as kids we were the last thing people wanted to see together because we were the new meaning to double trouble.. CUZ I just want you to know that you are one hell of a person and wish we as adults could be as tight as we were when we were kids well just have one ready for me when i get there and i hope its soon because i already miss you so much you will always be remembered and NEVER FORGOTTEN

Well Skeet it definitely does NOT even feel right writing this knowing I'm not going to receive a response from you.!!! You and I had our times of being super close then times we kinda fell back from each other a little bit.!! But it was never for to long.! I LOVE YOU AN MISS YOU BUNCHES ALREADY.!!
Let me tell you tho I'd do anything for just one more long talk about everything in life. You are the only person I've ever been able to just open up completely about life (My parents sisters and brothers.!) The only one who truly seemed to understand me and act like they actually cared about what i was and have been feeling my whole life. Ugh definitely gonna be a rough one to start being able to deal with on a daily basis.!!!! I love you soooo muchh. I'm sorry we didnt get to talk before this happened.!! R.i.p Skeet Miss You Sooooo Muchh.!!! ♡♡♡♡♡♡

Skeet my heart broke when I heard this. You were taken way too soon Crimsyn and Arianna are in my thought and prayers. They were daddy’s kids every time I saw them They always talked about you with smiles on their faces. Nikki loved you so please play catch with her in heaven. I am so sorry for your families loss I know you were and always will be loved by all, and such amazing memories everyone has.

I am so sorry for your loss. May the words of our loving heavenly Father bring your family comfort and strength during this most difficult time as He promises to bring our loved ones back to life in a perfect world where there will be no more suffering or death (John 5:28-29 & Revelation 21:4).

I can't make it to the funeral home today, but I want to express my deepest sympathies to Lavon's family and friends upon his passing. Lavon's father was my cousin.
