Memories Timeline


  1. Sista, I do miss you so much right now.On Monday you talked 2 me, and told me so much. When you told me you was leaving,I said ok. On Tuesday morning, I did all I knew how to keep you here with us. I prayed, and prayed. I worked with you, I talked to you, and then when you waved at me, your words came back to me, that you was leaving. God spoke to me, and said it is finished.I gave Linda the towel, and walked out your house, to go find the anbulance for you. You will be missed so much. I ask the family to stay in pray, with each other. Doug, I know it hurts, I have been there. my Mother and Father are both gone. So you have your dad, take care of him (Lee). With Love Ms. Collie
