    I have always loved you like my own Mother, you always treated me with kindness. I’m so sorry for your family’s loss for such a wonderful, caring, and full of laughter Mom, Grandmother, Aunt , & friend. I love your son Darryl till this day & I have thought of him often I did not know of his passing and it breaks my heart for the both of you. I wish I would have paid more attention to my intuition and came to see you both. You will always be in my heart & Buddy too he was a wonderful man, father & friend.
    Sincerely, Daisy Merlene Bruce (King) & the King Family
