    I was so sorry and shocked when I heard about Timmy. When we were young Lola Taylor and I use to always go over to there house and play with Selina and all of them. Selina would have pajama party’s and they’re mama would cook so much food. We used to love going over there even tho’ we were very young we played until our parents told us it’s time to come home. My deepest sympathy goes out to you Selina loosing your Dad in June , Chris last year and now Timmy . But you know god has everything in control and he will keep his hands on you and Jeffery and the rest of your family. It’s been some years since I seen y’all but with god on my side I’m still here. May god bless you.
