    Tracy we are trying to process this. This was sudden and it hurts so much! I’ll forever cherish the times that God allowed us to share. As siblings we don’t always agree, however, nothing can ever stop the love we shared. What matters most are the matters of the heart ♥️! I love you then, now & always!!!

    Words can’t express how much I will miss you. I still hear your voice, your laughter, our jokes. I can hear you say don’t cry because we all to go some day. It keeps a smile on my face knowing you are saying just that. But friend I will never be able to pick up the phone and share my feelings, my heart, my secrets anymore. But I do thank God for all the years we had. I love you Tracy. You will forever be in my heart ❤️

    To the family and friends of Mr. Cross always cherish the fond memories of time spent together and although you may grieve the Bible can be a source of comfort. At (Revelation 21:3,4) it speaks of a time when there will be no more sickness or death, also at (Acts 24:15) it speaks of a resurrection that we all can look forward to. May the peace and love of the God of all comfort be with you all. Comfort can be found in our Creator through prayer and through his word the Bible and in our Savior Jesus Christ.

    This is a hard pill to swallow, you were always stopping by to see about us. You are in a better place now and I know that you knew the Lord, we have spoke on the one and only true God! I will miss you my brother-in-law1

    I am still in disbelief about your passing. I am going to miss the talks on the phone and through messenger about things happening in our city. You were so intelligent and full of life in your wisdom. I know Tonya is going to really miss her bestfriend 😢
