My Family & I Thank You

My mother, sister and I truly appreciate all of your love, support and kind words of encouragement during the loss of our beloved Theresa.  She had a beautiful Life Celebration service on Saturday, April 30.  I had the honor of delivering her eulogy.  It was one of the most difficult things I've ever done and my proudest moment.  I am certain that she was smiling.  My niece, her 10-year old daughter showed the same determination and resilience as her mother.   I was so proud of her and my entire family.

A heartfelt thank you to the beautiful Sisterlocks Queens whose presence at T's service helped to fortify and strengthen me:  My consultant and dear friend, Gigi and husband; my first client, Monica who traveled all the way from Oklahoma; Creyole who dashed over from Dallas after learning of T's passing only two hours prior to her service; and my good friend M, who came out of her bat cave to support me (wink).   What awesome friends.
During a very difficult day my friend and client, Monica shared this with me,

"Earlier I was reading your blog and the love that people are pouring out to you.  One person said the “whole community” was lifting you up.  Girl draw on that.  There are people all over the world praying for you.  Hold on to that."

And hold to your words of encouragement, I have...
My mother sends her thank you as well.  She lost her baby and she is suffering.  You will never know how much your support has ministered to our hearts.

Love, BlaqKofi, Momma and Gladys.

Hi BlaqKofi. I am so sorry to read the passing of your sister. You and your family are in my prayers and may you and your family find peace in God's ever loving arms.

I lost my Queen Mother on April 1st of this year. It was one of the most difficult times of my life. My family of 6 is now three; my eldest sister, my brother and me (the youngest). We lost our father in 2002 and my eldest brother in 2006. My two children and my 4 closest girlfriends are the ones responsible for getting me through. They have been my rock and I know that I can call on them at any day, anytime when I just can't seem to get a handle on life.

Love,Peace&Sunflowers to you and your family!

You're a beautiful family. Your mom is gorgeous. It brought tears to my eyes thinking of what she must be going through. Tell her, her baby is safe, in the arms of our Lord.
