    I met you 24 years ago at EMJ, we became Co Workers, Friends, most of all family to me and husband and our girls The Docks. EMJ will never be the same without you. You made coming to work fun never a dull moment. I do know you loved us Docks and I hope you knew how much we loved you! I promise to stay in touch with Rita. You touched our lives in so many ways.

    Rest in Peace, fly high with the angels!

    With Love, Jennie & Fred Docks & Family

  6. candle 1Uncle, I’ll cherish every memory spent with you forever. I know you mentioned how proud of me you were, but I hope you know how much I admired and loved you – always have, always will. You exemplified the true definition of a husband, father, provider, grandfather, loved one; setting the bar very high. I will make every effort to fulfill your request to shower the family with QUALITY love. I will miss your amazing presence and will do my part to further your legacy throughout my lifetime. L❤️‍🩹ve You More!

  7. candle 1My dear cousin Cornell, I love you so much. My regret is not seeing as much when we got older. I wanted to see you again. Yet I’m so grateful for our childhood. We grew up so close, always at Aunt Bessie’s or you all at my mother’s house. Our solid foundation as children and young adults sustains me. So many beautiful memories. Cousin, I always looked up to you. Your consistency, serious yet loving. I appreciate you dancing with me even though you knew I couldn’t keep the rhythm but you made me look good just because I was dancing with you. Our last dance was at my birthday party and I remember you said, “we better sit down now cause you’re getting old.” We laughed. I’ll never forget that night. Thank God your sister Barbara captured the memory.
    You were an important vital part of this family. Your presence will be sorely missed but I’ll smile every time I think of you sitting at mother’s kitchen table refusing to eat that runny oatmeal. I’ll smile when I think of the many nights I stayed at aunt Bessie’s with you, Barbara and the twins. I’d try to get you all to stay up with me but all fell asleep so I hung out with aunt Bessie at the dining room table drinking coffee. You are loved and will be missed. I pray to see you one day when this life is over and we’ll laugh again about that oatmeal.
    I so sad, my heart is so broken but I promise you, I’ll never forget you, I’ll love you always ❤️ your cousin Marilyn
