In Loving Memory of
MICHAEL"SLEEPY" JOHN


MICHEAL "SLEEPY" JOHN DEPARTED LIFE AT A VERY EARLY AGE
AND DOING SOMETHING HE HAD ALWAYS DREAMED OF DOING....

MY COUSIN WAS ONE OF THE MOST SPECIAL AND LOVING PEOPLE THAT ANYONE WOULD HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE TO KNOW....
HE WAS ALWAYS WILLING TO HELP OTHERS AND WAS THE LIFE OF OUR FAMILY GATHERINGS BUT, THE DAY HE LOST HIS LIFE HE TOOK ALOT OF HEARTS ALONG WITH HIM, INCLUDING MINE....
HE STRONGLY BELIEVED IN FAMILY AND HIS GOAL WAS TO ALWAYS KEEP THE FAMILY AS CLOSE TOGETHER AS HE POSSIBLY CAN....
I MISS AND LOVE HIM VERY MUCH, BUT I KNOW THAT HE IS IN A BETTER PLACE WITH THE HEAVENLY FATHER LOOKING DOWN ON ALL OF US....

OH MICHAEL, I FINALLY DID IT BUT I GUESS YOU ALREADY KNEW BEFORE ME THAT I WAS GETTING OUT....
I HAVE FINALLY GRADUATED AND YOU WERE NOT THERE TO CELEBRATE IN THIS JOYOUS MOMENT WITH ME....
I MISSED YOU MORE YESTERDAY THAN EVER BEFORE BECAUSE,
YOU NEVER MADE ME GIVE UP EVEN WHEN I FELT LIKE I COULDN'T DO IT ANYMORE, AND FOR THAT I SHALL ALWAYS BE GREATFUL....
IT'S BECAUSE OF YOUR TALKS I HAD THE COURAGE TO STAY AND FIGHT IT OUT....

THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR LITTLE PEEP TALKS CUZ THEY WENT A LONG WAY AND GAVE ME THE COURAGE TO SEE THAT GIVING UP WOULD HAVE BEEN THE WORST THING TO DO....
BASICALLY, YOU WERE MY MENTOR AND INSPIRATION DURING THE REST OF MY STAY AT BRONX COMMUNITY....
TRUTH BE TOLD. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I LEARNED FROM YOU WAS THAT THERE ARE NO QUITTERS IN THIS FAMILY....
AND I WAS NOT ABOUT TO BECOME THE FIRST....

INDIRECTLY, YOU WERE TELLING ME THAT WE ALWAYS REACH FOR THE SKY AND THE SKY IS THE LIMIT SO THAT'S WHAT I TURNED AROUND AND DID....
I REACHED FOR THE LIMIT AND I GOT THE SKY AND YOU ALONG WITH MOMMIE,DADDY, GRANDADDY AND MY BROTHER ARE ALL THERE.....

MY DEAREST COUSIN....TAKE YOUR REST NOW AND DON'T FORGET TO KEEP WATCH OVER THE REST OF US....IF I HAD TO DO IT OVER AGAIN, I WOULD NEVER CHANGE THE FACT THAT WE WERE COUSINS, BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE VERY HARD TO FIND....REST IN PEACE OUR BELOVED COUSIN AND REMEMBER TO ALWAYS KEEP WATCH OVER THE REST OF THE FAMILY....MUCH LOVE AND KISSES GOING YOUR WAY.....FROM YOUR BELOVED COUSINS

MAUNDY & KAREN PHILOGENE
