A special “Thank You” to all our Family and Friends that helped lay Dante “Dog” to rest. When I was a child, I acted like a child, but when I became a man; I left behind my childish ways. Love is all this, and hate is all that. I know where I’m at a million miles away. I’m sorry I didn’t get to stay. I never intended to leave this way. So many words I didn’t get to say, I hope you understand one day. I am loved by so many, it just doesn’t seem fair. When I needed someone, why wasn’t anyone there? It was a cold winter this year, my last one on this earth, you see, they came and stole my life from me. I see your tears sad, I never wanted you to be. High School Football Star is everybody’s number one. Lost myself, the way these streets out here, they don’t play. Tell my Momma I’ll be ok. I know people are angry, and I’m mad too. But God must have needed me to watch after you. I admit, there are things I wish weren’t, so, believe me, I would have never left you alone. My sister my ride or die, I wish I could send the answer to your Why. I’m sorry you have to say goodbye. Miah, don’t let your heart get the best of who you can become and never forget where we are from. Grandma, be strong and stand up tall, I never wanted you to get this call, you always believed in me through it all. To my family, “Thank You,” for staying on the same page, I appreciate the communication but I can see the devastation. Dad, I was a good kid when I was little, high school star as a teen, then my heart took over, and I lost my way, you offered your hand, but I pushed you away. Tia Amy, hold on tight to the good memories, take care of Mama and Papa, please. There’s no way to put their mind at ease, I can see them crying, as they sit alone. I wish I could have stayed, but God needed me home. Anthony primo, my “Let’s Go” partner, I did my best with your son, talked about you so he wouldn’t forget his dad. I know his heart is broken, you are sad, don’t let him grow up mad. I’ll be ya’lls guardian angel from now on, it’s all I can do since I have to be gone. I found the writer of my last words, I hope she can express how I feel so everyone knows the deal, this nightmare is so fucken real. Carry me together and bury me in Dallas Cowboy’s blue and remember me forever because I will always be with you. There is a box in Midway, I left a prayer behind, read it out loud, and peace may you all find. There is no rewind, so please don’t let losing me make you blind I’ll forever be one of a KIND.
