  10. To my best friend Darryl and his family.I’m so thankful of having the opportunity of meeting your mother and making her smile when she always came to visit in Chicago. She was known for keeping a positive attitude about things and I will always remember her enjoying the time she spent with you Darryl and enjoying her favorite tv programs the cooking channels. Even though I never had the pleasure of enjoying her cooking but I’m sure she had her very own way of making things special. I will miss her visits and her smiling face but am sure she’s in great hands now. I know it’s a little difficult at this point in time but we all must deal with the blessing of life and death at some point. Darryl you and your family are in my prayers and thoughts. God Bless you all! A Friend-Kerry
