Jeanette thanks for starting the family photo album. Its nice to see everyone's beautiful family in real life. God bless all our family's and friends.
You are most welcome, Michael. The idea was inspired by Holly when she shared all those nice photos on the Chit Chat thread. I knew that in a week they would all be gone and headed for the archives never to be seen again. So, I fixed us a permanent place to house them. I'm so elated that you approve.
Come on all members, let us see what your family is like.
Ivonne......Thank you for posting these. It's so great to see Luis, the man we have all prayed so hard for. I also didn't know you had a son, he takes after you. Aren't grandchildren wonderful. Sometimes I think we should have had them first.

Holly.......what a tragic thing to have happen in your family. I'm so stunned by the sorrow you have endured. I hope that this did not happen in the states. Were they in Jamaica or here?

Been busy sewing 3 quilts and they are off to their destination for my grandchildren.
Here is my precious granddaughter Gracie Rose who is 3 weeks now, along with her mom, just as precious, Meghan.
Nance announced the arrival of Grace Rose
Yes, indeedy I do have a picture of her. She is sure loved by her brother, too.
My brother,Maurice.I have no pictures or articles for my grandfather,seperate incident
ELMIRA, N.Y. -- Maurice Davis, 51, was a father, a deacon, a father-to-be, a brother, a husband and, most of all, a friend.
"He was a friend to everybody. Everybody who knew Maurice had a friend immediately," said Davis' wife, Tanisha Logan-Davis.
Logan-Davis says he especially loved children: the six he was raising--and one about to be born -- those he ministered to as a deacon at Our Father's House of Prayer Eternal Church in Elmira and ones in the Hathorn Court neighborhood.
"Any child who went through here, if you were doing something you weren't supposed to, Mr. Maurice was going to stop you and say something to you or just make you smile. So all the children knew him as Mr. Maurice," Logan-Davis said.
Maurice Davis, known around Hathorn Court by the kids and others, was asleep in his bed early Friday morning when bullets came across the court into his bedroom and killed him. His wife says the rest of their family doesn't feel safe anymore.
"They won't go upstairs. They won't sleep in their bedroom. It's not, it's not safe for them," Logan-Davis said.
Elmira Police say people can start making the neighborhood safer by helping them find the person or people responsible for Davis' death.
"We're looking for everybody's cooperation. There's an innocent, man, a gentle, kind caring man who's in bed minding his own business and was viciously killed. And leaves behind his children and wife grieving over it," said Elmira Police Captain Joe Kain.
Logan-Davis says she has forgiven her husband's killer or killers but still wants them to be found.
"I pray anyone who knows anything about this step forward so the family can have some kind of peace in their hearts," Logan-Davis said.
Elmira Police say they are still conducting interviews as they continue investigating the shooting that killed Maurice Davis. They're asking anyone with any information to call their anonymous tip line, (607) 271-HALT.
...they caught the people....Rnondo Ross and Demetrius Molina...
He always tried to get me to go to church,it's just not my thing.
Holly, I'm so glad they caught the ones responsible.
What a horrible thing to had happened Holly, the only thing tht comes to my spirit is this: the Lord wanted him home early because He loves him so much and wanted to spare him of all the orrible things that are going to happen...
Jeanette, I had not seen my grandchildren in Texas for 7 years and had not met my grandaughter Destani until they came for summer vacation. Ny daughters Mitzi's sons I had not seen for about 6 years either...
Wow.......what a wonderful reunion that was for all of you to finally get to meet each other. Hopefully it will never be that long again between visits.
and,most importantly of all,!!!!!

AOLA AND WILLIE
MAURICE JR. AND HENRY 3
Holly......I love Aola's dress. I watch "Say Yes To The Dress" a lot and they don't have one with long lacy sleeves like this anymore. They are all strapless or one shouldered. Guess I'm just old fashioned but this is what I call a wedding dress.
Kaya.......you didn't tell us who this young man is and how was the party?
That is Victor.What party?victor is her brother.He is really sweet.
Thanks, Justice, for identifying Victor for us. She is very blessed to have a brother to look after her. I just assumed there might be a party about to happen or maybe one just came to an end by the bottles of booze on the table behind him. Funny how little things like that never show up in the camera but are always there when the picture appears. LOL.
STEVONTE AND THOMIAH
Holly, are these people friends or relatives? You didn't say how they were related to you.
That is my niece and my nephew.They belong to my brother,maurice,who is not here any more.
