I never got the chance to meet them, but i would have loved to get to know them.
2: This is my mother when she was a kid. I loved my mother my entire life, and it wasn't until i had my kids that i could see how much she went through Raising us kids. I thank God everyday that i had a mother like her.
3: This is my Dad, I don't have a picture of him when he was a kid, but he is really young here. When my dad was young, he was a boxer.

I loved him, and it hit me hard when he died, but just like my mom, God puled me through it.
