Having a moment. Up thinking about the amazing conversations I had with my cousin Lamar throughout the years. He and I were only 2 1/2 weeks a part in age. He has been there my whole life. Always a part of me. Through distance and circumstance, we found a way to remain close. I was closer to him than the people I saw on a regular bases. The transparency we had with one another was life altering… healing. Even from childhood, we shared from our deepest places- our joys, our pains, our hope.
His love for God… his unwavering faith… whew… bold… inspiring. His love for his family- his amazing wife Shaquila, his beautiful daughters Tionna and Hannah, His precious and beautiful Mom, his “awaiting to be born” 1st grandchild, his siblings Debra & James, his Dad, and his extended family… would simply take your breath away.
What a honor it has been to be a part of his life. Even though we lived in different parts of the United States, we always saw each other heart to heart.
My cousin. My best friend. My partner in Heaven & Earth shaking prayer, in gut busting laughter and in cleansing tears. Missing you already Cuz. So thankful for the 50 years and 4 months. So thankful we knew what we meant to each other- Never a question, never a doubt. So thankful that we shared life together.
Who will I have to talk to on any given day- at all hours of the day and night? Especially at midnight? At 3am?
Rest easy Cuz. I tearfully rejoice as you step into your best days with the King of kings.
Our three fold cord will never be broken.
I love you “Infinity x 3”.
