Many Waters Cannot Drown Love


Neither can Floods Drown it**


Together for 40 Years. Where he went so did She


The Dance of Love



Boyhood


Together in Life and into Eternity. As cancer ravaged his body every day he asked for his Beloved. She was first in his mind in the morning and last thought at Night before sleep. Only until Daddy was reassured that the Love of his life would be cared for did he take his final Earthly breath. Then not able to bear her suffering from cancer he begged Jesus to be allowed to escort her home.

On August 1998 Jesus said Yes. Descending into the hospital room Edward said Mable come with me. Taking his hand they ascended towards Home. Passing through the Gates of Heaven at once 25 again. Young, Healthy and in Love.

Daddy


Thanks for reading. No Daddy issue here. Our Dad was everything to us.

I’m committed to changing the negative narrative and stereotypes of Black Men and Black Fathers.

Don’t drink the Koolaid and Don’t believe the hype about Black men pushed by the media. STOP Watching Love and hip hop plus those Stupid Wives TV Shows! Not real life! All Lies! Fake!



For all the Men Who step in when a child’s Father has died. Salute!

Color him Father. Color him Love by the Winstons.

Stephen at the Queen’s Special Olympics many years ago


My brother Stephen who has Autism at the Queen’s Special Olympics many years ago.

It used to be held at St. John’s University in Jamaica, Queens.


No more. Those opportunities are long gone. Stephen Loved earning his Medals. He was proud of his medals and would wear them for several days in a row.


What happened you might ask? Budget cuts are what happened. Loss of funding means loss of opportunities for those who have Autism or other developmental disabilities. However through your donations you have the Power to change this picture for Stephen and others like him.


Those of you who have been following my Blog Posts over several years know about my Autism Activism and Dedication to the cause. I have spent months calling politicians, Elected officials, Community Leaders, etc….


Along with representatives from Queens Centers for Progress which is Stephen Group Home we have been up to Albany to meet with lawmakers. I’ve protested, Marched and demonstrated in the freezing cold to get funding returned to those who need it the most.


My brother Stephen has and always is my #1 priority. I put him before all my Needs, Dreams, wants, desires and wishes. That will never change. My Life is totally devoted to advocating not just for Stephen but for every disabled person in my Community.


Please give.
