Who was "John-John"?
John was the most caring person you could ever meet. He was loved by all.
John would always greet you with a smile and a kiss on the cheek; that was his way. He always had a joke to tell you to get you laffing at nothing.
Altho he had "many BM's" they all loved him, and all knew where they fit in. To this day these women love him and his children miss him...
I was one who loved and will always miss John; he was just 'tha one", ya know? You could never be mad at him, he was such an angel.
Children loved him; he was so jovial, and always willing to play with them. Thats something in the hood. John used to be the one who would stop in the middle of a mission, and help his grandmother, Miss Bell (96 and still sittin there lookin'!) weed her flowerbed, or take some tools to the back. And he would sit there, and talk with her till she was done...
It all falls down...
Johns spiral into the abyss of depression and hoplessness, climaxed with the death of his loving mother, Elizabeth "Mickey" Davis. John and his mother were close, closerthanthis, and her death suddenly, on New Years Day, 1999, dealt him a devestating blow. He never got over that. Already in the throws of a gorilla crack addiction, John sought solace in the arms of the crack pipe. And it won.
He and his mother were very close, and when she died he felt desolate and alone; his "best girl" was no longer there. Altho he had 2 sisters (Johnetta and Cheryl) and 1 brother(Daniell), who loved him dearly. It just was not enough...
John seemed to just give up after his mother died, and took more and more chances; sunk deeper and deeper. He knew "the steps" he had been thru them many times. But he just chose, out of grief, to forget them.
In late 2000, John was 'run down' by a driver, who to this day remains unidentified. (We feel this was intentional.) He was run down with such force, when he landed on his head it did considerable damage, he lay in a deep coma, his brain exposed. After a while the family decided, reluctantly, to let him go home. Even tho you know its coming, its still devastating when it gets here. I still cannot believe I've lost my favorite cousin.
My Best Friend.
John was cremated, and laid to rest with his loving mother, who he missed so much. The family decided to have his mother exhumed, and the canister containing his ashes laid in her prayer-clasped hands...
He is finally at rest.
~A TRIBUTE FROM JOHN E. DAVIS JR~
"To Those who I Love and Those Who Love ME:"
Release me and let me go;
I have so many things to see and do.

Be thankful for all our beautiful years.
I gave you my Love. You can only guess how much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown, but know that its time I travel alone.

Then let your grief be comforted by trust,
Its only for a little while that we must part, So
keep the memories within your heart,

So if you need me...Call and I will be near.
And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear my love areound you soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone, I'll greet you with a smile and say...

Special angel flying high,
We are sorry that we still cry,
But you see your loved everyday,
And missed in each and every way.
What we would give to have you back here,
What we would give to just hold you near,
No one will ever know the exact pain,
That we feel again and again.
The sun it shines, the sky is blue,
Just like it was the day you flew,
These days seem so hard now your up above,
But please know we send you so much love.
Lv Always Mandy.x.x.x.
From the only one not listed in the tribute I just want to say
I love you JD,"Ah WEST"

BUTTERFLIES FROM HEAVEN
When we lose our loved ones they never die
For I know once heaven takes their souls
The Dear Lord leaves a little of them here
To turn into beautiful butterflies
So they can be near our hearts
Blessed are those who can see the beauty
Of the life which has gone to what is "God's Art"
When we look for the angels
They will send us Jesus' love
I saw a butterfly today, my last prayer I gave away
Heaven is more than souls of our loved ones
When a father, mother, a brother, sister or a child dies
Their hearts live in those who have loved them
Every grain of sand, every sunrise and sunset
All the good things we know and love
They all go to Jesus for Him to protect
As a gift, The Lord, lets us have a glimpse of those we love
For a brief moment in time, for a short while
A butterfly is seen at our window, sent from heaven
Then we know, all will be well with those we love.

This Beautiful Butterfly..
Is a gift to you above..
With it's wings of many colours
Made with love
You fly high..
Just like this beautiful butterfly
You fly past the stars..
And up to the moon
Oh why sweet angel..
Was you gone too soon?
You spread your wings..
Just like this beautiful butterfly
Go fly through the clouds
And up to the sky
With not a care..
You fly free
And if you can..
Fly home to me

Why are you crying? Do you think I am gone?
I haven’t left you, I’m where I belong
Anytime you are lonely, anytime you are sad
Anytime that your heartbreaks, anytime you are mad
All you have to do is close your eyes and I’ll be there with you
You see the world may take my body but that’s all it can do
When Jesus died upon the cross, he took away our sins
He conquered death so we can live in heaven where life begins
Don’t stop the memory of the time we shared
Its god’s way to help you get through
Take time to laugh when life gets hard the way we used to do
A smell? A touch? The morning sun? They will all help you see
I’m still there. I never left. Now smile once more for me
Live each day. Keep looking up. My life was not in vain
I finished the task I was born to do
That’s why I couldn’t remain
Until I see you-I love you forever and always

~ With Love ~
Hear me as I whisper
Though I whisper soft and low
There’s something I must tell you
There’s something you should know
I know that life is fleeting
I know that this is true
I left this world so quickly
With no goodbye to you
I know how much you miss me
Your tears fall ever light
The pillow where you lay your head
Is wet most every night
But trust me when I tell you
I’m happy here with god
To those that do not know the lord
To them this may seem odd
But forever I’ll be smiling
With those I walk among
I’ll be forever happy
And I’ll be forever young
There are no words to tell you
Of the beauty heaven bears
As angels took me by the hand
And I walked heavens stairs
I know my wings came early
For you, this was not planned
But god who is all knowing
Will help you understand
Please know I’m with you always
I live inside your heart
And when we once more meet again
It’s there we’ll never part
For now I’m very busy ‘tho
There’s work still yet to do
I’m busy with our saviour
As we make a place for you
So wipe your tears and smile for me
It’s only for a while
Then I’ll meet you here at heaven’s gate
When you walk your last mile
You are forever missed

INTO A WORLD WITHOUT YOU
The day you died a cold embrace of air swallowed me
and every drop of warm blood drained from my heart.
The words, spoken out loud, clanged like deafening bells inside my head.
Leaving me as hollow as a half remembered dream.
I ache at every sunrise, sunset and memory of you.
I thought I heard you in the other room.
It was just a curtain caught in a breeze.
I want to find you, smell your skin, touch your hair.
These things, once so real, lie beyond my reach.
I want to bend this reality to make you stand beside me again.
I cannot stop the world from turning.
Days pass from that point in time where you left us.
I cannot go and find you.
Ten thousand winds can’t carry me to where you’ve gone.
Death has a grip that is unyielding.
And time flows like a tide that will not be stayed.
This is what I understand, I am learning.
Yesterday I smiled
In this world without you.
What passed between us lives in my bones and it is all that remains.
By Gale Massey,
sorry for your loss.
we have to walk in someonelses shoes to understand the reasons why life takes us up the wrong road at times, it doesnt mean you are bad,just lost,we are all someones child no mater how old we may be and its a blessing when we are loved unconditionally by our loved ones may you find peace one day.
