So many things have come to mind as I write and everyone of them has me laughing. That's the thing that made us friends the first time I met you at cosmetology school.

We are so saddened by this tragedy. We only met Hollen for a brief time and was looking forward to our friendship for the future. Life was stricken and life will not be the same not knowing what our future may hold together. She was full of life and knowing she made one of my dearest friends from high school such a proud man and as happy as he can be it makes me sad for this family to go true such a tragedy such as this. Our family has had a bond for years and will continue to grow strong thru this tragic time!I I love you bro. Let me know what you need. We are here for you. God bless!

Hollen, words can't even begin to describe how broken my heart is without you. You are my everything. You are my Queen, my Wife, my best friend and my partner in crime. All the greatest days of my life were spent with you. I have never known a heart like yours and this world will never be the same without you. Thank you for the love you blessed me with. Thank you for all the amazing times we had. All of me loves all of you always and forever.


When I got home from the airport there was a rainbow in the sky just as I turned onto my road. I’m sure you sent it for me. You always had a smile for me. I wish I had handled things differently. Now all your worries are gone. Fly free Sis, nothing can hold you down now. I love you.
