I light this candle as the warmth of memories linger within my heart everyday for my firstborn. It’s been forty-one years since I laid my daughter, Glenecia, to rest 21 Apr 1979. I just wonder what she would have been like today; she was just a few weeks shy of her 5th birthday, 18 June. I do know that she loved the person who was responsible for her death on that Good Friday, 13 April, but that love was masked by over-drinking. Her little, but strong voice I speak for today in hopes that lives can be saved by saying “no” to drinking and driving, acting responsibly, making the right choices to avoid being in places or positions that breathe a wrong decision. I love you, NeeNee, my angel forever! Mommie
