I am really sorry for the loss of your loved one. I know of a family who lost someone to a drowning in that lake as well. Tragic.

but...
Please take some english classes if you want to be taken seriously and succeed in life.

Its always a tragic loss when a family member passes on. I would have to agree though with SicknTired, english classes are badly needed for both Monique and Jasmine. That is something you really need to work on.

BUrrito man, it isn't talking trash, it is good advice. If they type like that they speak much worse and how will they ever achieve anything with that sort of verbage.

Life isn't a big text message and to be taken seriously and earn my total sympathy and respect in a public forum, someone has to have the ability to express themselves in a rational and concise manner.

I have to agree with Sickn Tired. We all have bad habits that need to be broken. It's just unfortunate it may hurt our feelings in the process of being told. It shouldn't be taken as an insult, it is only a noted reminder that we need to push ourselves hard to exceed in life.

So sorry for your loss! May God Bless your family in this time of need!

I worked with Dwayne and found him to be one of the nicest people in the company. We all miss his smile and good nature. We were all shocked by the tragic news of his passing.

Again, sorry for your loss but I can't really comprehend what you wrote there as it is highly illiterate. Do not fool yourself however, how you talk does matter a great deal, it lends legitimacy and validity to your statements.

This is a general statement and in now way directed squarely at you Moniqe. If people don't want to be sterotyped then they should stop living the stereotype they complain about being associated with.

I hope the deceased's family finds peace in celebrating his life and not in the tragedy of his death.

Dwayne was a wonderful person that cared about people, especially his son. Although he will be missed his memory and his son is still living. Dwayne changed his life for the better and became a great example of a man, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. My prayers are going out continuously for the family and for Sickn Tired who has nothing better to do than to ridicule a family member in a time of despair. Some things are better left unsaid and this is one of those times. But remember you reap what you sew or shall I say Karma is a big bite in the but so be careful someone might be just as tasteless towards you as you have been towards Monique.

Please share! I am having a hard time with the drowning thing! I grew up with him and knows he wouldn't have placed himself in harms way purposely.

Oh okay bleeding heart, thanks for the so serious and useful prayers.
HA

I stand by my statements and if I happen to lose someone dear to me in a tragic accident you won't find me on a public message board leaving comments that people can barely understand nor sympathize with due to my illiteracy.

To My Soul Mate

I must say Dwayne Childs; you were one heck of a man. You were my lover, my friend, and well on your way to being my husband. You departed on Sunday, August 31st 2008 leaving no doubt in my mind that you were a wonderful father and an awesome human being. I will be with your son Dwayne Jr. every step of the way so he will never forget how much you loved and cared for him.

I am so empty without you. Honey, I sit numb yet I realize that God is the author and finisher of our destiny.

Dwayne, you and I made each other happy to the last days. I will miss you, our kids Dwayne Jr., Chanderlyn, and Joylynn plus your favorite niece on my side of the family Esther Wynter ask me to wish you farewell.

As with life’s lessons and the experience of death, I am sure we will reunite again.

To prove my point SicknTired still chooses to leave derogatory comments. You really need a life and someone to love. I refuse to continue this and will not enter this website again they shouldn't allow idiots like you to send the messages that you have sent. Everyone handles loosing someone dear to them in their own way and if this sites allows individuals to vent and settle their emotions than so be it. To Dwayne's nieces please ignore this person it is obvious he has no one to love. Please focus on your family especially Dwayne's son and not the ignorant messages of someone that didn't know your uncle to began with.

My heart goes out to you and your kids! I saw Dwayne back in December at a going home service of a childhood friend we both shared and he was the only one in the service with his bible and often spoke of God. He is in a better place and I am sure although he loves you guys wouldn't trade places. One again am sorry for your loss and I pray his kids remember what he stood for in the things of the Lord and follow in his walk and better.

The news is tragic; my life with Dwayne is now all memories. I hope the memories of your childhood life with Dee are for keeps. Let's all allow him to rest in peace dispute the untold stories that plague the airways.

Trust me; we all will miss my Dwayne.
