We will go to the park, tell me lots of jokes, watch a movie and eat candy. It was really fun because we would play hide to go seek and you couldn’t find me. It was funny because I would be in your room and you would say niyah were are you when you already find me. You would tlckle me and I would tickle you back. I would brush your baby hair it was funny because I would make jokes. We will go to church ever Sunday then to Jumam Juice then home. Later during the day we will go to the park.

  6. I’ve looked at this page a hundred times trying to put into words how to say goodbye,but my faith tells me this is just farewell. Big brother you were there for me from the first day I came to Detroit. We turned some corners and had a blast. Sometiimes we ended up in places we had no business, but God watch over us and kept us safe. I’ll remember the good times, cookouts, family gatherings and most of all training young men and women for the rigors of Marine Corps boot camp. You were my friend, my Marine Corps brother and Prince Hall Lodge brother. I’ll look to sky and smile, because I know I’ll feel you smiling back. I thank the Huguley family for lending James to us all for just a little while. Man knows not the day, nor the hour, so I won’t say you left too soon because your assignment by God is complete. If the Army and the Navy ever look to Heaven’s scene, they will find the street are guarded by UNITED STATES MARINES! Well done thy good and faithful sevant. Semper Fidelis, #BigGuns
