The family has lovingly composed the following obituary information:

Some poetry to add from Dawn:

*Good day. Life is like a beautiful picture. Every picture has its underlying blemishes. It has its smears, smudges, and stains. Together it creates something worthy of being called life. Life is a series of experiences that invoke emotions and sensitivities, that unravel into precarious events. Elicit colors, vibrant lights, hues, and tints portray every situation involved in the creation of presence, LIFE. When one portrait of ambiance is created, one must be archived.  Every shade is worthy of memory. Every depiction is worthy of notoriety. Every infamous swipe of the instrument used to create the portrait is intentionally nothing every aspect involved in the eloquence. The intricacies of the notes. The rough draft.  The penciled outline. And, the results of the first presentation that clearly corrects any swipe that displays judicial diversities, in plain sight. Understand the evocation of your portrait, the shine in your light, the development of every stroke in your life. Then you will understand the mercies of home going...*

A poem from Leana.
*I love you mom, at least i tried to help you out , you know that I tried, but your not here to see me cry, the pain i have so deep inside, she'll never come out until i die.
I will remember the plans we made and never tryed, just sitting here remembering the day you took your last ride. Why they didn't help you, i can't lie , i can't except it as hard as i tried .
You left me with love and respect to divide amongs the family and friends you left behind.
Know that on that bed you didn't die, cause as long as i live ,Me and you will never ride.
