My kids, I have been a single mom for a long time, 2 weeks before their dad passed way he told me, One thing i have always known about you, is that you can do anything you put your mind to, and that has resonated with me ever since, my kids who are now in college motivates me and helps with words of encouragement, helping and attending when I worked at vendor shows, the encouragement and strength the breast cancer treatment process.

My kids A.J. and Parris, My sister Wanda, and boyfriend Malik.
