Dwayne Anthony Woods 1973-1996

so much pain
Lord why did you have to take Dwayne

I dont mean to question your judgement
but I just miss my cousin

in hindsight I can see that we was living wrong
but I dont think the cure was two bullets in his lungs

at the funeral while they quote proverbs and Psalms
I'm holding on his moms arm trying to keep her calm

she crying my sons another homocide victim
if that bullet would have knicked him it would have gotten our attention

    I am sorry for your and your family's loss. I am also sorry that your cousin was not living the life that he should. I hope that this is a turning point for everyone that he touched so that they will question life and what it is about then make changes for the betterment of everyone. God be with you all in this loss. Keep the creative and magical pen flowing. Sara

    I am sorry for your loss Michael. We would be amazed to hear God's answer as to why, tho. I am sure. Sincerely, Love, Moses

    I'm so sorry for your loss, Michael. It was very kind of you to offer your aunt support at the funeral. I have lost two close friends to cancer and that was very difficult, but to lose your cousin this way had to be even more tragic. My heart goes out to you and your family. Some say the good die young; there may be truth in that statement. I hope your family pulls together and you are able to help each other through this tough time. Love, Carolyn
