Dear Stacy, Doreen, Nadine, Carlisa, Ms. FLo and Mr. Dossie,

I am heartbroken to hear of the passing of Jaybird.
I have not seen him in many years, however, he along with the Foster/Silver family, will always be apart of my childhood memories.

Some of my fondest memories...Jaybird letting me race a car on his racing track... walking me home from Williams store...and most of all, teaching me how to ride a skateboard! :-)

My condolences to you all. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
