Thank you for loving me no matter what. Then, To the original JHUDS, my big bro and sis JASON and JULIA, I love you so much. Thank you both for rooting me on and believing in me and never letting me settle for just ok but the best. Because of u, I don't believe in limits. LIL JULIAN KING my lil nephew, I love u, baby.
Neighbor Angela Russell describes Darnell as a woman who had barbecues at her home. "She was very kind and very social," Russell tells
