Freddie Dean Staten

In memory of the father I never got to know.  I hope I made you proud pops, and I really wished you were around to bond with your beautiful grandchildren.  My son LaVar, has your skin tone, and we definitely have to talk about that when we meet again, cause pops, you wouldn't believe how much drama that Staten blood in me caused, lol.  Can you see me laughing pops?  Well anyway, I also have a daughter, and her name is LaShonda.  Pops, can you believe they say she looks like Aunty Rose? 
In closing, I vow to you that I will literally die trying to reach all the siblings you left behind.  I love you pops, and if there really is a heaven, I hope to see you there. (No time soon though pops, so hold your horses).   Your first born child, Penny.

August 19th, 1955 - June 6th, 1995

To a wonderful father, grandfather and father n law. We really miss and anticipate seeing you again in heaven. You were the best father any girl could ever have. You were in my life for 21 years and within that time you taught me everything I needed to know to continue my life. The most important thing you taught me was, God, Love and Family. You have new grand and great grandchildren and I know you are smiling down on us all.

We are gonna have a good time at our first family reunion asthough you were here with us.
