    this is a tribute that is long over due
    this is a tribute especially for you
    such a remarkable spirit you possess
    and this poem i could no longer suppress

    you are so very special to me
    and i'm honored that you'd feel so free
    to lend any part of your sacred self
    allowing me to know such wealth

    not everyone is blessed the same
    not everyone can lay a claim
    to being as splendid as you are
    in or out, up or down, near or far

    your spirit transcends every barrier
    flowing gently and you are its carrier
    seeping through the pores of life
    unencumbered, removing strife

    allowing those you choose to touch
    the pleasure of their own sweet rush
    as your marrow moves through them
    reading thoughts inked from your pen

    you've given strength, not ever knowing
    before that moment weakness was growing
    you build me up and make me strong
    because of you i wrote this song

    this is a tribute that is long over due
    this is a tribute especially for you
    such a remarkable spirit you possess
    and this poem i could no longer suppress

    Rich I think you know...this is and always been about you.....You have always been Destee's backbone...and I am grateful that you still support her after all these years...I wish all the best for the fam..though I'm not here..my love will always be here...Destee even we at times had our differences..but you will and shall always remain as the queen who had the vision to have the premier site out here on the web...from humble beginnings to what is now an empire of black folks I salute you and pay you homage...I urge the entire family to stand behind her 100%....I've seen her struggle from the early days and I know that the struggle is yet...but with your support and encouragement she can and will continue to excel... Stay with her family and you shall forever be blessed...

    The Bishop has spoken.
