    THANK YOU DESTEE,

    YOU ARE SUCH A REAL SISTAH!

    THE WEIRDNESS OF IT ALL
    WITH OUT HAVING TO ...
    PERMENANTLY REST IN PEACE

    AND WE CAN JIVE
    THANK YOU THAT WE CAN COME BACK
    TO OUR RIGHT SENSE OF MIND

    THANK YOU DESTEE,

    CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S BEEN 6 OR 7 YEARS!
    I WISH THAT ALL YOUR BIRTHDAYS WISHES CAME TRUE!

    AND THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU'VE HAD TO DO!
    YOU ARE SOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL
    HEART, MIND, AND SOUL...

    YOU WELCOME THE HUNGRY AND THIRSTY

    YOU EDUCATE ME WITH THINGS THAT I HAVE NOT YET KNOWN
    AND YOUR ARTISTRY IS LOVELY
    AND ALL TO THEE, I DO SO EVER HUMBLY OWE

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU !!!! Gosh ... i have tears in my eyes Gurl !!!! I love this place, i love us, i love this community, i love the potential we have, to love each other and overcome all of the negative things that are put before us ... it's been a hard row to hoee ... but i'm honored that God saw fit to let me be a part of it ... oh my goodness ... you just don't know ... no one really knows i don't think ... but it does my heart so much good to read your words, your wishes, your hopes for me and the community ... Thank You Sweetie !!! :kiss: :kiss: :kiss: :kiss:

    You're so PRETTY !!!!!! :D ... I LOVE YOUR PICTURE !!!! :D

    After all these years i get to see Desert Storm !!! Thank You Sweetie !!!! :love:

    Thank you for these very warm and encouraging words ... i am honored ... Thank You !!! :love:

    Thank you for all the years you've been here with us ... we wouldn't be the same without you !!! :love:

YOU'VE TOUCHED SO MANY PEOPLE AND HAVE ALLOWED THEM TO SHARPEN THEIR GIFTS AND INSPIRE POETRY, LOVE FOR SELF, LOVE FOR EACHOTHER. I REALLY DO MEAN THAT WITH ALL MY HEART. And just remember that YOU'RE NOT ALONE. I know there have been so many times that this has been the only place that I can come to, TO RETREAT, OR TO EXPRESS MYSELF, and I know you've done THIS for others. YOU TRULLY MAKE US ALL FEEL SPECIAL HERE, so

    DS! What an AWESOME dedication...I loved it!!!!

    I agree with you and Rich and Miss Lady. I can't believe it'sonly been a month plus that I've been at Destee. I love my Fam sooo much and I KNOW it was only by God's divine plan that I land right here, exactly at the time when I needed to be here...you just have no idea what the past month has been like in my life. But just like everyone else...this is like my place of refuge without EVER having to leave the comfort of my own home!

    I love you Sis. Destee for all that you do and to all the mods that support you and Destee.com!

    Sis. Destee, just know that great things are on the way...you have no idea. Look out for a message from me.

    P.S. And DS, you are quite the beauty sweetie!!!!

    When you're truly at home, everything just seems to fall into place. The warmth from this piece is so intense, and well felt.
