Iman I'm sorry I didn't get to say goodbye to you. Everytime I saw you you asked how my boys were asking how are my brothers. I'm going to miss that dimpled smile. Rest Iman. I love you and your family.

My heart aches and my eyes tear!
Remembering a young woman who knew the struggle of being a single parent, but refused to give up.
With her beautiful infectious smile she buckled her seatbelt and headed down the highway called a better life. Iman was determined to provide and be the best mother to her children she could be. Iman was selfless often putting others needs ahead of her own. I can truly say if Iman had a frown on her face, it didnt stay long, her smile was like sunshine.
The first time I met Iman which was some years ago she was this shy young girl who held a special spot in my heart! Rest in Heaven Iman, you will be truly missed!
