  1. You will be missed William. I love you and take comfort knowing that you are watching over all of us. Fly high Angel. Till we meet again

  2. I have nightmares and can’t sleep.
    The loss of you is a wound so deep.
    My mind recorded the times we had.
    Knowing there will be no more memories makes me sad.I struggle for answers to what went wrong. I’ll miss you my whole life, however long.My world has changed to black and gray. My tears come frequently every day.I don’t think my heart will heal. I still can’t accept that this is real.Keeping you close is not enough.Happiness and smiling is so tough.
    How can I go on without you here?
    Finding out there is no heaven is my greatest fear.One more day, just one more time to hold my child and ease my mind.I hope you knew how much you meant and how much I loved the child God sent.My heart, my soul will never be the same. I will always cry when I hear your name. Love dad ..

  3. You showed me a lot of things.
    I learned a lot I didn’t know,
    But you forgot to teach me one last thing How to let you go.
    I know you didn’t mean to leave me;
    Sometimes we have no choice.
    I miss being your little sister,
    Hearing my name called by your voice.
    I wish I got to say “I Love You”
    Before you were given to the sky.
    If God could grant me one last wish,
    I’d ask to say “Goodbye.”
    You always meant a lot to me.
    I could never love you less,
    I know it’s true when they say,
    “He only takes the best.”

  4. We are so sorry for the loss of Williams smile! Our sons grew up with William and Rajric, The Coleman’s were Deshaun’s second home during the Davidson Elementary days! Lady and Mike always made sure the boys were good, fed, safe. William was so energetic and full of life! Him and Rajric gave each other lip like brothers always do! Fast forward to present time and when we last we saw William, he talked of future goals and he had so much more to do in his time here. Sadly, he is gone too soon and with his leaving- a void in the lives of those who have to live on without him. Our prayers for the Coleman/Brookins Family – We Love You- McDonald Family (Deshaun in Spirit)

  5. l will never forget the beautiful days we shared
    I’ll never let go of our memories we shared
    Many days have passed by
    OH the tears that have filled my eyes praying that I solve the lies
    that tore us apart that very night
    Never will life be the same
    for you are gone that is a shame
    One day again I’ll see you soon….Love auntie Pat

  10. To Lady..I am so heart-broken over William’s passing. It’s hard to not feel sad because I love you so much. Although I didn’t get to see William grow up, I was there when he was a baby. Sooo cute! He was a good baby. I loved taking care of him when you went out. I would play in his pretty hair, wash him up, put his pj’s on him, then give him cookies!! He loved it. I stretch my arms out to you all the way from Detroit. I am blowing you continual kisses. May God keep William’s children in perfect peace and guide them right now! May God be with us all.
    Your God-sister Treena💞
