My dad called me this morning at 10:00 or so. My brother stopped breathing at 9:45 am. Everybody was there with him when he slipped away into his new life. My mom said she will never forget that moment...it will forever play in her memory. We all miss him so much already. One of his best friends informed us today that he is expecting a son in a few months, and he wants to give him my brother's name (Dyrol) which is a unique name. We are sooo flattered by that!

    TRACE's Interests:

    About Me: Myself and my brother were both born in Los Angeles and Compton, but raised in New York. Both my sisters were born here in New York. I have a 14 y.o. daughter, soon to be 15, born 1 day b4 my b-day & we share the same name but spelt differently; we are 30 years apart in age!! I am not with her father, but we "try" to be civil. I am graduating this Saturday from ITT Tech; getting my 2nd Associates Degree. And I am now considering taking an online course to get a bachelor's degree in Construction Management. I have a sister that lives in VA, and I recently lost my brother to cancer. He was 11 months older than me. I lost an older sister back in 1977 to kidney disease (she was 17 when she passed); 11 months before that we lost our dearest grandmother very tragically. My dad lives in VA, and I live in NY with my mom, as I have to keep an eye on her. she is getting up there in age--driving me nuts....Lol. I like a little innocent gossip every now & again...but you didn't hear that from me!! And I am very opinionated and trying to learn to control that...Lol...I'm laughin cause...it ain't workin out! As you can tell...I like a good laugh but I know how and when to be serious. I am so serious when it comes to my daughter & two nephews. I am a strong woman (very thick skin) but can be sensitive at times. My most embarrassing moment: I'll just say...putting my foot in my mouth (done that a couple of times). Remember I am opinionated!! I really have to concentrate on learning that less is best! People I miss dearly: Toni & Dee, Grandma Emily & Grandma Lela; my girl cousins that always looked out fo' me--Lisa, Gail, Natalie...and so many more family members...R.I.P. yall. There is one other person I miss with all my heart....but I refuse to speak on it!!!! That is my story and I am sticking to it....LOL!

    Interests: I like to go see a good movie, take my daughter out and treat her to lunch or dinner, or a little shopping spree when I can. I like to go out to happy-hour maybe once or twice a year. I enjoy laughing at my crazy-behind nephews! Messing around on the computer putting together home-made videos to music. Another passion I have is sluething, investigative stuff (getting into people bizzness & bringing out the skeletons)...Lol. I want to learn how to build computers; and I want to eventually get into remodeling homes one day. Doing anything that will improve my situation. Therefore, my #1 focus in my life....getting better acquainted with....My Lord & Savior and being the best Saint I can be!! Yes...that's right--I am there!

    Favorite Music: Old School & New Skool, R&B / Hip-Hop / Rap, Classic Soul, Easy Listening (sometimes), and definitely gospel. Artists such as the ultimate sexy crooner--Keith Sweat!!

    Favorite Television: The First 48 on A&E, Cops & Americas Most Wanted, Judge Mathis & other court tv, Maury's paternity test shows are hilarious, The Wire (on HBO), Food Network Channel, Good Morning America, All of Us, a couple of Reality Shows, Deal or No Deal, Martin Lawrence re-runs, ComicView, American Justice
