    oH, how i loved cyvonia. But you know we tend to miss the big picture, God is the big picture yes cylvonia was a beautiful person but was she saved did she recieve JESUS CHRIST as her personal savoiur. we need to focus on what the word of God says GOD has rejuirements and its sad when anybody dies, but everybody is not going to heaven. Nobody is going because their good, Only GOD is good. REPENT FROM YOUR SINS. AND CALL ON JESUS.

    This is hard for me. I have been thinking of Cylvonia a lot lately. Haven't talked to her since I became a "mommy" in 2006. We promised we would stay in touch. I've been fighting the tears for a week now. I just found out a week ago and I'm devastated. I'm angry and hurt and sad and mad and confused and so many other emotions that I cannot articulate here. I kept promising her that I was coming to NC to visit. (Never put off 'til tomorrow)! My friend, my sista-gurl, my alley...gone!!! And there was no way for me to know. (I keep reading these notes, hoping I've somehow stumbled on a lie) but I know better. Ms Dot, I love you!!! Richard and Reggie, God Bless you. Kevin, many blessings and solace for you. I will keep you all in my prayers. Love Tisha

    I just found out Boogey was gone. He was a wonderful kid, as well as, young man. It hurts to know that Robert and Peggy lost their son. He was definately loved by all he met him. I only regret not seeing him before he left us. I love you Peggy and Robert. Love Debra

    To the Bizzell family. Its been almost two months and we still miss him. My 8 year old daughter says Boggie was her best friend. He was always so happy no matter what was going on in his life.

    Cylvonia, I am so upset that I had not gotten a chance to see you and talk to you before all this happened. "never put off tomorrow what you can do today." You will be truley missed and not forgotten. My heart goes out to your family. My love is with them.

    Boogie was more than a friend to the family...he was a brother. No one will ever take his place in our hearts. Our prayers goes out to the Bizzell family. He was person with a joyful spirit. He could make anyone smile, even in our worst times. I know he is looking down on us smiling and one day we will meet again. I will carry on his joyful spirit and bring joy to others as he has done for the lovitt family. We love you Boogie!!!!! :)

    It hard to believe that my cousin(cutty)is gone. We will miss her presence and laughter.But we know that to be absent from the body is to be present with the lord. If you really knew Cylvonnia, you know that She wouldn't want no one to have hate for your fellow woman and man. She would want you to pray for that person that did this tragedic act. It's going to seem very hard at first, but just remember that God put on us no more then we can bear. We ask the question Why? Cylvonnia Or Buggy? God take the ones that are ready and that gives us a chance to get ready and a chance to get to know him. We can learn from Cylvonnia's love for God and life. Don't waste time with hatred and angry.Lets keep Cylvonnia and Robert alive by giving the Lord the highest praise. My prayer goes out to my family and to Robert's family, also to the Mills family. WE LOVE AND WILL MISS U ALWAYS!!
