Reflection of Life
Dear Lydia,
I never dreamed I would be
writing this so soon. I was three
years old when Thomas
and the late O. Ethel
Buckner brought you
home and sat you on
my lap. You were
almost as big as I was
already! You went to
St. Paul Lutheran
School, People's Jr. High and
then graduated from Purcell Marian in 1987.
As kids, mom had us in everything she could think of.
Mom made us both start taking piano lessons at the ripe
young age of three. I don’t think most people even knew
you played the piano. We had to sing in every choir in
the city. We were in the Cincinnati Baptist District
Association Youth Choir and the Gospel Music
Workshop of America Cincinnati Chapter. When you
were a teenager, you started singing with Peace and
Serenity and later with Mark Jones and Prosperity. You
were a debutante for the G.M.W.A. You were in Xenos.
You were a cheerleader. You played basketball (not as
good as me though!) You loved to dance (which I still
cannot do!) You were THE social butterfly and
somehow managed to know, remember, and stay in
contact with people you went to Jr. High School with
for thirty years.
You went to Morris Brown College and graduated in
1992 with a B.S. in Business Administration. You
worked for Morris Brown College for a few years then
completed twelve years at Georgia Tech.

You had Camred (which surprised us all!); then Raven
(which was an even bigger surprise!). You loved and cared
for them like I never would have imagined you could.
You were so good at making everyone else feel special and
loved that even those around you had no idea how sick
you were. We know you were tired, and we may not like
the path you chose; but God knew what was best. Only
God can fill the void that has been left.
Your son, Camred and your daughter, Raven will be loved
and cared for just as you would want. We are so blessed
that God planted Lisa Culpepper in our lives to be more
than a sister to us for twenty-six years. I thank God for
allowing her to be a part of our lives. I thank God for all
our family, but our "FCs" (Favorite Cousins): Lawrence
and Darren Adkins and Leslie Moye, are more than
cousins. They have been more like brothers and sisters,
and we could not have gotten through these last few
months without them.
You know Daddy turned ninety in December. He loves
his baby girl! His heart is heavy. I will do my best to take
care of him in connection with your champagne taste
(LOL)! I think you waited for me to get to Atlanta to tell
you, "I love you" one more time, and so I could hear you
tell me that one more time. I have to think that Mama was
waiting right there as you made your way from labor to
reward. The miracle in all this is that in the last few
months, the first time you ever said you were in pain was a
few hours before you slept away. Sleep on. Your smile is
etched in our memory. We will hang on to that memory
until we see you again.
