Bryan Kinsey who you considered a son, misses you and loved you very much. I Cheryl Bryan's girlfriend of 10 years will miss you very much. You always made me feel welcome in your home and treated me like a daughter. I know I wrote yesterday however I just couldn't finish. God has another angel on the throne tonight. We love you, and you will never be forgotten. Rest in peace Jimmy.
