I remember just like it was yesterday. My family had beaten me up and you came out on the call. You got me out of the house.. Mr. Melvin Brown you took me to the hospital. You waited on me and then you press charges on them. I was around 13 or 14 years old ... I was a black little girl.. I thank God for you.. You never seen color... I miss you dearly.. I wish you can see how .. I have grown into a lady..

You are truly miss...
