Too swift for those who fear,
Too long for those who grieve,
Too short for those who rejoice,
But for those who love, time is

He graduated in 2009.

Donald III leaves to cherish his memory, his parents Donald G. Jr. and Anissa Hyder; his sisters, Dymesheon G. Hyder and Nikera Beasley; his cousin, Jared Craig; his grandparents Virginia Hyder, Donald G.

Yahausha walked on water

So I’m solid like an alter

Yahausha the carpenter

So I’m a saw duster harvester

Yahausha forgive the hate they harbor

So I can walk with no chips on my shoulder
