To Rocky and my Whitehead Family. Thank you . It is really hard to say good by to someone you have know, been life long friends with, Mina was a dear friend . For as long as I can remember it has always been Mina, Deborah and I. Although Mina is no longer here with us physically it will always be Mina, Deborah and I. Mina and I talked just about every week and the last time we spoke was Wed. May 18, 2016 and she was sorting out things to give to her favorite past time, the Thrift Store where they knew Terry and her by name. The best part of Mina was Rocky because she loved him so much. Rocky, I know this is hard, but know that what you and your mom had will last for ever. Love you Mozella

My condolences to the family at this on the loss of your dear Mina. Because of our first parents'willful disobedience, all mankind has inherited sin and eventually death (Romans 5:12). May the promises of our Grand Creator (Psalms 83:18), to swallow up death forever (Isaiah 25:8), and to resurrect the dead back to life on a paradise Earth (John 5:28,29), by means of His son, Christ Jesus, brings you much comfort. Sincerely, Amy Edwards

A Letter from Heaven To Rocky and the Whitehead Family When tomorrow starts without me, if the sun should rise and find your eyes, filled with tears for me. I wish so much you wouldn't cry, the way you did today, while thinking of the many things, we didn't get to say. I know how much you love me, as much as I love you, and each time you think of me, I know you'll miss me too. When tomorrow starts without me, don't think that we're far apart, for every time you think of me, I'm right there in your heart. Our Deepest and Heartfelt sympathy to you Rocky, and to the entire Whitehead family. Mere words cannot express the sadness in my heart that I know you must feel. So, I will say this, I will miss my sister-friend forever. I will miss our friendship we shared through the years. I will miss the humor she imploded even when she didn't feel like laughing, she did it any way. Rocky, you were her sun, moon, stars and universe. She loved you so much. Years ago, there was a group called, the Hardy 3, it was Maurenia Clark, Lamaryce and myself. We spent much time together. Mina was a great designer, we among her sister, Cathy, modeled her clothing line. We became friends with the entire family especially hers sisters and her Mom, Moma Whitehead. There's just not enough space to talk about all the great times we shared.

My condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. When our loved ones die, the pain of grief may seem unbearable. Our loving God Jehovah is aware of this and comforts us by means of his word the Bible. 1 Peter 5:7 says: While you throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you. Also Psalm 34:18: Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.

- R. Sweatman

To the entire family: We extend our sincere condolences for your loss. We too, will miss her warm personality and amazing sense of humor. "Come unto me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28. Mina's work on this earth was finished, and hopefully, you can find comfort in knowing that she is resting safely in the arms of the Lord.

- Tanya & Robert Pittman

Dear Rocky: I wanted to offer my condolences to you and your family. I worked with your mother at Holland & Knight. More than "worked" with her, there were those of us who were "Sista's". Myself, Shanda Clemmons, Lura Battle, Mary Lamb, Cindy Black, Catherine Bedley and your Mama. We watched each other's back. There was a warm comradery that went without saying. We were family. Even though we (the sista's) might not see each other but maybe once every year or so, or maybe not even that regular, we always picked up like we saw each other every day at work. Rocky, you were the whole universe in your mother's eyes. She was so extremely proud of you even at a young age. Your mother will be truly missed by us all. Her legacy, in you Rocky, will live on.

Theresa Gaston & Family, We love you all so much and we pray that the Holy Spirit will comfort and keep you and give you peace. Mina was such a joy and we feel blessed to have known her. She is forever in our heart just as you all are. Again, we love you and we are always here for you. God bless you.
