President Nelson Mandela, the Madiba will forever be remembered, an activist, a great humanitarianRead More and a remarkable leader who sacrificed himself for the love of his people, the South Africans.

Knowing Lil'Cecil from birth has been a joy. To see him grow. flourish and become "All"Read More he was destined to be is all a family can hope for their children. His was a life 'well-lived' and he did it so quickly. I have had the pleasure of being friends with this family, sharing in your joys, and now sharing your sorrow. But all is not lost, because your prayers have all been answered. . . He's finally arrived. . . The healing that you'd hoped for, has now been realized. No ones in a hurry, theres no schedule to keep He's just enjoying Jesus, and sitting at His feet. . And If you could see him now, He's walking streets of gold If you could see him now, Hes standing tall and whole If you could see him now, You'd know he's seen His face If you could see him now, You'd know the pains erased. You'd never want him to leave that perfect place, If you could only see him Now! My fraternity brother. . . Once a Sinfonian! Always a Sinfonian!

Ralph A. Long III January 8, 2013 at 02:57 am
I'm a classmate of Cecil's from North Atlanta. We were in the first class and in the band togetherRead More under Mr. Colbert. Cecil was a well disciplined musician, a good friend, and a good boy all together. I remember the freshness of our uniforms as the school was brand new, and the pride we took in our steps as we marched for the beginning of North Atlanta's New legacy. Cecil was very proud of his position at Maynard Jackson, very proud and I was too for him. His life was cut too short and he will be missed. Cecil was headed for greatness like Vanable Moody. To his family, the Long family sends our regards and as we traverse sorrow's difficult terrain please don't hesitate to reach out. We are shocked and saddened. Ralph A. Long III

I never got a chance to see you at the wake my brother but thankfully the mark that you have left down here is good enough for eternity. You definitely walked to the beat of your own drum man.

You are one sick puppy. Instead of just offering your condolence for the Congressman, you are soRead More insensitive that you have to bring politics into it. How classless is that.
Decaturette January 10, 2013 at 02:27 am
Condolences to Rep. Lewis and family. I wish the blogs on Patch were moderated to remove rudeRead More comments and attacks. The reason I enjoy Decatur Metro much more is because of the moderation. In fact, I think Patch would be better off if it consisted just of news and announcements without the comments.

Ours Prayers are with Rep John Lewis and the family. Mrs. Lillian Miles Lewis was a wonderful woman.Read More She made a difference in the lives of so many, especially, the least of these and her family. She answered the most urgent and persistent question in life, which is "What are you doing for others". Lillian served in the Peace Corps, and traveled far and wide to serve those who were in need. Lillian made a difference in her community and most of all; Lillian supported her husband to the best of her ability. Mrs. Lillian Mile Lewis rest in perfect peace, as you have run a good race, rest in peace until we meet again. The Lord will give Rep. John Lewis and the entire family the wisdom, and the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss. Mrs. Naomi Ruth Barber King Dr. Babs Onabanjo

Ronald Boone December 21, 2012 at 12:51 am
He was my father. my name is Ronald, i was his favorite. he was my god, my strength, my source.Read More before i met the Lord .he was my first look into the nature of God, in that his love radiated in all directions. it didn`t matter who you were, what you have done in your past, or what you might do in the future. the only thing that mattered was that you needed help. i can remember growing up around all kinds of convicts. although you would never know it to look at them. my daddy taught me not to judge a man for what he has been through, nor for where he is right now, but for what he wants to be and what he is willing to endure to achieve his goals. but more, not to judge at all. JUST HELP! it dosent mean anything if your helping others is based on what you get in return. I can not remember at any point in my life where John Oscar ever brought up " I did this or i did that for you , you owe me!" even the ones that did owe him, he never reminded them their debt. he is the most selfless person i have had the honor to have known..... i know that in life i was most greivious for you. i caused you the most shame. daddy your passing has cattipolted me to a place of new revelation and understanding . thank you you can be proud now. i have the torch now, and i will run the race set before me. i will endure til the end!

I am so sorry that this happened......You know what a few years a go an APD officer almost caused meRead More and this other driver to have an accident due to a chase (if I remember correctly). The officer was probably going 65 mph in a 35-45 mph area. The chase was coming the opposite direction of me driving but I didn't know until I came over a hill. I had to turn on the curve immediately to keep from hitting the driver that swerved in my lane because officer swerved around in to on coming traffic to get around the person in front of him. Smh. My prayers go out to the victim and the victim's family....

Daddy, please know you have an Army of Your Friends who are helping me to get Justice for youRead More against what Rachel did denying me my Right to bury you and for the violation of law by several to notify next of Kin of your death. You taught me to be a fighter. Well, the entire football team is on my side!! And there are lawyers and they have lawyers, too. And they aren't even charging me a penny. Lots of mad people. I'm crying, hurt and shocked...but they're carrying me, Daddy!! We're back on the bus again. And I'm soooo sorry Rachel stole from you, manipulated you, deceived you and sucked in Clara, Mike and David and all "her" friends. They will all get what is coming to them. God knows that asking forgiveness doesn't count when one knows that it wasn't a matter of I'll "forgive them for they know not what they do."

To, Mary W. and Rosalind McKinney, Yeah it is so very SAD! It has been said that men can't handleRead More PAIN so well. Sad to say, he let his feelings and PRIDE over rule his judgement. I so wished they'd had remembered there Old school/never ever forgetting their child rearing training of what would Jesus Do? Now and then, which is never EVER, outdated or old... But Success and the lust of it blinds us so much to forget our real old time/old school chruch up bringing, if he 'd that?.. Due to his age, I believe he had to, some where down the line. Now a soul is in Hell for this. The word says that GOD is NOT ever a man, that He should Lie! Nor does He hath to repent for writing His very own words...That must come to past. Now this is ministring to me as well. 1st and foremost, I wrote this to you'll and others that might see it as well. Yes we must truly hold up his family, his two sons that was ROBBED of there father, (thru this selfish act he did to them), not realizing/caring about the PAIN of apparent suicide? His son's and Us ALL Needs KING Jesus strength to get thru this trying awful time. But Lord we thank you for healing, delivering them in every way possible, In Jesus Name, we ask, we believe, we except it to be so.

Mrs. Sewell's impact on education in the Southwest Atlanta area, namely students from West ManorRead More Elementary is extremely profound. Mrs. Sewell not only introduced us to poetry, but she opened our minds and took us on a journey beyond our community. On this journey we learned how to "Be Strong" and she taught us how to imagine what we could do "If" we just believed in ourselves. We watched battles unfold as we joined the "Charge of The Light Brigade." We learned how to see the splendor of nature as we watched "The Daffodils." Through Mrs. Sewell's efforts and hard work she taught us how to find "Solitude" through poetry. From sixth grade, one of my favorite books is and always will be the one that we had to have and that is "One Hundred and One Famous Poems;" I have two copies one at home and one at work. If I had to choose one poem that reflects my feelings about Mrs. Sylvia Sewell’s, legacy it would be: "Not In Vain" by Emily Dickinson. If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain: If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain, Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain. Mrs. Sylvia Sewell accomplished all of the above. She did not live in vain. To Mrs. Sylvia Sewell's family, we thank God for allowing us to share a portion of our time with this Angel of a lady and we thank you for letting us share in the celebration of her life. Sincerely, Frederick M. Williams, Ed. S. Mrs. Sewell’s Student "76 - 77"
Brian D. Poe November 3, 2011 at 12:48 pm
Mrs. Sylvia Sewell was an amazing woman. I think we all agree that she made each and every personRead More "step up their game" in life, when that person was taught by Mrs. Sewell, even if she was not their primary teacher. Thank God for me that she was my primary teacher. When you walked into her room, you felt like you were on a stage for your entire visit or stay each day. You wanted to perform your very best. She even monitored our posture. Her motto was to take pride in ourselves and take pride in life. "Today is the first day of the rest of your life!" I cannot remember how many times she said that to us. Basically, seize the opportunities that you have today! Seize life! Hold yourself responsible and accountable, and push yourself to your highest limit! And do it with a style and a smile on your face! It was amazing because every single student seemed to buy into her vision. Because we all knew that she believed in us and our gifts and was pushing us to be the best. And so, we were! We had some amazing teachers at West Manor Elementary School. What a great place it was, and I hope it still is. With that said, Mrs. Sewell was truly the best of the best. Attorney Brian Poe, West Manor Elementary Class of 1979.

Janita-- your comments about Rev Lowery are just as important too. He is another Civil Rights iconRead More who walks among us! Anyone who hasn't heard him preach, has never felt the fire of righteousness! We in Atlanta take him for granted, and he must also be cherished while he is here. He is another blessing!
Rev. Lionel R. Gantt October 7, 2011 at 03:14 pm
Janita, as always you reach out and touch our hearts. These men were willing to give their life forRead More change and the sad thing is that many did give their life and we do not read about them, sing songs about them or even remember them. I was just telling my Brother in this fight the same thing in a letter asking them to completely sell out for the cause. ( I will send you a copy) This has been a long and bitter fight, sad to see that it is still not over. In the word of God every 40 years there is a major change, 48 years later and we are fighting this battle again. My God bless the families of those who fought this fight and may raise up new soldiers to join us in this fight. God bless our icons of civil rights, those both seen and unseen, those we know and those we don't know; but none are forgotten. Thanks
Janita Poe October 7, 2011 at 03:20 pm

Thank you. Mr. Williams. It is so important to keep the legacy of Troy Davis alive. For either oneRead More of us can be in the same circumstances.
