A Tribute from Avery~
Mom I love u so much the woman that brought me into this world and gave me life and everything I could ask for. I'm so broken that God called ur name early but I know you're in a better place now Mama and I'm sorry we didn't get to spend more time together.
We had everything planned out for the future - going to my NBA games, skydiving, shopping, buying a house that u liked, buying ur dream car. Everything that we wanted to do I planned to make happen bc I love u so much and wanted to make u happy.
But now that got taken from me. Left a scar on my heart, a scar that may never heal but I made a promise and I'm gonna stick to it Mom. I promise u I'm going to make it to the league if it's the last thing I do.
Well Mom, I love u so much and I will never stop loving u. Rest easy and leave ur care to me.
