Memories Timeline


  1. My neighborhood friend….a guy with a kind spirit and big heart! Thanks for letting your light shine. You will definitely be missed. My deepest condolences to the family.

  2. Words cannot express how I feel about your passing and how you left this world! Who would’ve thought that we would end up having the same careers as we got older. We grew up together, we played together and we even got in trouble together I’ll never forget when your mother , my auntie, made me go outside to get a switch off the tree cause you straight snitched on me!😂. she made me go outside to get my own switch off the tree and I got punished. I was so mad at you. Those times and many happy memories we shared is what I’ll hold onto until we see each other again. I love you always. Rest easy cuz.

  3. To my big cuz!! Looking back at my childhood I remember how you renamed me “boo-boo”. And up until the time you left, you continued to address me with that name 😂. Your smile and laugh was contagious. You always had a family memory to share, whether it be a old photo or a story. You kept the family memories alive. You will be missed. Until we meet. Love you! ❤️

  4. To my big cuz and someone I considered a big brother, we had some great memories growing up in Milwaukee, until I moved to Mississippi. You will be greatly missed. Rest in peace!

  5. We love when we heard because was coming to babysit us . I remember when you taught us how to draw from Iron Man 2 Incredible Hulk Spider-Man true Talent. I couldn’t wait to get to Aunt Jean’s house so I can mess with your records put on your headphones and sit in front of your stereo for hours. Love you big cuz

  6. To my big cuz you will be always remembered in my heart always fam.I remember when you got us in trouble with auntie your moms taught me a lesson about spitting on a people.You were always an old soul when you were younger.Young man rest in paradise.

  7. Cranston, my dearest nephew, has received his wings at what I consider an early age. I can only say my sister, your mother, was instrumental in instilling positive moral values as you and your brothers and sister grew up. My heart is broken as I reflect on you and your life successes. I am blessed to say I was and am your aunt who loves you and your brothers and sister dearly. I’ll miss your profound Facebook reflections that you shared with everyone each day. I can only think of this excerpt from a poem that was written by an unknown author. “For this journey we must all take, and each must go alone. It’s all a part of the Master’s plan, a step on the road to home. Why cry for a soul set free! Remember to love that we once shared, Miss me but let me go”.

  8. Sorry for your loss ,I remember, Cranston as a respectful man ,enjoyed many Sunday visits at my home with other young people from church ,he will be missed by many, We pray God’s comfort to you his family as you go through this time of grief ,Love You All Mama Willie Gladney ,-Tupelo MS
