    I define a friend as family; a group of people who live together/apart and take care of each other near and far. Sometimes, I really do wonder if you meet people for a reason. I don’t know what I did to deserve such an amazing group of male and female friends. My parents and siblings treat everyone in my life like family and that custom is returned everywhere I go. I am beyond blessed in this world to have a home offered to me in every major city in this country & many other countries. From San Francisco to Los Angeles, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Chicago, Dallas, Austin, Houston, Oklahoma City, New Orleans, Montgomery, Louisville, Boston, Hartford,Manhattan, Montreal, and Toronto.

Whatever greater force God/Allah/Buddha/GreaterForce is blessing my friends & family, I am forever grateful.
