It is so hard and unreal to believe you are gone to be with our father in heaven. Last time i seen you was at Church and as always you would greet me with a hug. We were just talking on who was going to win the NBA championship, I know you in heaven still rooting for OKC but I will always defend my Lakers :). Though I was not able to come to your homegoing,know I was there in spirit. you will always be remember and never forgotten and I will continue to pray for your children and family as God comfort them. RIP Tweety

My deepest condolences to the family of Darwin a.k.a. Tweety-Bird. May God comfort you all and give you the strength to cope with the loss of such a wonderful man. I remember when we were little, Tweety Bird use to come down the street to our house sucking that thumb and playing all the time. As adults, I remember talking to him on Facebook and him sending me pics of "my baby" lil Tweet (inside joke). The last thing he told me to do was to please smile so Tweet through these tears, I will honor your last request and smile :)see you on the other side my baby...love you
