I feel for the mother of these girls. How will she ever be able to cope with such a tragedy. In the blink of an eye all 3 of her daughters were taken from her at the hands of the man she chose to father them. How horribly tragic. RIP Britney, Amber, and little Morgan.

thats what her estranged husband counted on.

If only she had stayed with him,none of this would have taken place.
What a sick pos he was.

now she has to ..according to his thinking..bear the brunt of the blame.

Now this is a story all about how my
Life got flipped turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
I'll tell you how I become the prince of a town called Bel-Air

In west Philadelphia born and raised
On the playground is where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out, maxin', relaxin', all cool
And all shootin' some b-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys they were up to no good
Started makin' trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
And said, "You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air."

I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror
If anything I could say that this cab was rare
But I thought, "Nah, forget it. Yo home to Bel-Air!"

I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8
And I yelled to the cabby yo holmes smell ya later
Looked at my kingdom I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the prince of Bel-Air.

Timber,
Sometimes people are hurtful and you have to just ignore them. People that say these things don't deserve an ounce of attention for you. Brit Brit amber and Morgan were very special and loved so much. They were taken too soon. They are now your angels looking over you and Karen. Don't let these people get to you sweetie. Luv ya timber.

I dont care what you ignorant people say, you are not a good father if you murder your children no matter the reason. I had to see 3 girls I grew up with and loved in caskets way before their time. Let them rest in peace and take comfort in knowing their in heaven, and their coward father is in hell.
