My sincere sympathy to the family. I grew up with the Ruffin's in the old neighborhood. Life will bring on some major changes, but down through the years, God is still good!!! My prayers are with you.

Feather in your cap if you catch a robber,
Dirt in your face if your scheme falls through
Pay close attention to my story
Youll find every word is true.
Junk man standing on the corner
Selling death, no concience has he.
In the name of God, wont somebody stop him
stop him, think about the children
Its a matter of life and death, you see.
Aint no time to stand back and point your finger,

Weve got to face reality.
No, no, no, no, no...
Dont turn your back on this problem, people,
too much depends on you and me.
Desprate with no sense of value,
just an evil mind lurking through the night.
Because of you, the streets aint safe no more for walking,
cause youre feeling so up-tight.
Take a look around

You know the song, now tell everyone where you lifted it from, so they may enjoy. The lyrics seem to be timeless.

Love to my family.... A loving smile that I will never forget, she loved me for who I am and accepted me with open arms, I will hold that in my heart forever. I know that her mama loves the Lord and knows that God will carry her through this and what the enemy means for bad, God will turn into good. This next generation needs to know that they do have a purpose for their life and they need to give their life to Jesus and find their purpose before its to late. My love to you Kim always, I will always be there for you. My love to the rest of my family. We never know when our last breathe is going to be on this earth, let your loved ones know how much you love them. If you know Jesus, share it with them with boldness, that is the most important way that you can show them your love. Mone, it is hard knowing that I won't see your smile again here or hear you say "luh u", but I do know I will see you again in heaven and we will be together for eternity, much love.

Thats Take a Look Around by The Temptations from March,1972.
Not a big hit but one of their most heartfelt songs.
