In Loving Memory of Bee Torn

On Monday, October 15th, 2018 the lives of many would forever be changed.

We were informed that Rithina Torn, lovingly known as Bee , was taken away from us far too soon. 

He was a father, son, brother, cousin and friend. He wasn't perfect but he treated everyone with respect. He was loyal to his friends and family to the very end. He never failed to put a smile on someone's face and would give you the shirt off of his back or the very last dollar he had just to make sure you were okay. One thing he always said to us was " If I eat, y'all eat". 

He loved the kids. His own, his godchildren, nieces and nephews. The uncle that always gave the babies all the hugs,kisses and cuddles. The older kids got the unsolicited advice and they would laugh him off or roll their eyes at him. He would do anything to protect the kids. Anything. 

His mother was his queen. Day in and out all he ever wanted to do was show her that he appreciated everything she ever did for him. That was his rock. His soul. Whatever mama needed he would do his best to get it. He wanted her to be proud. 

No mother should ever have to lay their child to rest. No child should ever lose a parent to something so senseless. 

On behalf of Bee's family, his longtime partner, Samantha and his eldest son, Tyler,  we are asking for donations to help his family in this unexpected and sudden time of need. Please be assured that every dollar will make it to his family to help with the unexpected costs that come with losing someone you love. If you are unable to help out with a monetary donation, please share this with others and spread the word. 

We appreciate all the love and support from everyone, everywhere. Please continue to keep Bee's family in your thoughts and prayers. 

Rest Easy, Bee. We all love and miss you. Until we meet again.
