I love You, DAD What can you say to someone who has always been One of the most essential parts of your world, Someone who took you by the hand when you were very little and helped to show the way?

What do you say to someone who stood by to help you grow Providing love, strength, and support So you could become the person you strived to be? What can you say to let him know that he did great And gave the best a daughter could have asked for through his wisdom and strength? What words would you say if you ever got the chance? Maybe you just say, I love You, Dad, And hope he understands.

On Aug 18, 2002 in Toledo, Ohio, Meechi Noel and Anthony Bridgeforth

were blessed with a beautiful baby girl, whom they named Imani Renee´ Bridgeforth. At the tender age of seven, Imani confessed her faith in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She was baptized on April 9, 2009, at Middle Baptist Church. Imani had an infectious personality! Imani’s smile was captivating, and it lit up the room! Imani’s life was full of laughter & joy! Her hugs & love for God, family & friends were nonstop. She possessed strength and dedication. She enjoyed music, dancing, and spending time with her friends. Throughout her life, Imani displayed her love for Music and Arts. At an early age, she danced for the Memphis Allstars. While attending American Way Middle School, Imani was a cheerleader; she played softball, soccer, and was a member of the band when she developed her love for the trumpet. Imani was currently a freshman at Southwind High School where she continued her love for sports. While spending summer vacations with her father, Imani attended summer camp and was also the captain of her father’s football team (Whitehaven Steelers). God granted Imani an eternity of peace and rest when He called her home on January 4, 2017. She is preceded in transition by her grandfather, Frederick Noel and great-grandmother, Leona Bridgeforth. Memories of Imani Renee´ Bridgeforth will be cherished by her loving and devoted parents, Meechi I. Noel (Demario D. Thomas) and Anthony R. Bridgeforth; five brothers, four grandmothers, one grandfather, and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. Imani’s spirit and love will live forever in our hearts. We realize that this is God’s work, He sent His angels to peacefully usher her to her eternal home. We thank Him for loaning Imani to us and all the precious memories.

A Mother’s Love

An Instant best friend Someone to talk to when times get ruff A mother’s love is always just enough When you fall down She’s the helping hand to pick you up And when your heart is broken She says the words that comfort you so much Through tears she can make you smile Easing the pain all the while bringing Laughter even through a frown Unwavering her belief that your special Always willing to let you shine Just one more way to show that a Mother and Daughter’s Love is one of a Kind
