 Personal Notes

My Uncle Junior was very special to me. He taught me alot. I owe my career to him. I considered my Uncle Junior as a second father. I will miss him so much. I think about him every day. I will go out and sit at the cemetery and just talk to him. I love him very much, and will always miss him.

Junior Brinkley was a very wonderful man. Although I am his great-niece, he was more like a father to me. He was actually the very first,not to mention only, man that treated me as a daughter. We miss him now, and forever. I am just glad that he no longer has to suffer. All my love, Chrissy

I miss my Brother more than anything in the World. He meant so much to me. I'll love and remember him all the rest of my life. He used to sit beside me, when we were little kids living with a foster family who was really mean to us. He was about 6 and I was about 3 years old. He would always tell me, "I'll always take care of you Genie. (That's what he called me when we were little kids)
