The Order of Service
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for
thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my
head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the
house of the Lord for ever.

His LifeStory
Brian Jerome Parham aka ‘Tiny Moe Loc’ was born
October 2nd, 1979 in Los Angeles, California to the union
of Willie James Parham (06/26/1951 – 05/21/2010) and
Bianca Christine (Miller) (09/16/1955 – 09/16/2016).
Tragically, Brian was killed in a car accident on the
freeway in Visalia, California 12/16/2016.
Raised by the streets of LA, and educated by the State of
California ‘School of Hard Knocks’ penal system, Brian
used the life lessons learned from both to define his
sense of Loyalty, Honor, and Respect.
He left South Central in June of 2002 and relocated to
Chico, California to get a fresh perspective on what Life
had to offer with his best friend, his Keeper, his Big
Brother - Kym Parham. The love shared between these
two cannot be measured in mere words. They built a
lifetime of memories, and shared many adventures that
cemented their bond as brothers and best friends that
can never be broken. When you think about Brian after
today, say a Prayer over Kym as His heart is broken and
pieces of Him left when Brian transitioned.
Brians’ favorite things included Loving his kids, Loving
his siblings, Hustlin’, Reppin Venice ShoLine, going
fishing, blowin’ trees, shopping for gear, attending
family functions, Henney, pepperoni pizza, McDonalds
cheeseburgers and fries, no pickles, no onions, and
Sprite soda.
His LifeStory
He dreamed of utilizing all his street hustling skills and
opening legit businesses to create income to support all
his children properly and to leave to them as his legacy.
It was important to him to give them what he himself
never had as a kid. It was important to him that his
children would be Proud to be called his babies.

If Roses Grow in Heaven
If roses grow in Heaven,
Lord please pick a bunch for me,
Place them in my Brother's arms
And tell him they are from Pooney.
Tell him we love him and I miss him,
And when He turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon his cheek.
And hold him for awhile.
Because remembering Brian is easy,
I do it every day.
But there's an ache in my heart
That will never go away.

To My Love,
I never thought that this day would come where I would have to write a letter to my husband, best friend and kids father
who God called home so soon.
I was at work when I got the call " sis Brian is gone." I couldn't except what I heard nor did I want to believe or comprehend
it. I cried, I screamed and cried some more and almost fainted. I tried convincing myself that it was just a dream so I closed
my eyes just to open it back up knowing that it was actually reality.
At that very moment I felt my heart break, it torn in two, one side filled with so much damn heartache and the other died
with you.
I stayed up all night that night crying softly as to not wake the kids lying alongside of me. Every cry sent another stab
of pain through my fragmented heart.
You know it's so crazy how one day you can wake up and your whole life can change unexpectedly. You don't know how
your gonna deal with it and live life without someone you pictured spending your whole life with yet you learn how to try
and figure it out day by day.
Every night I lie awake with tears upon my cheeks knowing that I will never fall asleep or wake up to you besides me ever
again. It's unbearable knowing that I will never see your face, hear your voice or feel your touch.
I have so much hatred and hurt in my heart to where I don't know how to think or feel. No matter what we went through, the
petty arguments and the feeling that no one loved or cared about you, I did. I always loved you whether it was near or
far. No matter how hard or hurt I was I never ever gave up on you baby I still stuck around and fought for us because I
knew, and you knew that what we had was something special.
Looking back ten yrs ago... man I remember all the times I would just run from you or didn't wanna give u the time of day.
You showed up everywhere you knew I was at and I would try to just shake you. You never gave up on me, you chased me til
you got me. You blessed me with a beautiful son who reminds me and the family so much of you. From the way he walks, his
little smirk, the looks he gives us and how much he eats...that's all you.
You fathered and took in Ahmari like he was your own. I felt that you loved him more than Kiyan which was OK because in
your own words you said he taught you how to be a dad. You gave them boys the world, they were your life as you said.
You were my everything Brian, my heart and soul. I gave you my all, did right by you and almost anything you'd ask me to I
would do for you. I never lied to you. I was loyal to you and tried to give you my all, and the
thought of cheating or messing around on you never crossed my mind. I always kept the communication open on my end to
assure u that you knew what and where I was at when I wasn't with you or our boys. You were supposed to be the one I'd
spend my life with, 50yrs is what you've asked of me and I was willing to give you that and more.
I cried for you; everything you lost in your life. I cry for the boys. They worshipped you, adored you. Now fatherless with
nothing but memories to think back on, pictures to look back on, and videos of you that make them smile. Without them I
wouldn't know where I would be. They've been keeping me sane reminding me that I have them to look after and take care of
them as their mother and father from this day out.
There's not a day, minute or second that goes by where I don't think of you. I will always cherish all of the moments that
we had together. The pictures of you ill hold close to my heart. You are always in my periphery. Always lingering in the
steps I take and the breath I breathe. I see your face in a hundred different faces and innocent eyes. You will always have
a place in my heart baby and my heart will always beat for you. Life and everything doesn't seem to make much sense and it
doesn't feel complete without you in it. Just know that I will always love you. Forever in my heart, my mind and my soul.
Until we meet again baby, you're now our guardian angel from above.
Love always your wife,
aMANDA
