Anthony 'Bookie' Young was the love and joy of my life for 27 years. Of those years, 22 1/2 I was his wife, soul mate and his personally proclaimed QUEEN. I remember the first day in August 1984 in the old gym at Wenonah that I laid eyes on him and knew that he'd forever be mine. That was true until an awful turn of events resulted in his tragic death on Tuesday, September 27, 2011 in a motorcycle/van collision.

The life that he and I embraced was beautiful. We are the parents of two sons, a perfect blend of us, Anthony and Aaron. All men want a son, and I gave him two of which he loved without a shadow of a doubt. His unique way of parenting has shaped them into highly respectful young men who know from his example what being a MAN - both husband and father resembles.

If love never crosses my path again, I know and knew what true, unconditional, unwavering love was because that's exactly what we created, built and shared for nearly three decades.

He will forever be etched in my heart, spirit and soul.


Forever your QUEEN,

~Mrs. Tracey Green Young
