Happy Feelings/BLOG

lilcreeHey Family!! 🙂

So yesterday I went to the Home going Services of my friends mom. She lived a long time ( 79) and was the sweetest person you could ever meet. I’ve been knowing this family for over 20 years. And when I say this lady could make some mustard greens and potato salad…. ooooo weeee. The last time I saw her was when I took her and my mom to the movies. She will truly be missed.

To be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord. One of my favorite Scriptures.

 Tonight I talked to my gurl about doing ANOTHER Valentines for the Homeless Sunday February 14, 2016. We are so excited about this project because since we both live in apartments, we don’t have the space to make all of the 150 dinners for Thanksgiving. People have been calling me, texting and inboxing me about it. I felt so bad because we had been doing this for years. But on Valentines Day, I’m going to make it happen. We’re packing toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, face towels, gloves,  hats, scarfs, socks, deodorant and this time FOOD. We will be putting together a nice hot meal for 50-75 Homeless people Downtown Detroit. I’ll keep you all updated and maybe you can put together something in your city. Its easy to plan and the pay off of seeing people enjoy Valentines Day with gifts and food is a wonderful feeling. Amen!


IMG_0784I’m still trying to help my BRIDE find her a outside venue for July. Its so hard, so I had to ask her that question, if push come to shove will she be willing to have a indoor wedding? She said yes, so hopefully after she looks at the one ( outside venue)) next week she can finally come to a conclusion so that we can get this WEDDING STARTED!




Woman Found Stabbed To Death After Posting Facebook Warning, Ex-Boyfriend Arrested

Michelle Rowling; Montrell Cooper

Less than one week after Michelle Rowling, 25, of East Saint Louis, posted a cryptic Facebook status alluding to her death, she was found fatally stabbed in her apartment and her newly paroled ex-boyfriend, Montrell Cooper, 25,  has been arrested in connection with the crime, reports The Belleville News Democrat.

“So, if anything happens to me tonight just let my kids know I loved them dearly and tell my momma I love her,”  Rowling posted on Nov. 25 at 9:49 p.m.

On Dec. 1, East Saint Louis police responded to a disturbance call at approximately 9:00 p.m. and discovered the young mother of two stabbed several times on the floor of her apartment, reports KSDK.com.

She was rushed to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

In response to concerned friends commenting on her Facebook status, Rowling would share no details other than she had received horrible news. That news was that Cooper had been released from jail where he had been serving time since assaulting Rowling in August, said St. Clair County State’s AttorneyBrendan Kelly.

“From what I understand from others in jail with him that was his word, he was going to kill her,” said Rowling’s grandmother Diane Simmons.

The August incident was not Cooper’s first time assaulting Rowling.

In 2012, he served a year in jail for stabbing her in the neck; upon his release, he assaulted her again.

Rowling testified on Cooper’s behalf in the 2012 incident, so he received probation. In a court appearance on Monday, Cooper was released again after Rowling allegedly refused to testify against him.

“We often move forward with charges even when victims are not cooperative, hoping that if they see us standing up for them, they will stand up for themselves,” said Kelly, who had pushed for prison time in both incidents. ”The victim in this case actually testified in favor of the defendant.”

Cooper, who had been on the run in a Black SUV that was later found abandoned, turned himself in to East Saint Louis police Tuesday night and is being held on $200,000 bond.

He has not been charged and is being held on a probation violation.

“We want to question him about the stabbing death of Michelle Rowling,” East St. Louis Police ChiefMichael Floore said.

A candlelight vigil was held on Sunday night for Rowling.

“I don’t know which way to turn,” said her mother Cathy McGloson.

Rowling’s cousin, Danielle Lane, said that Cooper was always “quiet” around their family.  When she spoke to Rowling on Thanksgiving Day she said that she was trying to leave him for good.

“She was happy, but she looked worried,” Lane said. “She told me about the domestic abuse with him. She wanted to be with him, but they weren’t getting along, so she was trying to leave him,” Lane said.

“I didn’t see her for about three weeks. When I saw her, I told her she needed to get out of that relationship because that wasn’t love. I tried to get her to meet up with me and do some things, but she wouldn’t,” Lane said.

“We need to put a stop to women being abused. No matter what your family or friends say or think, speak out. There is always help out there,” Lane said.

Rowling and Cooper have a 5-year-old daughter together, reports CBS News.

According to a recent report by the The Violence Policy Center (VPC) in Washington, D.C. Black women are about three times more likely to die at the hands of a current or ex-boyfriend than members of other races.

  • In 2011, 492 black females were murdered by males at a rate of 2.61 per 100,000, compared to a rate of 0.99 per 100,000 for white females.
  •  Where the relationship could be determined, 94 percent of black females killed by males knew their killers. Nearly 15 times as many black females were murdered by a male they knew than were killed by male strangers.
  • Of the black victims who knew their offenders, 52 percent were wives, common-law wives, ex-wives, or girlfriends of the offenders. Ninety-three percent of the homicides were intra-racial.

Always Ask Questions To Get Your Answers………………… * My Story* Crees Blog Entry

police car
Mon March 3, 2014 .. I called the Police Recovery Station to find out if my van was recovered, when I was told by the Officer that she didn’t see it in the computer she told me to go back to the station where I filed it at, and to take my report with me to find out what happened.
I was heated when I was told to go back to the station. First of all, when I went the first time the Officers were terrible. If the Leaders of the city are like this… imagine the citizens. I have never in my life seen a bunch of NON MOTIVATED people in my life.
I got to the police station and this older, “get with you” kinda thick older black man was at the medal detector booth.. looking at his phone texting somebody.. NEVER LOOKED UP AT ME.. hollering real loud… MAY I HELP YOU.. MAY I HELP YOU?.. SO, I said yesss, I came down here last Tuesday and filled out a report for my Van being missing.. I did it the same day it was stolen, received THIS paper and was told to call to check up on the van. I said well I called this morning, and the lady on the phone told me that there is no report under these numbers I was given. She told me that I would have to go back to where I got the report and talk to them. He said well let me see the paper. I gave it to him, and he said okay let me go to the computer to check it.
He checked it and said in a real LOUD mean voice……. “I DONT SEE WHY SHE TOLD YOU THAT, CAUSE IM LOOKING AT IT RIGHT NOW”.. WHO DID YOU TALK TO MAAM???????? I looked at him, because he was screaming. I said I TALK TO AN OFFICER….. THE PEOPLE WHO ANSWER THE PHONE!!!!!!!!!! He said what’s her name. I SAID I DONT KNOW THE OFFICER NAME WHO ANSWERED THE PHONE. Then as he was looking at it, the way he was staring at the screen, you can tell he was looking at a mistake or something. Being the reason why the OFFICER I spoke with on the phone couldn’t see it in the system. HE KNEW IT.. BUT IT KILLED HIM TO ADMIT that *SUSAN FALLONI* ( The Police Officer who took my report) DIDNT finish it.
As we’re talking, there is this white officer sitting in the further back seat, and to the window…… a black officer kinda young came in with a bag of Burger King or some resturant food. She saw my face while talking to him and was TRYING SO HARD TO BE MY FRIEND, trying to make eye contact with me, because she saw my facial expression, but you can tell that later on she could turn on me, cause of the way me and her PARTNER were talking to each other.
So, he’s explaining to me that Susan’s SUPERVISER would be in later, and that I could talk to her/him because Susan and the supervisor are the only person who can go in and “touch” the report. OKAY I WAS COOL WITH THAT.. He EVEN SAID WE COULD DO IT OVER THE PHONE. THIS Negro GOT MADDDDDDDDDDDDDDD WHEN I SAID THIS… “SO let me ask you this…….is this NORMAL, for a person to come into the police station to FILE A REPORT OF A MISSING VEHCILE, and then have to come back down here because ANOTHER OFFICER OVER THE PHONE CANT FIND IT IN THE SYSTEM? He said maam LISTEN….. IM not authorize to go in and do anything to her report. I SAID OKAY YOU SAID THAT.. I GOT THAT.. IM ASKING YOU… IS THIS NORMAL FOR A PERSON TO HAVE TO COME BACK IN THE STATION TO TALK TO THE SUPERVISORS ABOUT THEIR REPORT??? So now the black lady is staring at ME.. LIKE “NO SHE AINT”… THE WHITE LADY LOOKING TOO… SO… I TOLD THE OFFICER SIR……… I’m DONE TALKING TO YOU! DONE!!! DONE!!! This NEGRO got up and went back to the medal detector desk and sat his a@@ down. He got on the phone…. and continued texting SMH He was glad to be able to go back to what he was doing before I walked in.
So since the black lady was staring wanting to join in on the conversation SO BADLY, I TURNED TO HER and asked….why couldn’t I just called the number they told me to call to check on my van, LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE instead of coming back down here because its not in the system? She was looking at me like THAT AINT MY REPORT!!! I GAVE HER THIS LOOK.. LIKE … THEN WHY THE “FORK” ARE YOU STARING DOWN MY THROAT WHEN YOU DONT/CANT ANSWER MY QUESTION??????????.. If you gon stare at us, with a fry hanging half way out of your mouth… THEN IMMA ASK YOU QUESTIONS TOO.!!! She grabbed her food and drink and took her a@@ to the back. SO QUICK LOL LOL LOL. I WAS DONE WITH HER.. NEVER SEEN HER AGAIN.
The white lady was the only one left in the room, BEFORE she ADMITTED THAT SUSAN FALLONI didn’t finish the report… SHE KEPT SAYING TO ME.. OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER… PEOPLE MAKE MISTAKES, EVERYBODY MAKES MISTAKES… THEN she asked.. don’t you make mistakes on your job? WHICH then I knew I was getting closer to a confession that she knew Susan FALLONI* DIDNT FINISH MY WORK. THEN SHE finally admitted like I WANTED the clown man officer TO DO. She sat there and admitted what I wanted HIM to admit. She was very nice about it, she explained it was a mistake. I was cool with that. All I wanted was for HIM to admit it. And that was the REASON why the OFFICER THIS MORNING COULDNT SEE IT IN HER SYSTEM !!!!!
With everything that I’m going through right now. I don’t have any EXTRA time to deal with foolishness and non motivated people. I’m on the move and when I need to ask questions concerning MY life…. I need them answered. And I want you all who is reading this. Ask QUESTIONS. Never be so geeked on people positions that you’re intimated about what they will or wont do to/for you. I didn’t care that they were officers. So what they didn’t want to answer my DIRECT IN YOUR FACE EYE TO EYE QUESTIONS, for fear of revealing the TRUTH and getting their fellow officer in trouble for not completing my paper work. I cleared that whole front end out, and I didn’t curse, raise my voice, or get physical. All I did was ask questions to get the answers to MY ISSUE.
Refuse to just “go home” without your questions being answered. These people know the answers to what you need to know. Always check your tone of voice, attitude, your facial expression, and never curse when taking care of your business. Be a good listener, and AVOID doing business over the phone as much as possible when it comes to something serious. People will tell you just enough over the phone without telling you everything, just to get to the next call. Speak with people who can help you. Never ever, speak to people who are the first to say “May I help you”? Then after you’ve explained for 10 minutes your story, they say… well I cant help you, you need to talk with “such and such”.
Always approach serious situations like this…. Hello, Yes!!!!! Who can I speak with concerning a incomplete Police Report on my Vehicle that was filed by Officer Susan Falloni? Give direct eye to eye contact. Never ever allow someone to get into a “who did you talk to, what was their name, BACK AND FORTH MATCH with you. That’s time consuming and it doesn’t matter because “THEY” didn’t take care of it when you did speak to them. Be clear, and only ask questions that will get you results. NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER be intimated by ANYONE. This is why people are always asking me to teach them how to get answers. Judgement Day is coming for everybody, never be scared to ask questions about YOUR BUSINESS… to people who are “DOWN HERE ON EARTH” just like you. Look them in the eye, and make sure that you get your business taken care of. Do follow ups. Use words to make them remember you. For example: Hello, My name is LaCrease Walker and I came into The Police Station on THIS PAST MONDAY MARCH 3, just before noon and spoke with YOU about YOUR Officer Susan Falloni WHO DIDNT COMPLETE MY STOLEN VEHICLE POLICE REPORT THAT WAS FILED BY ME. Don’t let them interrupt you when you are saying that sentence straight through. When you don’t say “straight” to the point STATEMENTS like that, they LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, to interrupt you to ask,, when did you call, who did you talk to, what time of day was it, what number did they give you to call? If you allow them to do this to you, it will throw you off your whole call. It will make room for you to forget your questions, and to second guess why you’re even calling. Write down your questions if you have to before you call.  Know what you’re talking about, do research on your business. Speak clearly. And ALWAYS.. ALWAYS…. SPEAK WITH AUTHORITY!!!

Kids….Oh they’re going to get it one way or another…. Cree’s Blog Entry

dont ask for nothingToday as I sat with the Dean of Students who is also a DETROIT POLICE OFFICER * with his fione self* I listened to him speak to two MALE students about growing up. I LOVE when a MAN talk to another MALE STUDENT. They seem to listen and give attention to that kind of authority. They’re so BLESSED to have MEN in position with the MENTALITY to even want to deal with them. Some of them get it, and some don’t. This one gurl told this officer with an attitude … “yall act like yall our parents”. I heard it and said “OH HONEY trust me we’re not your parents…… but WE ARE your uncles and aunts”. She laughed, BUT she got the point. 

I don’t think they understand… most of us have children who are grown and doing well. I told this one student…. “gurl this job didn’t knock on our door and ask us to work”…. WE APPLIED TO THIS JOB… which means we want to see you do good, we want to be apart of your growth, we want to work here. I said…. I could be at home right now sitting on the couch, painting my nails and eating steaks. I told her “We are NOT your enemy”. They laugh at my examples, but they love them, because they get it. When I speak… I make them see a MENTAL VISUAL PICTURE/MOVIE in their minds of what I’m saying. That’s the only way they are going to get it, is by visualizing my words… and that’s why I’m so good at what I do. 

I was talking to one of the male students yesterday about how many times do we have to keep telling him to go to class!! I said if Dr. King ( Principal) have to keep telling me over and over and over again to do something….. I said I’ll grab my keys and leave. I told him I would never want to be told something over and over again. I asked him…. what do you like about us telling you to go to class every hour…. don’t you get tired of hearing that? MY GOODNESS!!! 

When I was growing up… my momma told us ONE time…. go and wash dishes. You didn’t sit there until your favorite part went off on the TV… you got your but up and washed those dishes. My momma had this look, and you knew what it meant. My daddy did too. They were parents who backed each other up, and not tried to be “friends” with us. You didn’t play one against the other…..that was a whopping itself. Back then you didn’t want any PROBLEMS with your parents… you were scared of the consequences. 

SOME of These kids these days…. they don’t listen. They don’t care and they’re not scared of anyone or anything. Parents want to be “cool” and be “friends” with their kids. And another thing I learned too is this… and its HUGE. When parents were younger, many of them grew up NOT LIKING AT ALL, that their parents had friends who told them about their kids. So when those kids grew up, they MADE SURE THAT…… YOUR CHILD IS YOUR BUSINESS…. AND MINES IS MY BUSINESS. Those same ones got whopping’s growing up, and said WHEN I HAVE KIDS… THEY WILL NOT GET THEM…. and this is part of the reason why kids are off the hook in 2013. And they’re the ones on the NEWS crying somebody killed their “good child”. 

I’m very proud of Mr. Tyler Perry giving $100.00.00 to a School in Georgia for uniforms. We must set the example of giving. Great Deed. 

Be Blessed

I remember * in my 20’s* Cree’s Blog Entry

ImageI remember standing in the kitchen washing dishes, fed up with the friends I had in my life at that time. I said out loud to God. I want one BFF. He said I’m your BFF… I said I know, but I’m talking about “down here”. Still years later, I felt as if I hurt his feelings, in my 40’s I’m declaring, he’s all I WANT AND EVER NEED. NO NEW FRIENDS!!!! LOL
I remember one night I was mad at my friend who lived downstairs from me because I found out she was sleeping with my daughters dad. So I called over my friends and we had a party!! We made all kinds of loud noises, turned up music, just to get a reaction from her. Well, she end up calling the POLICE on us, but when they knocked on the door. I KNEW THEM BOTH ( their friend was my EX boyfriend a POLICE OFFICER)… and they end up staying over with us. The gurl downstairs was MADDDDDDDDD 🙂
I remember one night, I had been drinking so much, that when I woke up that morning, my LANDLORD was standing over me. I was so drunk that I left my door unlocked he walked in wondering what happened. That changed my life and caused me to be more conscience of how I handle my drinking. I DONT DRINK TO THIS DAY.
I remember when my neighbor who was always borrowing….. knocked on my door and asked for sugar. I told him No, I didn’t have any, Nesha * my daughter* came out of nowhere and said “ma, yes we do its in the cabinet”… I remember staring at her for at least 5 minutes. LOL She never did that again.
I remember the time when me, my sisters and friend went to the movies, it was real dark, but I had to use the bathroom. As I came back, instead of me entering the row to get to my seat with my face facing the people, I entered with my behind facing their face. I made a mistake and stepped on the lady’s toes. She grabbed my waist because my behind was in her face, she opened her mouth to let out a scream but she couldn’t because it hurt so bad. LOL It takes me friend Gloria to talk about that, and to make the facial expression she made.LOL LOL I felt so bad, her and her husband got up and never came back. LOL
I remember I was working at a drug store. I started getting addicted to the MICHIGAN STATE LOTTERY scratch off tickets. I would go in to work everyday NOT PAY for the tickets, and start scratching them off. When I won, I would use that ticket to pay back all the tickets I scratched off. It wasn’t about money for me, I simply got addicted to the scratching. Took me a long time to stop, but in the process I got others addicted, they got caught and FIRED.
I remember loving several men in my life… but I truly LOVED Darrell.
I remember when we use to go to restaurants and we wanted extra on our food. We would get so irritated when they said “its going to be more money is that okay”? We knew extra cost…. MORE MONEY. We didn’t care we just wanted it!!! So one day, we went to get some barbeque, and my friend Gloria told the young man, she wanted extra sauce. He said okay its going to be extra… irritated to the max, she looked at him and said “okay, well give me $4.00 worth”! I was hollering laughing, he kept trying to get her attention to see if she was serious, but she never turned around. He kept looking to me to help him out, because he didn’t know how to measure $4.00 worth of sauce, and was scared he was going to misjudge it, but all I said was…. ” just give it to her”. Whenever we went back, he automatically gave us extra. LOL
I remember me and Gloria * my ride or die* was eating at Big Boys, we were talking having a good time . This older white man was sitting alone behind her. As we were laughing and talking, she heard him say ” Oh shut up and go back where you came from”. I didn’t hear him, but her facial expression changed, so I said “what’s wrong”? She said did you hear the man behind me. I said no, what he say? As she was telling me, he was looking right at me. He started saying any and everything you can think of that was racist. Before I knew it I started nutting up. I never got up, I just started going off, turning into a FULL BLOWN INCREDIBLE HULK!!. So after a while it was over. As we were paying for our food, the Police came in. We both looked around like “dang what happened in here”. What we missed, we were sitting down, we didn’t see anything”. So, we stood around waiting, TOTALLY FORGETTING ABOUT THE BRUSH WITH THE MAN EARLIER. We realized the manager was trying to stall us, Gloria saw him tilt his head to the police as if to say… these are the ladies right here. Just then the POLICE asked us… “what’s going on”. We like huh? Then we figured out that the manager called the POLICE on us. We were so mad and outdone. After we told them what happened, they were like okay….. have a good day ma’am. We TERRORIZED that manager * with eye contact* every time we went in there. LOL
