    To Destiny’s family and friends. May God grant you peace and strength through out the days, weeks and months to come.
    May her sweet memories carry you now and know that no one can take those memories away that in itself is precious. Destiny will be missed here at Donna J. Beasley Technical Academy. There was something about Destiny when she smiled she had a glow to her face even though she may have had a good or bad day you knew she was special.
