Liz MOCHA Burno was the light in the dark, the calm during the storm, the breeze in the
springtime, the wisdom of knowledge. The beat that drops on the one.
She held no punches and when they were reserved, it was for her
not you. True definition of the little girl that grew up to be that one she saw in her future mirror.
Anything else to know about her …. Refer to PHENOMENAL WOMAN by Maya Angelou.
Much appreciation to everyone who was able and unable to be a part of her Life Celebration.
Thank You so much to all the BMMC, for all of what ya’ll have done for the family during this time representing MOCHA .
