“I JUST WANNA THANK EVERYBODY WHO PRAYED AND SENT THEIR SINCERE CONCERNS FOR ME AND MY MOM, SHE WAS FINALLY LAID TO REST AMONGST ALL THE CHAOS, YOUR KIND WORDS AND THOUGHTS HAVE REALLY HELPED ME HEAL FASTER. ALTHOUGH I WILL HAVE A LONG ROAD OF PHYSICAL THERAPY AHEAD OF ME, I WILL BE EVEN STRONGER. GOD IS GREAT AND THE DEVIL IS A LIE.”
