Thank you for your prayers and kind words we family members are struggling to come to terms with Andre murder, life will never be the same Andre brought a lasting presence into our lives, his aura had people gravitate towards him naturally.
Easy to say don’t let anger consume one, however, my sister is left without her son,
his children without a father, his sisters without a brother, aunties/uncle without a nephew, cousins without their cousin, his circle without a real friend.
God collects our tears so there must be a Ocean like the pacific just for you my nephew because our hearts are heavy, God comforts those that mourn , an I find some peace when I have evil thoughts feel anger towards these murdering …. God said let vengeance be mine, so I really pray Justice prevails
