Today We lost a solider…. But I know you’ll be forever watching over… Rest in PEace to my big cuz/pro/brother/manager/guardian/angel. No one will ever take your place and I promise we gonna keep pushing way stronger in honor of you…. No one will ever understand how much of a selfless and loyal person you was. In this last year I don’t know what I would of done without you.. You saved me bro just when I thought I couldn’t go any longer u came into the picture and shifted my entire drive. Never have I’ve known someone so inspired to work and help their fellow peers. It’s kinda hard writing this without crying, I’m so torn apart… But I know no matter what you would just want to see us win. #b4damoney wouldn’t have been the same without you involved.. I’m forever changed but thank you for blessing us with your heavenly gift and may your soul rest in peace… To my big cuz Junior…
