Well it’s been quite some time, I’m 42 now and it’s crazy to think you died so young. I always wanted to know if I was like you, but now I know I probably am because I’m not like mom. Lol. You have 3 grandkids total, Maurice who is 23, Alexandria who is 18 and Chamille who is 14. They’re all over achievers and doing great. I will always miss you ❤️
