Truly, appreciate all the good people you made me cross paths with (my family, friends, strangers turned friends and my online fam). I cannot begin to list names cos it is endless but I want y’al to know that I will forever remain thankful for the incredible level of love and support showered upon me and my family in our most difficult times.

I pray that God in His infinite mercy and goodness will bless us all and shield us under His constant love. Afflictions shall never rise in our homes in Jesus name.”
