      Ricky don’t pay attention to someone who clearly can be so insensitive and incompassionate at this time. and a complete moron that the response to such a story is about the “street name”

      Prayers for you and your sisters – Your mom was an amazing woman and loved you guys with ever fiber of her being!! And you are right, learned alot from your beautiful mother – Karma will rule.

      Worry about staying strong for yourself and rest of the family!

      God bless you all!
