    Anna and Wesley. Our love and prayers I send to you during this time. Anna I know your heart and know you are feeling such sorrow right now. Know that your dad has been reunited with your mom and standing in the light of Jesus Christ. He is kicking his heels and hugging your mom. Death is hard but know you will see them again. I love you girl like my own blood. Call me I’m here and see you Friday. 🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️❤️
