    I’m so sorry we only got to meet one time. I’m also sorry our father was a bad man and didn’t tell any of us that we had siblings. I grew up as an only child so learning I had brothers and a sister put a lot of love into my heart for y’all! I only wish we had more time, Bro. U didn’t even get to my my babygirl! ?? I’m so sorry.
    Much love,
    Your sister,
