Rest In Peace to my first cousin, my first best friend Alexis Powers. We grew apart but of course the love was always there when we reunited. I’m honestly devastated by the news. I hadn’t seen my cousin in like a year and I hate that it takes death for me to put things into perspective. I put all my time and focus into my personal life and my career. I rarely stop and think about just giving my loved ones a simple call. I wish I could’ve talked to my cousin before she passed. I know she knows how much I love her. Things like this happen and it reminds me how much none of this material shit matters. Love will always matter overall. Love for your family, friends and simply love of life. To be able to wake up every morning and be alive. I’ll miss my cousin so much. Please keep my uncle, auntie and cousins in your prayers. 🙏🏿❤️👼🏿
