    My brother, I miss you dearly. I need you daily. You sent me a video of "3 little birds" during "COVID" to calm me & I'm sending it back on the wings of 🕊️. I know you will not get it as our religion teaches us when we die we know nothing & are waiting till the Lord comes but it makes me feel better anyways. I sorely miss you & pray for your soul. I love you my big brother. Your little sis Donna
