I can’t sit here and lie and say we were close like brothers. What I will say is every time I encountered you we had good conversations and I never personally had an issue with you. NOBODY DESERVES DEATH. I’m posting this post because I just remembered your last words you said to me when I saw you last “Hold it down bruh”. I didn’t know I would have to hold it down this way. God works in crazy ways but I’m here to be the man for your son to look up to and call whenever he needs me ! #RIPSutton @angelasimmons I GOT YOU.
