“The STRONG one always gives advice and help them try to solve them. Has anyone thought about how the STRONG one really feel, Cause at the end of the day the STRONG one is supposed to be the “STRONG” one for real!?!

I said all of that to say, when someone commits suicide, the first question is “WHY”, Do u think the person’s first thought or first solution was to DIE? Then u ask, well why didn’t they talk to somebody or they could have come to me…….

In memory of my cousin Pedie King 😭😭💔 U will definitely be missed! Please pray for his immediate family and the rest of us who are heartbroken 💔 😪😪”

He and his family were regular customers of mine at the Hickory Tavern years ago. My heart is broken for his family right now. Please say a special prayer for comfort and peace today for Kerri and the family.”
