Difficult to “like” this. My heart goes out to all the souls who are torn apart by the heartbreaking loss of family members and friends. I wish this hadn’t happened. I wish that no one should have to go through this. I am so sorry for the loss that so many are having to endure right now. Please accept my deepest sympathy and condolences. Amen. 🙏 Peace be with you.

My condolences to every family that lost their loved ones.I pray God’s strength and comfort to those whose hearts are bleeding. And I pray with time healing comes to these hurting families and friends. I pray God strengthen all the staff at funeral homes who are over whelmed and give them continued courage to perform their assignments. Blessings over all the healthcare workers who have fought to save those lives and they didn’t make it. I know that’s got to be hard. Peace, love, blessings and comfort to everyone. May their souls Rest In Peace.

This sheds a big light on the health issues my people face. Many of them self inflicted...we have to change our diets and our lives holistically. We eat crap and majority of our families are highly toxic and dysfunctional. Creating a hotbed for disease. When the CD said this would affect those with pre-existing health conditions I knew we'd be severely affected by this pandemic.
