He remarked: "It’s a real sick feeling but like, I’m heartbroken in so many ways because he went back home to Alabama not so long ago and uh he called me a couple days in a row and was asking you know if he could come back to Louisiana.” In the past few months, we have also received news of many social media influencers and celebs dying.
