“One of the most sincere mothers I’ve ever known…….. Your son was on your mind and prayers everyday thank you for giving birth to Hip Hop thank you everything you stood for……. You embraced me and my daughter – sending love to my sisters and family I’m in the Middle East Qatar and my heart hurts from here.”
