    If she says she a Smyre then she’s family. It suppose to be Family Over Everything no matter what so everybody come together as one in Jesus Mighty Name. I pray for strength —Lord God wrap your arms around my family, the loved ones, her Mother and not only her but her child. God, oh lord, I was the same age as her son when I lost my father. So God allow everyone to step up and come together in honor of this beautiful young lady, my little cousin Tye. So sad. Nobody deserves this, but we give it to God. I know it’s a lot of hurt so let these women of our family join together to fill her son’s heart and the immediate family with nothing but LOVE because my soul hurts. Today, Lord, Help the Smyre Family. We done lost three in a roll. This should be an eye-opener right here … FAMILY SHOULD COME TOGETHER & PRAY & LOVE ONE ANOTHER 💜💙❤🧡💛💚🙏 Rest In Paradise, babygirl.
