Savoe, I loved you the first moment I saw the video you made in rememberance of my deceased nephew, which was your friend and big brother💔💯..The video was so professionally done and so heart felt! Your gifted voice and your handsome swag was surely that of the next up and coming Music artist!!! But when I finally met you in person at my nephew's funeral service, I immediately experienced a special heart felt and qeniune connection which was that of a mother and son❤. Since then, I referred to you as my son! You had such a kind and gentle but sincere spirit. AIthough it was only for a short while,
I am so thankful and grateful that God brought you into my family's life. You made such a positive, loving and lasting impact with Courtney (my niece) so much that she claimed you as her for real nephew!💯 You will always be forever loved, remembered, and missed by us all!💝🖤
Rest in peace Savoe with God and his angels and all of your loved ones who left before you🙏
Love you always Son,
