Valeri will always be in my heart and have a special place in my heart, I will never forget her and how smart and cute she was I was with her at APA but I will never forget the time we spent together she was one of my best friends and it tore my heart to pieces when I found out she had passed away 😭I am still heartbroken about this all for the past few days it’s all that’s been on my mind is her. I wish we could bring her back. I wish the best to the family my thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I know I don’t know you much but we are all brothers in Christ and I love you ❤️. May the peace of God fill your lives and help you with what you’re going through.
