I'm completely and utterly in shock by your passing my friend. The last time we spoke, we shared good laughs and good memories. We talked about working together to create some great art and I even got to tell you how much I admired you. What I'll remember most about you is our conversation about faith and the love of Christ. I appreciated being able to share encouragement with you about life and your journey. You were a good and faithful servant to the Lord and you did well. #RestinHeaven my friend. "JT" will always keep you in his heart "Krimmie."

I can't even fathom the possibility of why some one would ever try to hurt this wonderful soul... A talent, a voice that needs to be heard and embraced acrossed this world... I was lucky enough to hear and listen and meet her ... I'm praying for her recovery and I'm asking you all to do the same ... @therealgrimmie
