    Black Ancestors : RIP - Keita Otiba Kenyatta (08.13.1956 - 02.06.2015)

    No, Destee, I didnt speak of her before. But my heart and prayers go out for the child now just as I prayed for her when Queen passed. It's a hard thing to lose both parents so young and so close together. God bless and keep her.
