"Losing a child Uncle Tony ain't no child’s play. Nothing seems to matter anymore because because of this oozing sore in your heart. Your son Kiernan would have loved to be strong for him because you honestly have a lot to live for. You were robbed of enjoying the labour of your son but do not rob yourself of getting justice for Kiernan. Every bad did has its own repercussions and consequences. It’s tough, I know✝️. Hang in there Uncle Tony and I see Aunty Lynn looks so distraught too. If a had a magic potion for you guys I would rewind the time honestly to avoid this pain . We love you guys and let him shine for you Uncle Tony."
