When I was a kid, you always told me that you would be remembered for all of the kind things you did for others, and that your work, was God’s work! Thank you for inspiring me to continue your LEGACY of being the GREATEST version of myself, while uplifting others along the way! So proud to share your DNA. Keep shining your light on us because we need it now more than ever!❤️," she wrote.
