“Oh God, my big brother, bros eee. Ahhh seeing you in that casket, watching you being lowered into the ground was super heart breaking for me.
The last thing I ever imagined to happen this year,” she wrote in pidgin English.
“I finally freaked out as they started covering you up with sand and cement and the tears wouldn’t stop.
Kept calling you, kept thanking you.
The last time I felt this kinda mad pain was when I lost my dad.”
