    My Bit One this is Bit Two this will be my last transmission… 💔😭 I do it with such a heavy heart , remembering all the good times & memories we spent together laughing. Working together side by side making out the entire East Coast electricity with a 12 amp vacuum cleaner lol 😂 which we did! To late night synchronize swimming 🏊 routines in the pool. Our casino comp rooms where we got our Bit nicknames of just a little bit more spending some of the best times of my life with you. Take advantage of the amenities because the gambling was going nowhere was our motto! I will Miss You Soooo Much ! 😭💔

    The only thing that I can hang onto and gives me some peace is that you are not in pain anymore my dearest friend…. Fly High Among The Stars My Angel 🙏

    I know you did your fashion runway walk down the pearly gates✨💐
