Another Brother Speaks

No Malice also took the time to post a picture of his mother and father. This is the only post on his Instagram. The post also included sentimental words.

“You told me Psalm 34:19 was your favorite verse. Right now, I clutch it with both hands. We all love you dad. You were everything a father is supposed to be. ‘Many are the afflictions of the righteous: But the LORD delivereth him out of them ALL.’ Psalm 34:19 KJV #TogetherAgain #Jesus #Salvation.”

Mildred Thornton, the mother of Pusha T and Malice, passed away just 4 months before their father. Losing one parent is hard enough but losing both parents months apart makes the loses that much more difficult to deal with.

My deepest condolences goes out to the family and I pray for their strength through this difficult time.
