  1. Fam…I had no idea #72 had happened. I can’t wait for the day you cross that off because you are a strong dedicated female leader. I know you can beat it and that it will never keep you from doing what you want to do in life. Hope to see u soon. I pray that you will continue to live life to its fullest and that #72 will not win. Stay Strong. Stay positive.
