“You were so loved by everyone Isaiah.

“Big thank you to all the messages we’ve all received and all the support off everyone so far, it’s so satisfying and relieving to know that he touched so many people’s lives and that so many people genuinely love him and feel the same heartache as his close family do.

“Tonight was my first ever night without you on this earth with me, we grew in the womb together bro, you’ll always be a part of me. I love you.”
