    In Serious Matters Like These Let Not Include Politics. That’s Why We Will Go 2 Hell Because Of A SMALL THING. LET NOT POLITICS LEAD US TO HELL!!!

    I equally tend to wonder what calibre this is where some people could associate a bereavement to politics please come on, a death is death and has no barriers whether one like it or not at one time one will answer t to She call. Remember there is 100 percent probability that all living things will eventually die , regardless of their status.So let’s learn to respect a bereavement. MHSRIP.
