  1. Remember that life is short, that is why we should always tell the people that we love that we love them while they are here. We should always live llife as if this will be our last day on this earth. It is time we as black learn to unite Rev Dr. Martin Luther Knig Jr worked to hard to get us were we are today, so let’s start the year off with more LOVE……..

  2. congratulations and condolences that icon of black music North americanaRenetta ‘Magnolia Shorty my respects on behalf of the Brazilian people and all states of Brazil save!!
    when lil wayne comes to Brazil, we are waiting for your coming to the show in rio de janeiro, sao paulo, brasilia, reef and bahia

  3. I just spoke with a few with Louisiana music industry , possibly 5 years ago in San Antonio. So delightful. In 2010 a few persons possibly at outdoor homeless shelters attempting to volunteer services and help me “get the load off”. There should be no confusion. I spent days away during volunteer services off grounds of the shelter. I noticed it became permanently programming , instead of lightly educational. Medical transition

    Singers , always speak of what I
    ( the person) is doing. All that money. I know it’s been heard head to toe ..body exercise. A loud noise silent..painful. Seek the lost ministry may have communication devices to regulate state interpretation.

    I miss Louisiana, it don’t have to be a mockery. Mixing, backmasking , human trafficking and American slave trade is obvious in Texas, blackmail possibly.

    It is painful, annoying and odd. Hurricane Katrina should have each resident in a legally identified place. What is this place? A wizard of oz..preview dressed up? Who is paying? Billions on hits , beats theft eventually abuse or finalized murder. No real friends, I miss them; voyeurism and idleness could have a peasant or resident believe permanence in ownership. Faked deaths, a murder in progress unfortunately, prisoners priveledged, would like to take your place of Freedom. Some entertainers kill..body snatches. Transition to fake worlds offered to ” others” when you love your people , do not add anything. Educate and work daily to move to healthy residence? Why are you here? Grand Theft and hijacked USA. I was told ” they might keep her locked away, hurry up and get ” that girl” out chains..some people despise Black American women; clans and cults.

    Your life is yours, in the face of cowards and beggar.
    ” stay out my face” my first statement in my apartment , I lived alone in Texas. Vouyers attack.
    Wet and dry.. Help her get residence..Stop embracing acting….fakes!

    More than 50 American influences of life were at the homeless shelters in 2010. I noticed a few words spoken, knew my name. I love you , takes long, I care for you takes longer.

    Get on the phones get them in Louisiana for legal residence and if needed medical assistance.

  4. Buried alive, not yet legally interviewed.

    My mom’s, sarcasm actually owned house of Louisiana investors… Something is attempting to carry out ” as seen on television”…

    How they do that? Optimistically.. You are all over the place.. A- Z.. Not just where you knew. This place will do! Was fed to suck!

    Observers maybe seduced killers, slow kills. Like an ongoing presentation of homes..

    Weird.. I am on the good list, going back to Louisiana, although I am blocked, have to get through dead ends, nothing happens!

    Foul play..and sharing of the body is illegal!

    Please make sure her and all that make Magnolia Shorty comprehend as a child would..symptoms may occur for fans, and the ideology of the term.

    So what did the morgue and coroner’s office communicate of traumatic experiences of everyone. Are you sure she wasn’t called to that place, the head master goes. Pied piper and witchcraft, she may have said there is a duplicated environment.

    Did not hear or doesn’t care.

    Best teams and attorney.
