Just taking a moment to appreciate someone very special to me Raquell Rose Brown.”

“This day marks our one year anniversary our day of romance there’s no better Valentine’s day than one spent with that special someone who fills your heart with love and soul with joy (a gift from God) we’ve laughed, cried, fought, and loved together. With a little luck, a lot of faith, some patience and a dash of teamwork, we’ll grow old together loving each other a little more everyday.”
