Not just because of how you saved your son, also because of the barriers you knocked down for so many people to make them feel confident in themselves and to stand tall and be proud when they couldn’t achieve that on their own. I appreciate and cherish everything that ever happened between us for making me wiser and a better person.”
Big Sean also admitted that he was still coming to terms with the loss of Rivera. He said, “I’m still grieving and in shock, I can’t believe this is real. I’m praying for you and your family.”
