OMG!! So sad!

My prayers sent out to Usher and Family.

that’s terrible!
i’m praying for him and his family.

I cared for Usher’s father at an Okc hospital several years ago. He was not a well man and to my understanding they were not speaking back then. Hopefully they reconciled at some point.

I hope they came to a place of peace in their relationship.

rest in peace !
