    My thoughts and prayers go out to Vanessa and her family at this very difficult time. Wishing Vanessa strength and much love to get through tonight and I know her Dad would have wanted her to do the show. He was a very proud papa and he will be with her every step of the way. He will live in her and her sister always, and will not be forgotten.
