Who was your first support?

Last updated: May 2021

My Grandmother and Mommie was my first support system, and then my oldest brother, and later down the line my sister friend Rae Lewis Thornton was there to support me, as well.

Now, I have A Sunshine Tribe. When the cards are stacked against you, a strong support system is everything ❤. That's why I try to do what I can to support others because I knew someone was there for me.
