It's always sad to hear of a young child that has lost a close parent. Her mother was a beautifulwoman to, she appeared in the lip gloss video. Lil Mamma's family is in my prayers. R.I.P Tyra Kirklan, you are God's Angel now.

I was listening to the 97.9 the box this morning and Nnette said that this amongst other rumors about deaths this weekend was false. I don't want to think my girl is slipping, but if just in case she wrong, my condolences go out to the family.

Is this really true??? It was just all over the radio last week that Soulja Boy's mother was killed in a car wreck and he released a statement thanking everyone for the support, clearing the air saying it never happened, and expressing the frustration with a hurtful rumor like that saying it almost gave him a heart attack hearing that away from home on tour. If this is true, condolensces to Lil Mama and family.

Death is never a welcomed guest, expected or unexpected and even worse when its approaching such a family oriented time as Christmas. Now every Christmas thereafter they will hv that memory of her passing as well. :-( Be strong in your loss lil ma.

I'm so sorry,My own mother passed away due to cancer on March 26th of this year and I still haven't packed her things.I'm still not ready. I understand,remember to pray and know that her suffering has ended. Don't expect to feel like yourself anytime soon,give yourself time to make peace with it-however long it takes.Much love.
