You’re with the angels now mama 👼🏾 We’ve had all of our last conversations and as I watched you breathe some of your last breaths , the extraordinary, calm peace and acceptance in the realization that you were transitioning before our very eyes gave us on more moment or two to connect even if you no longer used words. Thank you for pouring into me all the beauty that is you. You’re at peace now.

53 year old Malik Yoba is the 4th of six children born to Mahmoudah Young and Abdullah Yoba in the Bronx, New York.
