I feel as though I have lost a brother because this "Royal" family has been a part of our family. Just know that God does not make mistakes and that "Boone" is resting in a better place. GOD promise us to be a comforter to us and that we must lean and depend upon HIM. GOD loves each one of you and so do I.
