The last I saw you, we did Gospel Classics Together, singing your heart out for the Lord… a few months ago not speaking after a while you dropped me a text to check in on me… because kindred spirits always check on each other. To be told you are no longer…. I asked God WHY…but had to stop myself from the unanswered. Those deep tour bus conversations we’d get into when you had your corner in the back seat & hardly spoke to many will remain an enlightenment to the soul. You always spoke with the depth of a gifted… a language not many can grasp but for those who know got it. Music was food to your soul & meaningful things were what made the gravitation to you easy. I’d get mad because you’d talk crap to me but you meant well as a spirit guide. Thank you for encouraging me when you know the gifted are the most haunted…. I didn’t fly on that private jet I said I would… but I’m sure from the heavens you will make it a reality as an angel right next to God. Thank you Dumi for coming full circle spirit child….you’re getting angel status bud. Peace God. ?? #RIPDumiMasilela @dmasilela #BeautifulSoul
