      i really don’t know what this world has come to. look at this beautiful young girl Phylicia?
      i have been seeing more cases as hers, i find it very sickening and scarey.
      how sick and depraved can one be to hurt a baby like Phylicia or anyone else?
      God Bless her and her family!

      Predators are everywhere. It’s sickening what society has become. You just don’t feel safe anymore when you have sicko’s just looking for their next victim.

      What a sad society we have become.

      R.I.P. beautiful girl.

      Prayers to the family & friends

      I will keep the family in my prayers, Earth has no sorry that Heaven can not heal. God is going to take you through this time of trouble, we realize that trouble do not last always, weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning. Your baby is resting in peace where there are no more predators, and people that do not have a heart for others. God bless and may Heaven smile upon the Barnes family.
