““I never thought I would be posting rip Betty I’m numb af right now. I could say so much but the most important thing is the last time we talked I told you I love you and you told me you loved me back that’s all that matters to me.

 

“I just look back at how we started off friends in high school to starting something bigger than we all could have can imagined.

“I remember us wrestling before every video and going to mc Donald’s splitting up the money we did have and balling out on the dollar menu me being underage sneaking into clubs and most off all us getting on each other nerves all the time being on the road days at a time working hard towards getting back home so we can shop and blow it all lol even the bad times I cherish it all every moment.

“I knew you were going to have 100 kids lol you always loved kids I knew we were the dancing TLC and destiny child hahaha Yall always use to get mad when I said I was Beyoncé .

“This just doesn’t feel real right now I don’t think it really ever will I cant stop crying just knowing I’ll never be able to talk or see you again.

“In life we always say we’ll wait on the right time to make something right but when is the right time ? Life isn’t guaranteed. Rip Betty I love you Jamie,” read the caption.

Dr stella Ameyo Adadevoh & Dr kent brantlyAn American doctor who contracted the Ebola virus while working in West Africa will be released from an Atlanta hospital on Thursday, officials said. Dr. Kent Brantly, 33, worked with Christian aid organization Samaritan’s Purse in Liberia treating patients with the deadly virus when he fell ill. He and Nancy Writebol, an aid worker who also contracted Ebola while doing missionary work in Liberia, received experimental treatment before being flown to an isolation unit in Emory University Hospital in Atlanta in early August. Brantly was due to make a statement at an 11 a.m. ET news conference. Writebol, 59, is expected to be discharged from the hospital’s isolation unit but it was not immediately clear whether she would also leave the facility.

Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse, said Thursday that he had “marveled at Dr. Brantly’s courageous spirit as he has fought this horrible virus” and thanked staff at the hospital. On Friday, Brantly released a statement asking that people “continue to pray for and bring attention to those suffering in theongoing Ebola crisis in West Africa.” More than 1,300 people have died from the disease in the region, according to the World Health Organization, which has declared the Ebola epidemic a global health emergency.

Sadly, one of Nigeria’s top doctors Dr Stella Ameyo Adadevoh passed away 2 days ago while also treating patients because she couldn’t get any treatment. 2 doctors doing the same job 1 dead 1 saved.

Let’s remember all Ebola sufferers in our prayers, Especially those in Africa, Medical workers …. We hope Africa too soon gets the medicine that is helping others around the world to survive.
