One of the greatest spirits I have ever known is gone. Please pray for her family and for her. RIP Avalanna. I love you.” He then followed it up by posting a picture of the two of them together from his visit, calling her his “angel”, and then promised that, in memory of her, he was going to “make the most of everyday”.
