During my first tour of the states, I was terrified. Daffney made everyone feel loved, welcomed and was such a truly beautiful soul ?
To anyone struggling, you are not alone. You are loved. Check in with your loved ones.

My heart hurts. Daffney was a beautiful person. I'll always remember her infectious laughter and voice, and the way she beamed when she entered the room and much more

#MentalHealthMatters because we all go through our own form of feeling alone, sad, depressed or afraid at times. #MentalHealthAwareness is sharing. Sharing because sharing can save lives. It’s saved my own as well as others around me. You’re not alone, I promise. RIP Daffney. ?
