(SWIPE LEFT to meet the FATHERS!!!)🥰❤️😍 HAPPY FATHER’S DAY 87ers!!! 💚 🌱 Up first, my grandfather Leroy who unfortunately passed away during quarantine. The absolute life of any party. Father daughter dances were our thing, and he kept every secret I had in college from my parents. Lol. He was from New Orleans but he and my grandmother relocated to Georgia with my parents after Hurricane Katrina. I Love you papa. 🌱 Meet my dad!!! He and my mom have been together over 30 years!! 🥰 He always reminds me of just how valuable my existence is. I rarely feel fear because he’s taught me at a young age that it’s man made and doesn’t truly exist. His dad was papa Leroy and together they are a light in any room they step foot in. I Love you dad. 🌱 My brother Shaun!!!! He’s here with my niece Zoey who played DJ at my mom’s surprise Mother’s Day. He’s an engineer and the smartest/most creative guy I know! If I think something is possible, he reminds that it absolutely is. I love you Shaunie. 🌱 Grandpa Brown, pictured with my gorgeous mom 😍🥰. He raised me until I was 12 (I’m from Conway, South Carolina) and I moved to live abroad with my parents. He and his wife, my grandmother are both apart of the reasons I started 1987. Both passed away from health complications. This man was my first love, and I can still hear him calling me from time to time. “TEEESHA!!” Because he never called be LaKeasha my entire life. Lol! 🤷🏾‍♀️ I love you grandpa. 🌱 My father who’s face I absolutely stole!!! 😂😂 We met when I was around 8-9 years old and when I look in the mirror or laugh, it’s his face and chuckle I hear. Fun fact: he has NEVER worked for anyone a day in his life and when I think I can’t….he’s the “You better”. He’s with my step mom Melinda here, by far my favorite nutritionist ❤️. I love you dad. 🌱 #Dad #Support #UnconditionalLove #Proud #Family #FathersDay #FirstLove #heartbeat
