    If you’ve lost a parent- you know this cuts deep, but in the best way. I never comment on YT videos, but want to take the time to send love to anyone that can relate to this video & if William & his family happen to see this, I hope they know I’m sending love too & will be tuning in solely for him & this journey. What an incredible way to honor his father. I know he’s gotta be proud ❤
