Having lost our daughter, last August, I know of the hurt you are feeling. God doesn’t give us more than we can carry, but it does feel like it sometimes. But when it gets to heavy, his arms are there to carry you as well as the burden. Praying for y’all. 🙏🙏🙏— John Croix (@E8ret) March 12, 2019

You are the greatest and strongest puncher in boxing history , you’ll stay strong during this difficult time.
Wish you good health.
We can’t imagine how heartbreaking it was for George Foreman to share this tribute in memory of his daughter, knowing he will never hug her again.
Stay strong, George! We keep praying for your family.
