It’s with a heavy heart and profound sadness that I inform my Facebook family that my big sister Lataysha Richardson has left us physically on this earth. She taught me how to fight, literally making me fight bullies who picked on me. She taught me courage through her example by how she fought through pain and illness all her life. I wouldn’t be who I am without her. I’m proud to be her brother. The staff at UC Health couldn’t have been more helpful. We are asking for your prayers and support in the coming days, especially for my parents. I’m glad she is no longer pain and I will see you in the sprit big sis.
