Keyshia Cole took to Instagram to pay tribute to her father by sharing a beautiful photo of them dancing together along with the caption:
Unfortunately my father didn’t make it through his complications, due to covid-19
So here we are💔💔
He’s the entire reason my last name is COLE,
The only father I knew, he did such a great job here on earth!!!!!
He made sure (Even tho he wasn’t my biological father) to keep a stable foundation and roof over all of our heads during our upbringing!!!!
Working for @rideact for over 30 years
My child hood was filled with 40L and 52L rides along side my father!!! I loved having a bus pass until I was 18 years old. He was a very wise man.
Taught me and my siblings that knowledge is power!! He was very dedicated to learning and sharing his strong thoughts and opinions on the Bible and religion, and
His loving passion for Yahweh Elohim🙏🏽 with also
Our many long talks of love and how a man needs to treat a woman
Maybe the reason a man hasn’t been able to hold on to me too long, (LOL) (JK) (But serious)
He was the greatest example of love, 51 years of marriage to my mother Yvonne Cole
Seriously the most loving guy I’ve ever known. And he’s gonna be missed so much! I hate that this has happened !!!
And that I’ve now lost two beautiful souls within a few months from each other. 💔💜
