Tohme says the Estate isn't giving him credit for turning over $5.5 mi...

About Me


Rhonda It really isn't about me. It is about spreading the message and love that Michael has for our planet and the children. It is not about believer or non believer. It should never be that way in the first place. Our attention and energy need to be focused on how we can get this planet back together and unite each other and some how bring love back into the world and save our children from a horrible future. Much Love
