"I got a hold of voodoo spellcasters,when I had some bad luck thrown my way. I had a consultation with the priest in charge. He casted the Ultimate Jinx & Evil Remover/Curse Killer Spell. My husband left me and I thought I needed the same spell again, but during the consultation the Priest told me to save the money, because he thought that spell wasn't needed again and for me to save my money from getting the same spell... He told me to get the Come To Me, Obstacle Breaker and Love Only Me Spells, with the portions and within 5days my husband returned and with that Love Only Me portion his love for me felt like the day we were married. I had the Miracle Money Spell X 3 (three times) and I came into a nice sum of money. I am so grateful for voodoos spellcasters, to enter my life. I made a video testimony for voodoo spellcasters look on the video section it should be posted: visit the email for similar troubles and get it solved in a moment (voodoospellcast@yahoo. com, Tel: +2347030759636...

I want to say, i congratulate Monica on writing this book. I am her first cousin on her father's side. I didn't know the whole story as to what actually happened in this incident. I was only told a little bit from my family what happened and of course it was a one sided thing. I have never had any hard feelings towards Molly or Monica or Derrick for what happened. I have always loved you guys and always will. I am very proud of you for telling your story. I hope this book will stop the pain and hatred that has torn our family apart for so many years. I can't wait to read the whole story.
Love you always,
your cousin Karen Singleton Brown (Calvin Singleton, Jr.) daughter
