Juice WRLD’s mom shares a letter to her son celebrating his birthday The late Juice WRLD would have been 23 on Thursday, and his mother wrote a special letter to her son to celebrate his memory. Carmela Wallace said, “When you were born 23 years ago, I never expected that you would not be here today celebrating your birthday.” She continued, “Although it has been nearly two years since you’ve been gone, I still think about you every day, and losing you has changed my life forever. I’m glad that we always made sure that we said goodbye when we left each other because we didn’t know when we would see each other again.” Ms. Wallace added, “You touched the world through your music with honesty and transparency. You shared a message of healing and sincerely desired to make a difference in the lives of others. I still receive messages from fans saying how your music helped them with anxiety and depression. I promise to continue your message of healing and use Live Free 999 as an avenue to normalize the conversation around mental health and substance dependency and help those who suffer in silence.” Juice WRLD’s new album, Fighting Demons, drops on December 10.
