The candid TikTok video was uploaded in response to a supporter's comment on a previous video compilation of Willingham, stating: "Tammy, Jesus will be with you every step of the way, holding you tight through this difficult time [you're] going through. Be strong."
"Sandra, your comment is why I’m making this post. It touched my heart," Slaton sweetly stated to her fan.
"I’m aware he’s looking down on me. He’s not in any pain anymore. I know he’s in a better place. Again, thank you all and I love you all from the bottom of my heart. And believe it or not, he really loved you all too," the TLC star concluded.
Slaton sorrowfully captioned the post: "I’m sorry I’m crying but just because I’m crying doesn’t mean I’m not strong I’ve got this #familystrongforcaleb."
