“Everything happens for a reason. I was dying when I met u at this very spot. U refused to let me die,” Lil Wayne – real name Dwayne Carter – captioned an Instagram post that included a photo of Hoobler yesterday (July 25).

“Everything that doesn’t happen, doesn’t happen for a reason. That reason being you and faith. RIP uncle Bob. Aunt Kathie been waiting for u. I’ll love & miss u both and live for us all,” he concluded.
