Sweetie Pies Grandson, Andre Montgomery Jr. Funeral

Sweetie Pie's grandson, Andre Montgomery Jr.'s funeral took place on March 26, 2016.  If you've been watching any shows on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) you've definitely seen the commercials for Welcome to Sweetie Pie's seventh season.  Andre was found dead on March 14, 2016 in St. Louis, Missouri.


Welcome to Sweetie Pie's premiered on OWN in 2011.  Andre made multiple appearance on the series.  Andre's grandmother, Robbie Montgomery explains that the murder of her grandson was planned.  Andre was at a friend's house, recording a song, when he received a phone call.  The person on the phone advised him to come outside.

Andre's father, Andre Montgomery, Sr., was Robbie Montgomery's son, who died in 1996.  The video below shows Andre and his grandmother bringing flowers to Andre Sr.'s grave:


Robbie was one of the original Ikettes, affording her family a comfortable lifestyle.  She explains that Andre, Sr. didn't like her family's lifestyle.  He wanted to live in the fast lane.

Similar to Andre, Jr., Andre, Sr. lived the street life and ended up getting in a fight with two brothers.  One of the brothers hit him in the head with a baseball bat and the other one stabbed him to death.

Robbie Montgomery has lived a very difficult life considering the death of her son and grandson.  They are gone but not forgotten.  We love you Robbie.

Perhaps the stars, in the sky are loved one letting us know they are near, by guiding us through the night.
