During the Welcome to Sweetie Pie's reunion special, host Kym Whitley asks Miss Robbie and the family about Andre and the other male relatives who have tragically died from gun violence. Everyone gets emotional as they recall the circumstances of Andre's death, along with that of Aaron, Linda's son and Monique's brother. "Andre was somebody that I wanted to take under my wing," Miss Robbie says through tears. "I really wanted him to go back home because St. Louis is a city where black men are killing each other. And he came back, and then was there, like, four or five days and got killed. So, that's heartbreaking."

Here, the family opens up about why their community has experienced so much loss—and offers up a message to those who "live by the gun."
