Kiernan has been securing wins despite being dead as his last project, Mass Country amassed a laudable success.

“As a mother, I believe Kiernan was not of this world. He was bigger than this world. He lived large, loved large and expressed himself … large. I knew my son in life but in death, he is teaching me deeper, more meaningful things about his life and who he really was as a person. Kiernan is written into history. My son is a legend and he will live forever. His legacy will never end,” she said.
