The father of my kids and I were together for 5 years. He was very funny and we always had a great time together. He was basically "the life of the party". I never knew what I thought would last forever would end so soon. I thought we would grow old together. We started our family very young. We welcomed our first born,  Josiah, who is currently three years old. He brought so much joy to our lives. We had our ups and downs, but it was nothing that we couldn't get through. Our bond was very strong, and we would never allow ourselves to go to bed angry. I never loved anyone as much as I loved him and our son.






On June 11, 2017, the day he passed, a part of my heart left with him.  He was shot and killed in a freak accident.

The day he died he told us twice that he loved us, and it's one of the things that has kept me sane.

My whole world changed when he left us, and all I could think about was that my kids has to grow up without a father.







He was a loving and sweet person, who had a passion for music. He would always talk about pursuing a career as a producer/rapper. I always encouraged him to follow his heart.

I am now pregnant with our daughter who will be here September 11th. It will be exactly three months after he has passed. When we found out it was a girl, he was ecstatic.


I know when our daughter is born, it will be one of the hardest days of my life, because he will not be able to stand on the side of me, as I give birth. It will also be rough in the hospital because I will remember, how he never left my side when our son was born. I know that spiritually he will still be there.

As our kids grow older, I will tell them everything I know about their father.  I will explain to my daughter that the good Lord needed him more than us, just as I explained to my son.

He pushed me through this pregnancy , especially when I was having difficult times. I know he is looking down on us smiling.





It is not easy to lose someone that has always been by your side. It is also not going to be easy being a single parent. I advise everyone to love and appreciate your love ones while they're still here on Earth. Make sure you live, laugh, and love because you will miss what you had when it is gone.
