He passed away Saturday night.
Something that we are all having a hard time coping and understanding why it happened.
He was so young.
He was our David.
Stubborn, loving, kind, and so forgiving.
Most of you knew him.
He was a strong man. He never gave up. He loved his family. He loved his close friends.
He passed away. And no one expect it. We can't fathom the situation.
There are many things that can be said about my brother. Many things. Because he was wonderful.
We ask for your help. Even though we never thought we would.
At least not for him.
We are trying to cover funeral cost.
Anything that can be spared would be a huge help.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
I have been avoiding the hurt I will feel writing this update.
I have been avoiding the shattering noise my heart does every time I think about this..
but I must do this, I have to do this because unfortunately as if our hearts can not take any more pain. More obstacles have been presented to us.
But first I need to tell you all why I am writing this.
As you all know, my little brother David passed away. I want to to tell you all how. Most of you already know, but I will say it anyway. My brother was killed. He was killed by our older brother. He was stabbed in the chest after an altercation began in the apartment he lived in with my mom and sister (as well as my sisters family). My mom and sister were on their way home from the hospital ( my sister was in the hospital because she is pregnant and has gallstone) when this happened. My mom and brother in law were the first to get there. Now these details of what happened are not mine to tell so I won't but I will say this, a mother should not watching her son die. Not the son she carried and birthed. Not the son she raised on her own. Not the son that she worried for and prayed over for so long. No mother should watch their child die.
He was pronounced dead at the hospital. He bleed to death from his wound. My baby brother died. He died and I didn't get to say goodbye because to didn't make it to the hospital in time.
....So now we are here trying to raise money for the funeral. But as I said before we come across another obstacle.
My mom and sister (and her family) got evicted from their home.
Because that's where my brother was killed. She was only given 24hrs to leave her home.
But now as if the pain wasn't enough, the worry of finding new home has been presented to them.
My family is hurting. We are still mourning the loss of our David. All we want in right now is to have solace and peace of mind that my brother is with God. That he smiling down upon us. That he has found comfort that we are here telling him how much he was loved by so many people.
So we ask for your help once again, whatever can be spared.
And nothing can be spared please share this story for more people to see. We need the help.
Hospitals bills will be pouring in soon, and now my mom needs to find a new home... we need everyone's help. Anyone who can spare or take a second to share this.
We are extremely grateful for those that have already donated and those that have given their condolences to our family. Our hearts hurt but you all bring us some peace in these troubling times. Thank you all for taking the time to read this.
