Victor's Home going

October 3, 2018 it felt like a regular day, I was just thinking that October 2nd was my fathers 6 yr anniversary and I was like wow man its been 6 years since you left old man. I looked at the clock at work and it was 2:07pm and I was like I'll go home early, but then I said no I'll stay till 3pm. I left work  and ran an errand. I almost always go straight home from work so I'm going about my day thinking Victor's going to need his truck soon. Soon enough my daughter in-law calls for the baby car seat at 3:23, she hot off early. I was in route home but had to take the streets  because of traffic. I get home at 3:44 and she was already waiting outside.  So I go upstairs to check on the Victor and he was just lying on the pallet that he made for his daughter to crawl on. I'm like why is he still sleep? But he looked dead. I went over and called his name...nothing, I looked at his stomach to see if he was breathing....nothing, I moved his arm and it was limp, I turned him over he wasn't breathing I immediately started CPR and called 911.  I tried everything in my power to bring my baby back. I gave him life and I couldn't give it back...hes gone. My heart is broken and I'm lost. Although he was 22, he is still my baby. He was such an excellent young man and I am so proud of my son. His demeanor, the way he spoke and the respect he had for everyone was just something to be proud of. He amazed me and his smile was like sunshine. He was also an excellent father to Zena. He watched her in the daytime while her mom worked and throughout the week when my she had things to do and he never complained.  He loved his baby girl. He was just a home body that like to play his game and he would have her in his lap while he played. He wasn't on drugs, never been arrested, never in trouble just a all around good man. I cant believe I'm going through this, i would have never thought I would be burying my child. My sister Eileen said it best... he was just too special to be hear. In the most of it all, Victor didn't have burial insurance and he wasn't on his job long enough to acquire the benefits.  So if you all will please help me send my baby home with a descent burial. Anything will help. I greatly appreciate it, this is not something I would usually do but I have no one else to ask. Please help and thank you all so much. Thanks in advance from his mom Deloris Johnson.
