Rashawn, when Christa first brought you home from the hospital, I held my arms out to hold you. Since that day I continued to hold you. You are the son I never had. I loved you unconditionally for the 26 years God allowed us to have you. I miss you so very much at times it feels like as I am falling into a black hole and there is nothing for me to grab hold of. There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of you. I miss you so much. Your son Naseer is so much like you, his attitude and independent ce for your characteristics is so much like you. He broke my heart of several occasions when he said auntie Robin I want to take a plane to heaven so I can see my daddy. It all seems so unfair that he should grow up without you I know how much you loved him. It is a little over two years since your were murdered and life for us will never be the same again. Please know that we are working hard to gain Justice for both you and Kawan. Birthdays and holidays are the worst without you. You were always the first to call me to wish you a happy birthday reminding me of my age. I miss and love you Goonie and I will always keep you memory alive. Be good and make sure your pants are not drooping. Love always you aunt.
