On June 16, 2007, a link in our family chain was broken and our lives was changed forever! At the age of 28 my daughter Kenya was killed by a Drunk Driver. Kenya was a daughter, sister, niece and a friend to many. She had so much more to give and her dream was to be a Pediatrician to care for children from birth to age 18. Kenya loved children. There is never a day that goes by that I don’t miss my baby girl! We were robbed of seeing her fulfill her dream, walk down the aisle and have children of her own. I miss her beautiful smile, our daily conversations, watching movies together on the weekends and her drive-bys to get lunch for her and her brother. She would say oh yeah Mama fix a plate for my friend or co-worker who attended bible study or church with her. She was God fearing with a loving and giving spirit. She never met a stranger and her smile was contagious. If you were blessed enough to have known her, I know she touched your life in some small way. As we enter this holiday season and each time thereafter, I asked that you speak to your friends and love ones about the consequences of drinking and driving. My constant prayer is for all Victims and Survivors of this senseless act , that God will continue to strengthen you and your families. I know that God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all we ask or think according to his power that works in us. You will always be in my heart Kenya and never ever forgotten, you are my first born. I will always be proud to tell your story and speak on your behalf.
Love you Mama (Smooches)
