Shelby's Legacy

On the 14th it will have been 5 months since my sister was murdered. Where has the time gone? It just happened. Somehow life has a way of continuing. It's almost a slap in the face. How can life go on, business as usual, while my entire world has been upended? But it's not for me to understand.

Her death is not something that I will ever make peace with. It's not something that I will ever get over or move on from. But I have chosen to move forward.  I have chosen to live. I will not let grief take me. Although it may creep up on me from time to time and I will have bad days simply from looking at a picture, or recalling a memory, but I will not let it consume me. 

The Shelby Legacy Fund was created to help raise money for my niece. You've all see her pictures. Like I said, I can't help but think the sun shines out of her ass. Just look at this face. What's not to love?

And so, even though it's not my style to do this, I can't not do it. 

I will ask you all to donate to the memory of my sister. $1; $5; however much you'd like to give. But if that's not something you feel comfortable with, then I simply ask that you share this post. Help spread the world. 

I do this so that my niece can be taken care of in every way possible.  
I do it to remember my sister. 
I do it so that she's never forgotten.


  1. Definitely a worthy cause! What a tragedy your family is dealing with

  2. i am so incredibly sorry for your loss, and baby chevelle...i will definitely be keeping your family in my prayers and contributing to the fund <3
