Amber Packard

In memory of Robert Wilkerson

Hello, my name is Amber. I have three siblings, and we were all raised close together. I, however, am the middle child. My big brother’s name is Robert, but everyone called him Tuba. We lost our mom in 2010, due to congestive heart failure.

The last time I saw my brother was March 19, 2018. I received a call at 9:42 p.m. on March 22, 2018, to hear someone tell me that my brother was found shot dead in his car. He was my everything! Always there for me when I needed him. I’m blessed that he left a beautiful daughter here for me. It has been so hard without him. His legacy will forever live through me. I pray no one has to go through the hurt and pain that we have.
