Good evening. I’m sitting here at my computer on the eve of my son Kelvin Brown Jr.’s death and trying to understand why I still see mothers, fathers, siblings and others having to endure the tragedy and pain of burying a loved one. Senseless gun violence hasn’t decreased! My son was murdered before noon on Monday, February 4, 2013, in KCK. He was the last person I had spoken to before clocking in at work. His last words to me were, “I love you, Momma, I love you Momma. Call me later.” Who would have known that five to seven minutes later, after hanging up my phone, that would be the last time I would ever hear his voice.
He leaves four beautiful children behind — and the pain and frustration of knowing that they will never know him and enjoy having a parent that wanted nothing but to love on them and be the dad that God meant for him to be. I continue to go counseling to deal with it, and most importantly, I rely on God! Keep me in your prayers, as I pray for those that know this pain.
