In memory of Isiah Cobb

June 10, 2024, would be the day that, one year ago, I knew my world would change in an instant because a very special friend of mine would called back home to our Heavenly Father. My brother Isiah was a bright light to everybody that knew him—very wise during his 33 years of living,

June 10th 2023, would be a day that automatically changed for everyone that loved him because he became, unfortunately, a gun victim of someone he once trusted. His family and his friends miss him very dearly every day. There’s not one day when we don’t memorialize him every time we see pictures of him on social media, etc.

My final thoughts:

“Brother, we miss you terribly, more than you ever know. You were the shining light that we all needed while you was here, but I’m forever grateful that I’ve gotten to know you since our junior year in high school. I wish that day was just a nightmare, but I know it’s not. Save me a seat one day. We will run into each other again.”
