In memory of Michael E. Washington Jr

My son Michael Washington Jr. was murdered on March 10, 2009, five days before his 24th birthday. I received a call letting me know he was shot. My whole world in an instant was turn upside down. When he died, a part of me died that day as well. My heart will never be whole again. He leaves a beautiful daughter who will never know her dad. Only the stories we tell her. ??
