Tribute

My name is Jessica, Abraham's wife. My family and I appreciate the huge amount of support, donations,
and kind words. I know that everyone’s day comes when God wants to take them home
with him. However, I never imagined it would be this soon. It’s crazy how life works. This
is the most heartbreaking thing I’ve ever experienced. We had our whole lives planned
out. We were in the search for a home, we planned on getting married, we hoped to
have 3 more kids, we talked about all the places we wanted to visit together and all the
adventures we wanted to experience. He was the most goal oriented person. If you
knew him, you knew that when he set a goal he wouldn’t stop until he achieved it. He
was a hardworking and loving father. He was one year closer to finishing with his
associates in police science and closer to becoming a police officer. Just recently he
was talking to me about wanting to get his bachelors to become a detective. He wanted
to change the community and make a difference, he wanted to be a change in the
system. He had one big goal, which was to build his own basketball park here on the
southside, and that’s something I pray one day I can fulfill for him and have his legacy
remembered. As a result of someone's selfish act, the world lost such a beautiful soul, a
father, a friend, a brother, a son, my husband. It’s hard to even think about all the things
he's now going to miss out on. All of Aubrey’s birthday parties, her first day of school,
her graduation, he won’t be able to help me when she wants to start dating, and he
won’t experience our grandchildren. I just wish this was a dream, that I could just wake
up and have him in my arms again. I know he’s here and I just want to thank him for all
the experiences and memories he left with me. We have a huge piece of him with us
always, our sweet baby Aubrey. Because of him I’ve gotten to experience a different
type of love. He also introduced me to the most amazing people. People that will now
always be in my life and I will love as if they're my family. I will make sure Aubrey knows
the amazing person that he was and the loving family and friends that he has. I will
never let her forget him.
The only advice I have to give to everyone out there is this; Cherish those around
you. Don't forget to say “I love you”, hold your loved ones tight for me tonight and every
night after that, always check up on your friends, spend as much time as you can with
the ones you love, because whether we like it or not, they won’t always be here.
I know that I’m not the only one feeling this loss. Everyone out there, I'm with
you. I feel it too. We’ll never forget his jokes, his contagious laugh, him bragging about
his honda, I mean his ferrari. I just can’t believe I’ll no longer have him physically there
with me, to sleep next to, to wake up with, to eat with, to go to for advice and to be there
for Aubrey. It's just so hard. I love you all, thank you guys for everything.
