To support young people who have lost a loved one in a tragedy. Dedicated to the memory of Dawan Floyd, 23, who lost his life in a shooting in 2008.
Last year at 27 years of age, I lost my husband, the light of my life, Dawan Floyd. During a verbal argument two young punks pulled out guns and opened fired striking my husband and killing him. You never know anymore when that last kiss will really be the last. Hold onto your loved ones tight every day and night, you'll be thankful for it one day.
