  2. To Kevin D Boyd’s Mother and Family:

    I was there when he took his last breath. It broke my heart to see someone die. As a mother myself I hurt so much at that scene. It could have been my boy. I heard the gunshots from the parking lot. I thought a car was back firing. I waited in my car until I saw people running away. I had to go back to see what the commotion was about when I saw Kevin lying on the floor in the arms of a young man who proclaimed to be his brother and was yelling for Kevin to keep breathing and to look at him. Tears of sorrow welled up in my eyes. I haven’t cried in 20 years since I lost my baby sister. At that point my body grew numb. The police showed up and tried to clear the area. My feet couldn’t move. I just stood there looking helpless and the officer didn’t harass me. The ambulance finally arrived and one of the EMTs started CPR and chest compressions on Kevin’s body. I wondered, “Why would a person perform chest compressions on a person who is breathing?” Then it hit me. Kevin had moved on. I saw them place Kevin on the stretcher after wrapping him in a sheet with his face exposed and a breathing apparatus on his face. They placed him in the ambulance and drove off without the sirens confirming what I knew. The crowd disbanded and the police sealed off the crime area. It was then that the officer helped me to get my feet moving again. I made it to my vehicle and went home. I sat in my driveway for about 30 minutes in a daze until my child came and got me. I couldn’t tell her what had happened because I was in a semi shocked state. All I could think about was your baby and what you must be going through. I still am. I pray to God quite often to bring some peace and hopefully some comfort to you and your family. As I look at Kevin’s picture on this website I see a little boy who was sweet, curious and mischievous as a child. I see a boy who loved his Mommy. I see a kind heart. I see innocence. I see your baby. Just as a mother comforts her hurting child, I say to you and the family let go and let God.
