While we all sat in a hospital room, waiting to find out about my mom... She had been sick, but was improving. Michael had not shown up at the hospital and we couldn't understand. We are a tight family and he was the 1st grandson and close to his Ma Ma!
At 2:19am I stood up with a gut wrenching feeling. We all thought mom had died. The the Doc came in and said to go home... that she was stable. We got home at 4:30 am. Michael had not been home either. So I figured he was at a friends house. At 7:30 am We got that “Knock” on the door that we never want to hear….and to make a long story short ( I will get this all down soon ) He was murdered at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Richmond,Va. He was found on the ground in front of the building. The top floor window (16th story) was broken above him. There was signs of physical trauma on his body previous to his going out the window according to the ME. Time of death was between 2:15 and 2:30 am!!! That explains why I had that gut wrenching feeling now! Mom was in the hospital and we tried protecting her by keeping the news about Michael from her until she was better. That very day the evening news came on and mom heard about her grandson's murder over the speakers beside her bed. She died of shock 3 minutes after hearing it! :'(
