Was saddened to hear from my Canadian homegirl about a death in her family.
She just told me her 20 year old nephew Jesse James Cox AKA 'Gentle Giant' as he was known to their family and his friends died earlier today.
Jesse earned that nickname because of his 6'5" stature and easygoing nature.
Unfortunately, the family's grief over their loss is magnified by the fact they are unable to pay for the funeral.
Renee has a sidebar donation box at her Womanist Musings blog asking for donations to help defray the costs for his funeral.
Any amount will do.
My condolences to your nephew's family and as always you, the unhusband, Mayhem and Destruction are in my prayers as well.
