“I don’t know how I’m going to do this. How are we going to go without you our son. We are in shock, disbelief, sad, devastated, and the empty feeling that life has become without you is still a numb feeling. I still hope that is a horrible nightmare I’m going to wake up from, but every time I open my eyes it hits me all over again that you are gone. I won’t hear you call me momma bear, tell me you love me, or tell me I’m beautiful. Awww Mijo we are so heartbroken. Last night our son was killed in a car accident. He was well known and loved he would of done anything for anyone he knew. Please keep our family in your prayers. “
