RIP Doobie & Uncle Jerry
August 3, 2008 at 8:14PM I got a call that changed my life. My cousin Joanna calls me hollering and screaming, "He's Dead", "He's Dead". It didn't hit me until she Yells, "Doobie is Dead". My heart sunk to the floor. The first thought that came to mind was ..."this is a dream". Doobie cant be dead. Within the next few hours I gained information from various family members in Mississippi that my 15 year old cousin Doobie was swimming with his family in the Pearl River. I river I drive across every time I go to my grandmother's house. A river that not only took his life but the life of his Father, my Uncle Jerry. Doobie started having trouble while swimming when he called out for his Daddy. At that point his father jumped in and went to rescue his son but at the same time after reaching him and trying to bring him back to shore they both went under the water. Even after many other cousins jumping in to look for them it wasn't successful. At 9:15PM I got a call that they found their bodies.
I wasnt able to leave Maryland immediately knowing what happened because my Mother did not want my sister and I driving. So I ended up taking a flight out on Wednesday, August 6, 2008. Being at home calmed my soul. My family sticking close to each other to wipe each other's tears showed me that family is always there and if one isnt strong enough to stand there is a cousin, aunt, sister, uncle, or grandmother to help you stand.
Saturday, August 9, 2008 the double funeral was held at Doobie's high school gymnasium to a packed crowd. Filled with loved ones, fellow students, teachers, family and a host of others to remember the life that Doobie and his father Jerry led.
I will never forget you lil cuz and I will never forget you Uncle Jerry.
If your interested I've posted pictures of Doobie on my
