    We spent time together for about 2 weeks while he stayed in my home to spend time with his 2 kids that I have. He always made the kids and I laugh. He was always trying to be funny.We take in the memory of him by the things he attempted to do for the love of his kids.Not what he chose not to do.Take away the anger that you have towards him and greive for your son. somethings we have to let go and the negative is one of those things.

    I didn't see this coming at all. And if any one seen this coming then this just shows to everyone as the mother to one of his kids how much respect you have for your own kids. Our lives will move on,but our kids will not. Especially to questions that go unanswered. If anyone wants to email: "Your heart weeps, your heart bleeds,May you come to rest in peace."

    He was not trash. He was a human being. Myself and the rest of his family seen him ly not at peace.I morn for him every day.Reguardless, his family is still a part of my life and I paid my respects to him and the rest of his family.At least when he was still alive we still had an oportunity for our kids to know him. We now have to make a choice to step in and make our sons be apart of his life.With or without him here.I now know what it is like to be a single parent now that he is gone.Our kids will never have answers and neither will I.If I have to pull out of my pocket and due what ever I have to due to prove he is not guilty so he may rest in peace,then I will.My son has always loved his father and I never took that away from him reguardless of the problems Jabour and I had. We will always grieve over him. Know one ever deserves to be tormented no matter what they have done wrong through out life. Jabour if you see this in heaven "We will always love you."Loved and taken by God.

    my heart goes out to the family. Jabour was the father to my only grandson. i feel pain because he will grow up not really knowing his dad. i would like to know if there is proof that Jabour did what he was accused of. Guess we will never know. Jabours children will grow up with lots of questions that will never be answered. we are always quick to judge others. maybe we should take a look at our own lives.
