AidsWalk 2011: I walk for my uncle.

Aids Walk NY is this Sunday May 15 in Central Park.  I will be walking with my team named after my uncle Team Kenneth Watkins.  My uncle passed away from Aids related complications and every year my family and friends get together to honor him and all of those that we have lost from this disease. 
I have so many special memories of my uncle.  He bought me my first Bell Biv Devoe tape, he fostered my love of writing with a kitty pen and paper set when I was seven.  We both loved fashion, Beyonce, and the word fierce!  But he never got to see me get married and he'll never meet my children. So I don't just walk for the memories we had, but the memories we missed.  You can donate to a wonderful cause here.  

To those that have donated already or will be donating soon, God Bless You and THANK YOU!
