To the family, friends, and classmates of 8-year old Martin Cobb my heart feels for you. I know what it is like to have a child taken from you. I’m just getting the strength to respond publically about this tragedy for lil Marty and his sister. I started the send-a-kid to camp with support from my sister in Christ Kim Jones-Booker to keep kids safe because Alex, her son and my godson, was playing with his ‘so-called’ friends who left him to die in alone in the dirt. Through the loss and the unbearable pain of Alexander Lance Booker, Kim started the Alexander Lance Booker Foundation. From there she speaks at schools, colleges and sits on various boards targeting child safety and prevention. As I was dealing with the pain ‘Oh God’ I started the send-a-kid to camp radiothon with Kim’s blessing as a tribute to Alex. He loved summer camp at Richmond Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities.
