Minutes may be comedian Chris Paul‘s specialty, but as many of us know, there isn’t enough time in the world to get over losing a loved one.
Paul, a longtime member of the Tom Joyner Morning Show family, is mourning the loss of his mother Mrs. Helen McMillian. He expressed his grief on Facebook in a heartfelt message that reminds us that life is short, he wrote:
I haven’t really talked about it, and I haven’t written about it or posted anything. But on Friday there will be another funeral for my family to attend. In February my oldest brother passed away, and 80 days later, my Mom. My dear sweet, sweet Mother. The woman who loved me and believed in me way before I was capable of loving and believing in myself. The woman who planted the seed of God inside of me that grew me into a prayerful warrior for Christ. I have had many glasses of bourbon since getting that phone call last Tuesday at 4am. My mother went into the hospital right after my brother died and she never came home. The pain of losing her oldest baby was too much for her 78 year old body to take. But my Mama suffers no more. She dances with Angels now. Pain and suffering are burdens for us living. One more glass of Maker’s before I turn in tonight. But no tears. I am forever filled with the blessing of knowing I had the greatest mother who ever walked the planet. I know a lot of you believe that you have the best mother. But you’re wrong.
