Kanidi Burrus Releases a Statement to Essence.com Regarding Her Ex-Fiance’s Ashley “A.J.” Jewell’s Murder

Here is Kandi’s Essence.com statement regarding her ex fiance’s Ashley “A.J.” Jewell’s murder:

“I am devastated by the loss of AJ. His death comes on the heels of the death of my beloved Uncle Ralph and with both of them gone, my heart is heavy with grief. I had spoken to AJ two hours before I got the call that he was in the hospital and never in a thousand years thought it was going to be the last time we spoke. He was taken way
too soon. There are so many things that I should have said to him, wanted to say to him. But now it’s too late.

I want to deeply extend my heartfelt thanks to all of my family and friends – and that means my twitter and facebook friends as well — for the beautiful words of encouragement, prayers, and the sweet condolences. I make it through these difficult days because of you. I know this is cliché’ but I urge everyone to treat each day as if it’s your last and tell that special someone you love them today. Don’t wait. It may be too late.

      Kandi my prayers go out to you and AJ’s family and also the kids. Keep your head up. This may seem like a tragedy to you and many others, but in gods eyes it is something totally different. He has a plan for all of us we just never know when that plan is going to go into effect. Some words of encouragement would be just to turn this into something positive in your life right now. We all know that it hurts to loose someone you care about, but put it in gods hands now and know that AJ and your uncle are in a much better place you will see them again! Don’t loose sight of what you need to do; not only for yourself, but for those children. God bless you all! Luv ya

      Sincerly Your dear friend
