She does not realize the pain she has put this family through.It has been almost three years since we recieved the devastating news,and I can only see the pain in my daughter and grandson's hearts,frm this. I feel as though she didn't recieve enough time for what she has done.

No human deserves to die at the hands of another! And I too feel she has not received enough time for the crime she has committed. I do feel she has experienced pain but none like the blood relatives who she has taken him away from permanently. She has gone on in her everyday life doing the things she has wanted to do and seeing things she has wanted to see. She has even gone as far as to bringing her own seed, a son, into the world. The love she has for her son, forces her to realize the pain she has caused for the mother of Gevon. As much as she wished she could change the events that occurred in 2006 she cant and she will be forced to live with that for the rest of her life. She received 16 years but she will never see all 16 years behind bars due to small clauses in the the law. She was his wife, so therefore she did love, but she too should live with the pain of loosing a love one. Starting a family and falling in love with another man should be taken away from her as it was taken away from him. He tried to walk away and lost his life for eternity. She became violent and received a sentence of solitude that wont last for ever. I do believe the death of her father during her recent incarceration has made her heart feel a fraction of what Gevon's blood family has been feeling. But a person of her caliber who is able to actually pick up a weapon and use it with force will never truly feel they deserve the consequences of their actions. Sitting in her tiny jail cell behind bars she feels she doesn't belong there, because it was an accident and she will look towards hope with every day the sun rises and sets. Thats why she truly and honestly belongs there.

While I was shocked to hear about this because I was in fact looking for her. I must say that who you think you know is not how you know her as a person. She is not aa murderer at heart....She does not carry nor did she ever carry such ill contempt in her heart. Unfortunately, a SERIOUS turn of unfortunate events took place and in God's eye there is no such thing as an eye for an eye or make you hurt like I hurt. No matter what, we have to forgive. If that was the case we would all not be here. How do you not know that she is not feeling is that she is the very reason for her father's death? Do you even know how he died? Could you imagine carrying the burden of not just one but two deaths in your heart and/or soul. I can imagine it would be a pretty hard boat to row. So it is my solemn prayer that why none of us understand what took place that fateful day that we all find a way to forgive those who have offended us and those whom we may offend by thought, word, and/or deed. May GOD be with your family and comfort you. May GOD embrace and embody the child Gevon brought forth preventing any seeds of hate or resentment be planted within him from the words and actions of others. I pray that he will grow to be a living example of how God through Jesus intended for us to walk this earth. May every step this child walk be blessed and ordained by the hand of God. I pray that there will be a spirit of forgiveness to fall up the Davis family that they may heal. I pray that not only will they heal but understand that somewhere there was an unanswered call for help that they may be given the strength to answer it for it is never too late. You said to ask dear Lord and we shall receive. You also said seek and ye shall find. I believe that this family is in fact seeking dear Lord. I pray that you will close eyes that seek blame and hearts of anger and open them so that they may see you anew. I ask these and many other blessings in the name of Jesus!!!!! AMEN!!!!!

I pray that after total understanding of the degree of sincerity of this matter, Miss Hakima Davis can find peace with herself, and with the Davis Family. There are no words, or no sentence that can undo the chain of events that happened on that uneventful night. I ask for anyone who still reflects on this event to pray for Gevon, his family along with Hakima and her family. I also ask for everyone to think of the importance of life and how the worth of walking away from instances in life that you can not change, is well worth it.

Well I will miss Gevon.He died tragically.But in defense of Hakima, she went through her share of abuse with nobody coming to her defense as well.Now she is paying for something that she can't change.Let them both be.God forgives her, and Gevon would forgive her.I know this.Jesus gave forgiveness to the thief on the cross before he died.

Babys mother.
Although im a woman of god im having the most difficut time trying to forgive this woman. He had 4 children. These children will grow up not knowing what could have been. They will lack the love of there father. My son is an athete he will never get to share that with his dad. He will forever carry this sadness and have a massive emptiness that will never be satisfied. And i will have to raise him as a man. I wont share the personal struggles we go through but i will say no amount of jail time wil bring him back or allow his children there father back.

I knew Gevon.He killed as well.But nobody mentions that because of their own grief Let me take you back to North Carolina,which I know his family is aware of this.I'm not throwing salt onto old wounds.But I know he got away with murder,and other things in addition to that.So be careful what you say about others loved ones.HL
