Remembering Robert Godwin, Sr.

Cleveland, OH | Godwin was killed on Easter Sunday.  He was walking home from an Easter meal with his family when the stranger walked up to Robert Godwin Sr. The two talk briefly before the stranger pulls out a gun and fires.  He was a father to 10 children, a grandfather and a great-grandfather.

“He was a giver and he loved his family.”  Today his family shares a message of forgiveness.

“We forgive him, We forgive him…. Because it is the right thing to do. It’s what daddy taught us. It’s the way we were raised….. Mr. Stephens, we forgive you.  But, we are asking that you turn yourself in, PLEASE!”
