Honoring the year that 2020 has been, I am taking time to love on my family and rest and reflect. I will be back ready and strong in January 2021.
I want to share some beautiful memories of our Warren. He is sooooooo missed.
I want to say thank you to my amazing and loving team:
Jennifer Griner, my Extraordinary Virtual Assistant
Sekai Hurdle, my Director of Community Engagement
I want to say how grateful I am for all of you who read this blog faithfully, regularly, every now and then, when you can or whatever applies to you. So many of you have shared with me how it is helpful to you.
Lastly, I want to share that an incredible woman named Melissa Kong who is an alum of the same college as our Warren (John Jay College) and who specifically chose to work under his supervision has started a John Jay College memorial scholarship in his name. I am sharing with you the details in case you can and want to help us keep his memory and work alive.
Today, December 17th would have been Warren’s 59th birthday. He was a wonderful person who touched so many hearts and who supported his sons in every endeavor especially sports. Our oldest, Jabari, played college football and Warren hit the road every Saturday even for the games played in Maine. He cooked for the tailgates, cheered, and made friends with all the parents and the players. He made sure even non-sports fans like me had a blast!!! We used to have caravans of cars join us, filled with friends and family throughout those four years. Warren would get up at 5 AM to fry his famous fried chicken for all of us to eat on the road!
Whenever and wherever Nai’im played basketball and football, Warren rushed straight from work to be there for every single game and cheered hard and long. He made it his mission to get to know the coaches, parents, and Nai’im’s teammates. He absolutely loved every minute of it!
As we prepare to celebrate our first holiday season without him, I am reminded of his kindness, amazing smile and love of family and friends. We as a family have also pledged to contribute toward the memorial scholarship that Melissa Kong has started in Warren’s name at their alma mater, John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
In memory of his birthday, people are making donations toward the scholarship. If you can and wish to do so, visit the donation site and choose the Warren J. Price Memorial Scholarship under the designation menu. Thank you.
As you prepare to celebrate the holiday season, I wish you all peace and wellness.
