HEART-BREAKING NEWS — My brother and sister-in-law received word that their only child — my nephew — Christian Shipp was killed in a car crash in Atlanta this morning, Sunday. No details yet. Christian Marcel Shipp was born to Valerie and Chris Shipp on Dec. 22, 1994. He was 25 years old. Two years ago this month, Christian graduated from Morehouse College. He had been guided to and through Morehouse by our cousin Aubury Webb, himself a Morehouse man, Class of 1975. In one of his last Instagram posts Saturday, Christian was celebrating the 3d birthday of his goddaughter, Kinsley Buchanan.
Shipp was one of those “once in a lifetime” confidants. I could talk to him about any and every thing without a smidgen of judgement. As we spoke a couple days ago, we were both excited about our futures. The pain of losing you is excruciating, but your legacy will live on. #letthegoodtimesroll #friend #confidant #brother #angelunaware
