You always said we were each other’s spirit animal. Icon. Legend. Tarik Jackson. One of a kind. Creme de la creme. Family. This one hurts bad, I feel my breath taken away when I think about you are gone.

I can’t find the words to express this void in the world now. You were the driving force into why I stayed in Los Angeles so long. We were supposed to walk the red carpet together remember?!? You had mine and Nyla’s back out there in the “LA Streets.” We go back to when we were in The Wizard of Oz in elementary school. You said “shhh don’t let no one know that” but little did you know your performance was what sparked my light.

It drove me to keep pushing as an actress. We were track stars “love and pole vault!” You believed in me intensely, and I believed in you king, always…even when you didn’t believe I did. You are light. You are a force. Your smile, laughter, our insiders, your voice memos to me, our late-night calls to vent, to grow, to learn, to work. You told me I will make it, keep going, that I deserved it all.

Please say this is a bad dream! I will miss you my spirit animal. I’ll always have a love for you and all of your family, you are FAMILY ALWAYS!! Praying hard, Rest Peacefully King. There’s no way anyone can forget your wonderful soul.
