Dear Russell Barnes,
Sir I am forever thankful for your response to my post of Phylicia Barnes. I posted that prior to loosing a very close family member to gun violence August 23rd 2012. So I truly feel the pain that both you and your family are going through. My cousin Antonio “Twitty Sparks” Gough was gunned down in these relentless Charm City Baltimore Maryland streets, and that day has forever changed my life. I was watching a special on cable one day explaining the difference between loosing a loved one to old age or illness and loosing a loved one to sudden death. It was made clear to me that very day that the loved ones left behind are deeply scarred. Why? Because of the abruptness of how our loved one were snatched out of our lives way before their times. So trust and believe me when I say that I feel your pain. Sir feel free to share any of Phylicia’s happier times with us at The Charm City Post and I will freely share your thoughts and/or pictures with my friends and followers. Thank you for your time and may God be with you and your family. They say that time heals all wounds, but these wounds are very deep. I feel what your family feels and my prayers go out to you and your family.
Sincerely with love,
Patrick “Whosgotdirt” Vick
In Loving Memory of Phylicia Barnes

Normally I post articles and pictures about celebrities but today I am on a new mission. I lost a very dear loved one to gun violence last night. Now I have seen articles and watched the news, but it’s completely different when the situation hits closer to home than your accustomed to.
This is my story…
August 24, 2012
Multiple reports of gunfire sent police to Baltimore’s Irvington neighborhood Thursday afternoon, where they found a 26-year-old man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his head and chest. Officers responded at 4:29 p.m. to the unit block of North Athol Street near Mountview Road…
Multiple reports of gunfire sent police to Baltimore’s Irvington neighborhood Thursday afternoon, where they found a 26-year-old man suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his head and chest.
Officers responded at 4:29 p.m. to the unit block of North Athol Street near Mountview Road. The victim was taken to University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center
where he died at 5:20 p.m. Baltimore police have not identified the victim.
This young man had a name, and a family that loved him. I realize the code of the streets calls for snitches getting stitches so I am not asking for anyone to spill their guts about this incident. But I am asking you to put yourself in my shoes. What would you want someone who had information to do?
Please do the right thing if you know anything about this incident… It could have been your family member.
RIP Twitty Sparks
