Recent Widow Shares Her Story of Heartache and Hope, and Explains Why She’s Still His
Kimberly Holmes-Wiggins married the love of her life, Rasheed Wiggins a few short years ago.
Her fairy tale took a tragic turn earlier this year when Rasheed was killed in a hit and run in Florida. Kim is using her story to help other widows. She joins us on the couches to tell us about “Still His.”
Kim used to be a reporter at WBOC. She left Delmarva to pursue her journalism career in 2010 and was married shortly after. Kim says her and Rasheed were long distance for seven years and got married in Duke Chapel in 2011.
On April 16, 2016, Rasheed and Kim were spending the day together at their apartment. That night, they were watching a movie and Rasheed decided to go to the store right across the street from their apartment complex. However, Rasheed did not come home. After an hour, Kim got worried.
She grabbed her dog, went outside, and saw all of the flashing lights and a crowd. Kim asked police what was going on and they replied that someone had been hit. Rasheed had been struck by a car on his way back to their apartment. He was then thrown into the roadway where two more vehicles hit him.
Kim tells us that they are still searching for the first two vehicles that hit him. The first car was a white Toyota Prius and they believe the second driver was on her phone because her face was illuminated by the light on her phone.
She created a group called “Still His.” The group is for widows to provide love and support to other widows. Kim found a blog online called “Still His” and she said the words ‘spoke to her soul.’ Now they have launched “Still His.” You can order clothing, accessories, and read blog posts from Kim and her wister – widow sister – Veronica.
Kim says each day she has gotten stronger and knowing that there are other people she can talk to, and who are on this same journey, helps.
