I first saw Kerry on WWF television here in Los Angeles, Ca. I never did get a chance to see him live, cause I could not afford it, but I made sure to watch wrestling every Saturday night and Sunday to see if he would be on. 9 times out of 10, he would be!!!!
He was my very first wrestling crush, then about a few years later, the Undertaker came along. I thought Kerry put on the best interviews and made the best match possible. My small world came crashing down in 1993 when Kerry was prounced dead. I asked my mother, who is not a wrestling fan to please make sure this was true. She checked all our news stations and sadly enough, it was true. I cried for three days straight and could not be consoled. I even stopped watching wrestling for a long while after that. It took some time, but I got back to wrestling and everytime a wrestler would mention the name Von Erich, I was a crying mess all over again.
Kerry, you have no idea what impact you made on my life. I loved you from the moment I laid eyes on you at the age of 13. Now that I am older, I love you still. I have no children at the moment, but if I ever have a daughter, her name will be Kerry Genene Akasha.
You will always remain in my heart and the love of my life!!!!!! I hope that you have found peace with God and with yourself.
