Tribute to Ronnie Terrell Williams Death
Motel staff discovered DJ STEPHEN “TWITCH” BOSS dead in the restroom due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Stephen’s wife, Allison, panicked when she reported her husband missing – saying that he was nothing like him and that he had left his car at the apartment.
I had a best friend who committed suicide after we were 14 years earlier. You see what I went through as a kid. I didn’t get through it by any means. She knew me a few minutes before she took the photos herself. At 14, I didn’t know the gauges, but I was good enough to know one thing was wrong, mostly from our dialogue. I thought about all this that evening and couldn’t sleep. I even heard a gunshot, but I tried to put it out of my mind. I figured it was her. Think about getting on the bus and getting ready for her to take the seat next to you. Think about going to class and the counselor calls you to your workplace asking questions. Think about asking about her stuff that was in your locker. I dealt with this trauma for several years and dreamed many times where we mentioned why she did it. In my cells, we held hands all the time, jumped up and down and talked about the reasons why her life ended. She came to my cells almost every day. God was preparing me to do His work, but I was like Jonah, refusing to obey and trying to act. I promised myself that under no circumstances would I deal with suicidal people, but my whole observation, along with my internship, was dealing with suicidal buyers. Some smuggled shoelaces into hospital pockets to try to suffocate. Some have tried to jump off bridges. While I am still traumatized by it, I have found that I can fix it
bigger than me. I can’t forget I signed up for it. In the last 3-4 years, there were only a few people on my Facebook co-workers list who had suicidal thoughts. I knew the indicators, although I had no personal connection with them. I’ve sent a message to everyone to let them know I’m there to listen and advise at no cost. Two of them committed suicide, and the other one came to me for advice. All three were men. Men… There’s nothing wrong with asking for help! We would like, and above all, we would like you to apply yourself. You can be sad about life experiences if you happen to not learn instruments to stick to yourself. There’s nothing wrong with expressing how you feel. The social definition of a strong man is inaccurate. You are a unique person and should not be put on an equal footing with others because your desires are usually not the same as everyone else’s. A powerful man allows himself to truly feel. If he wants to, he becomes emotional, if he wants to, he cries, he is not afraid to ask for help. Society tells you that a brawny man has to suck it up and take care of it. Pls don’t follow the standard. Let’s make getting help a whole new normal. 🙏🏽
I only shed a few tears watching this this morning 😢
I used to be devastated to learn of the passing of Stephen “tWitch” Boss, whom I’ve known over the years through my Let’s Transfer! initiative and visits to The Ellen Present. Stephen was an unimaginable force – someone who radiated kindness and positivity and made those around him feel that too. We felt his spirit in every dance, in every DJ set, in every bit of creativity he gave up in life. My heart goes out to his wife, Allison, and their three children, Weslie, Maddox and Zaia.
