Family of Louisville man killed 2 years ago spends Father’s Day at cemetery
Charles Cowherd, a father of seven, was shot and killed two years ago. His murder is still unsolved.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – A Louisville family spent their Father's Day at a cemetery. The holiday lands on the same day Charles Cowherd was killed two years ago.
With prayer, song and poems Charles Cowherd was remembered as a father, husband, son and brother. His widow, Nicole Cowherd, says the holiday will never be the same.
“It's a horrible way to spend Father's Day,” she said.
It was spent at Green Meadows Cemetery in a somber celebration of love.
“We came out here just to basically let him know his legacy lives on and we'll never forget about him,” Nicole Cowherd said.
The 34-year-old was shot and killed near 23rd and Standard Avenue in June of 2016.
“The day that his killers took him, they didn't only take him. They took a part of me, his kids, his parents, his siblings. They took so many lives. They didn't just take that one life,” Nicole Cowherd said.
Charles Cowherd was a father of seven.
“He was a wonderful man. He was a protector, he was a provider, he was just full of life, full of joy,” Nicole Cowherd said.
To this day, the family is still seeking the answers they so desperately want because the person or people responsible are still out there.
“I struggle with that day by day,” Nicole Cowherd said. “I just need that closure. That little bitty piece.”
She’s asking anyone who saw something that day to call LMPD's anonymous tipline.
“You never get over grief. You just learn to get through. And that's what I'm doing day by day. I'm just pushing through. I'm not over it. Two years later I'm not over it. I just learn to push through,” she said.
