West Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- Aida Williams speaks to News19 about her her son Hassan, who was found dead from multiple gunshot wounds in Thomasville, Georgia Tuesday.
In a few days Aida Williams says she'll live every mothers worst fear, having to burry her own son Hassan.
"He wasn't just my son, he was my best friend," said Williams. "I can't even begin to say the last time I went to sleep."
Hassan, only twenty, graduated from Brookand-Cayce High in 2009. He entered the army as a specials forces airborne solder two weeks after graduation.
"He didn't have a bad bone in his body."
Williams remembers sitting in the stands at Brookand-Cayce High School watching her son show out on the field.
"He would point his hand out, and look at me and point up number one, cause that was his jersey number one, cause that meant numero uno and he was about to give me a touchdown," said Williams.
Those good times, now only memories. After returning home four days ago after receiving an honorable discharge, Hassan told his mother he was headed to Virginia.
"He just said he was going to visit some friends."
Tuesday, he was found dead in Thomasville, Ga, hundreds of miles away. Williams doesn't know how her son got to Georgia.
"It just hurts, that my son was willing to go across seas and risk his life for us here, and for him to come home and for somebody to do this to him. It's unfair."
Tonight Williams wants justice, and has a message for her sons killer.
"You don't know what you did. You took an angel from us," said Williams. "He didn't deserve this. Especially after he went across seas and fought for you!"
As a family prepares to bury their son, they'll too hope for justice. For the ex-soldier who'll always be, "numero uno."
"I love you. I'll never forget you. You're the best thing that ever came into my life."
Funeral services have not been set for Williams as the family waits for his body to return from Georgia.
