Two and a half weeks after the Dallas Police Department said he was attacked at the Skillman’s CVS store where he worked, the knurled man stays in the ICU.
“It’s been two weeks, two and a half weeks, yes, I miss him. I just want him to go through that door. That’s the most important thing.” Benny Davis said.
Instead, Davis had to travel daily to the ICU to visit her husband Curtis Davis.
After police arrested 23-year-old Daveyon Miles, 63-year-old remains on ventilator.
They said on Saturday, October 23, Miles entered the store, spoke to Davis, and randomly slammed him on the ground.
“When he fell, he grabbed him a kind, pulled him back and began to step on his head. They said they estimated 15 to 30 times,” said Davis’ son James Davis. ..
James said it was too early to know how much damage had been done, as his father couldn’t speak yet.
“It’s just time, and we give it to him,” James said.
The family is now confident that their five grandfathers will survive. But what they can’t wrap in their hearts is how the man they say they would do anything for anyone became a very angry target.
With his perpetrator behind the bar, the family waits for judgment and forgiveness as they understand Davis’ full salary and the next few months without an uncertain future.
“You know, they say time heals all wounds, and maybe that’s true. Not enough time has passed,” James said.
It may continue to do so slowly.
But, as it is, they will rely on their faith, each other, and incredible support and prayer to bring Davis home.
“It’s just a little light in the world that seems to have dimmed over the years, and I’m very happy to see it. So that something bad happens and you can see it again. To do, it’s almost a little beauty in a very tragic time, “said James.
As Davis was unable to work, the family started GoFundMe to help his wife Benny prepare for a few months hospital visit.
