A Dallas father who died trying to stop a domestic violence fight is now being honored in a special way. A group of local businesswomen was so touched by Rubin Brown's actions, they donated $1,200 to his family.
"I pray every night for peace and understanding and strength," said Quenetha Bell, Brown's fiancee. "And God gives me that."
Bell is now a single mother to their young children. Brown was killed trying to break up a domestic fight among strangers on their front yard. She said the people he was trying to help gunned him down on their son's birthday.
"He’ll know on that day, ‘I was born that day, my daddy he died, but he died for a good cause.’ And he’s gonna know his daddy was a man," Bell said. "And he’s going to get that from him."
Bell said there are days when she struggles.
"With my faith in God I know he is OK," Bell said. "I have peace, but me just being human, the five senses, to see, to feel, to hear, to touch, to hear, you miss it."
Bell's story struck a chord with a group of local businesswomen.
