Tameka Raymond’s son Kile Glover died last Summer after an unfortunate boating accident, and Tameka is on a lifelong mission to honor her deceased son’s memory.
Raymond launched ‘Kile’s World Foundation” a few months ago and shortly thereafter, Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signed Senate Bill #136 (i.e. The Kile Glover Boat Education Bill) into law (click HERE if you missed that).

While getting the “Kile Glover Boating Education” law passed was a big deal,? Raymond isn’t stopping there.? She’s pushing for more legislation for tougher boating laws in order to prevent accidents like the one that took Kile’s life from happening again.
Tameka spoke with Jovita Moore of WSB-TV recently, where she shared her thoughts on how boating laws should improve, also, in forming “Kile’s World Foundation,” she plans to honor her son by offering other children access to music & art (things that Kile loved) and hopes to raise funds in a quest to make a difference in the lives of others and to prove her son did not die in vain.

Less than a year after Kile’s tragic accident on Lake Lanier, Tameka and her attorney, Ashley Bell, sat down with WSB-TV to discuss that there are still loop holes in the law that need to be addressed.
Tameka shared the following via her Instagram account recently where she is hosing a fundraiser at her Estella Boutique in Roswell on May 30, 2013.
The event is open to the public… but Raymond notes that if you plan to attend be prepared to support the cause!
I admire Tameka’s resilience. It’s gotta be tough dealing with memories of her deceased 11 year old.
I’ll be donating… hopefully some of you will too.
