Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman & Husband Honor Brother’s Memory with Forgivness


In 2012 Kimberly Schlapman of Little Big Town‘s brother-in-law took a motorcycle ride on Thanksgiving eve. The ride, usually done as a group of the guys from the family, was done solo, and he promised to be home by 5:30. Dinner came and went, dessert was served, but Allen Schlapman, father and husband, never returned. Instead, two Williamson County police officers rang the doorbell, explaining that Allen had died instantly when a drunk driver had crossed the center line, hitting the motorcycle head on. And although sorrow and hatred were the initial reaction, the couple tell The Tennessean that they’ve moved passed that.

The first thing I thought: This guy killed my brother. I hope he goes to the electric chair,” Stephen Schlapman said. “Some careless, selfish, inconsiderate stupid drunk hit him, killed him.”

Forgiveness speeds up the process of being able to move on. Until you forgive the person who did you terribly wrong, you can’t move on and you’ll never be able to talk about it.”

Instead, the couple have started a non-profit, The Dogwood Project, that delivers teddy bears and dogwood trees — Allen Schlapman’s favorite kind of tree — to children in Tennessee who lose a parent. The Dogwood Project also gives surviving parents recommendations for grief counselors for their kids.

Since the accident, Gregory Powers was sentenced to 22 years for the death of Allen. He has written a letter to the family, and asked for forgiveness. You can read the entire letter here.
