Though your murderer was sentenced to 192 years in prison, it doesn't seem like enough. Your courage so outshines the cowardice of all involved in your murder that it's blinding.

I am confident that your family feels your presence every day and that you continue to watch over them. I am grateful that you have been honored here.

God Bless, Brother and may you eternally rest in Heaven.
