The fate of that creature which murdered you is not listed here, to commit murder over one lousy penny, even if a penny was worth more in 1953, is disgusting. We can only hope this creature faced true justice, if not in this world, then in the next.

God Bless you, Brother and may you eternally Rest in Peace.
