Sad Day

It is with a heavy heart that I tell you all that my cousin's body was found yesterday.  He had been murdered, shot in the head.  It is unfathonable for me to think how one human being can point a gun at anothers' head and pull the trigger.  Ending one life and causing so much pain and  heartache to others. 
Richard was just 40 years old and had a lifetime of promise ahead of him.  His heart was full of love, life and laughter.  He was such a good, sweet and loving soul whose spirit here on earth will certainlly be missed.  My heart goes out to his parents, my aunt and uncle, his brother and his wife, Andrea.  He was loved by many and will be missed by many.

"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted. He recues those whose spirits are crushed." Psalm 34:18 (nlt)

  4. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I don't understand the violence either, and unfortunately, have been through pretty much the same thing.I hope that your family gets the justice that it deserves, even though it won't bring Richard back, maybe it can give your family some peace. hugs...
