Known him a long time and that was not the first time he beat her. He also killed a man in texas and got away with it. Get YOUR facts straight. I suppose YOU gad a bird's eye view? He has been a thief and liar for a long time. But you know, birds of a feather...

did you not read the article in the Lawton Constitution? Yes, all adjectives used by me fit him to a "T". Kiss my ass before you accuse me of gossip. He is worse than an old woman with his gossip and the shit he stirred. Chew on that before you accuse me of anything else. I am entitled to my opinion also and not a member of his fan club. He sucks and I hope he fries.

not gossip when I know first hand he stole from me and others. But catapult him to sainthood; he killed his wife and he should be heralded as a hometown cowboy hero just like so much trash around here has been. Done with this thread; when you speak the truth you always have a few jackasses that want to TRY to contradict and lie. Ask Lorraine's brother and her daughter if they weren't abused women and children in that home sweet home. He is an old, filthy, crazy person who deserves the same kind of punishment he meted out to his wife. Just sayin'.

Actually I did and of course I believe every thing the media prints. If I read an article that stated you are ignorant, fat, ugly and you killed a man in Texas it would be the gospel truth. I would believe every word simply because I read it in the Lawton paper. Really dont need any proof. Sounds reasonable dont you think? My point is if you were not there to witness the incident, then you really dont know what happened that time or any other time. Have you talked with any of the family members? How about the daughter and grandkids.
There is no need for any kissing or chewing. I will leave that up to you. I have a life and choose to be positive and proactive, not bitter, negative and full of half truths and lies.

I would like to know how you say can things that you dont know are true.Do you think that it is fair to let two people live the in the way they did .Why did she stay married to Sammie for 56 yrs.LORRIAN got out with Samatha so why did she come back.YOU need to know the whole facts before you judge someone.I pray for both families.May god bless each one to get thur this.It takes two in a marriage.Everybody has a side that lives in the light and also have a side that lives in the dark.
