I remember when that happened. I went to the post office and when I got to the post office the apartment building was swarming with cops and people were cryig. I talked to the boys brother and tried to console him. Very tramatizing for me. I also had a family member that died a similar tragic death. A person never gets over something that horrible.

It has been nineteen years and it seems like it was about a year ago. My sympathy to you and your family. I walked that path before and it is the worst thing that ever happened to me in my life. No one knows unless they have to go through something like this. In St. Louis, and other major cities, there is an organization that has meetings, it's called "Parents of Murdered Children and Other Homicide Victims." I tried it and it was too sad. Some people say it helps. All the members have had loved one murdered. It's once a month.Good luck to you and your family. Pray for peace of mind.
