I hate to be mean, but if he was attemting to break into a warehouse to steal copper, he kind of got what he deserved. No amount of money is worth jail and/or death.
Still, my prayers go out to his family because no matter what he was doing, they will still be grieving over his death.

I bet that no matter what you say, as the day wore on you forgot to actually ever pray for his family.

Be honest.
