I knew him but not for very long. He offered me tickets to a sold out Georgia Tech vs Miami college football game in Oct, 2006 and I declined. He was a good guy.

His name was also John. What a coincidence. Do you know what karma is?

To Clarify......
A young lady was dancing-which includes booty shaking, grinding, etc in 2008-with John Hoover in an effort to anger her boyfriend, which she successfully did. He hit John with a bottle and a fight ensued. Security broke up the fight and removed all parties, taking the offenders out the front entrance and Mr Hoover out the back. The fool went to his car, retrieved his weapon and went to the back and shot Mr. Hoover. Security grabbed Mr. Hoover and brought him back into the building. 911 was called. We were placed on hold and after requesting assistance, it took 20 minutes for an ambulance to arrive. Keep in mind there is a hospital within a 4 min drive and a fire station within a 2 min drive. Mr Hoover, unfortunately died enroute to the hospital.
Hi - John was the father to his one and only son. Although we never married, we remained friends. I have always been a single mom trying to do the very best for my son on limited income. I am proud to say he will be graduating from college this year with a degree in criminal justice. Ms Stanley...if John was like family to you all...it would have been nice to see a fund or something put in my sons name to help pay for his college tuition...or the very least a car. The young man who shot John wasn't even old enough to drink in your establishment and yet he was. John was hot-tempered...but did not deserve a beer bottle over the head nor to lose his life. This month marks another sad anniversary of our loss. We miss you John. I miss your humor...and I miss that mischeiveous laugh.

I feel for you loss as you approach another sad anniversary. Though I had no fault, If I could have afforded a college fund for John's son, I would have done so.

Please do not take what I'm about to say negatively because that is not my intention. Many Americans, especially minorities, are under-insured. We often don't have enough life insurance to make sure our families can survive in our absence. When we have children we have to prepare for college from the day they're born.

Owning a business doesn't necessarily make a person wealthy. And have little money doesn't mean a person doesn't care. I am glad that justice has been served and the people responsible for Hoover's murder are doing their time. Again, i'm sorry for your loss.
