Military Wife you need to quit making excuses for him...he shot & killed his wife/mother of his 3 kids & it is absolutely stupid!! The kids will suffer the most...I hope he suffers & is punished alot but it won't bring her back for those kids to have their mother. We don't care what your opinion is anyway so shut up & talk to him if you care that much about him...oh that's right...I guess he is still in jail huh...he committed MURDER!! Also...I noticed the obituary says Rita Kelley & NOT Merritt & he is not mentioned as a survivor...way to go for her family...I don't blame them at all...I wouldn't mention him either!!!
Grow up sweetheart. You seem to think your opinion matters.

Why are you making absurd accusations just because someone has a different opinion? I never read in her comments that she defended him or his actions. She only said not to make assuptions until facts are presented. Now, as a family member of a few solders, I know how hard it is for them to adjusts to civilian life. I have witnessed with my own eyes episodes of PTSD. It is a scary thing to see them freak out and have a flashback as though they are still in a war. People who have never been through this or seen this, will never understand. They are even trained to fight in their sleep. I saw one of them sleepwalking, imitating shooting a gun. I don't even like to think about what could have happened if they had actually had access to a gun. PTSD is very real, and I agree that the army doesn't do enough to help them. Now, I have no idea if this man was suffering from PTSD or not. I do not know him, but I do know that whatever happened, it is a tragedy and nothing any of us could say can reverse time and bring her back. It is obvious that a beautiful wife and mother died tragically. Her family and her children have so much to deal with for the rest of their lives. We should not excuse him for he did, but we should all focus more on trying to help the family and the children.

That's exactly why your opinion doesn't matter! He deserves to put thrown into a war zone with no way to defend hisself. No gun. No nothing. To die knowing he is fixing to get shot just like Rita had to. And his family should have to watch cause the baby had to watch her die.

I never claimed that my opinion mattered. I post to get my point across and I don't really care what you people think about what I have to say. All that this interaction between you and I has done is shown me that I can make my point without telling someone to "shut up". As for you I'm just curious as to what grade you're in because you've proven that you don't have the ability to interact on an adult level. Matter of fact "Wacko" is right up there with you so don't feel alone.

to Military Wife...your comment 'Grow up sweetheart. You seem to think your opinion matters.'..I am not your dang sweetheart & nobody cares about your opinion & if you had been such a good friend to this guy who murdered Rita (her husband) and spent some time talking to him instead of spending all your time on a computer like you are doing here commenting...well it wouldn't have helped either I don't guess. As you can see buy several others comments...nobody cares about your opinion & thinks you're just as nuts at the murderer!! My husband use to be in the military so I was once a military wife too but I don't feel sorry for this guy taking her life this way at all...so senseless & I won't waste another minute on this topic commenting to your stupid remarks because you aren't worth it!!!
