Who told u that story? Because if u ask now. It's a different story. You dont know. You weren't there.

I am Seths Mother. I talked to Tommy, I talked to Brenda, Seth was not hitting on Brenda, Seth was trying to Stop a fight Robbie hit Seth. Seth drew back to hit Robbie. Brenda was standing behind Seth and got hit on accident. I saw the crime scene photos, I talked to the Sheriff, I talked to the investigator. I heard the 911 call. I saw the two guns of Tommys. I talked to Belinda. I talked to Robbie. I talked to Sara. all eye wittinesses. Was it an accident he, Tommy, came out side with a gun? Was it an accident he had a bullet in the chamber? Was it an accident he pointed the gun at Seth? God knows the truth. He will have his justice. All will testify, if if if I said if it goes to court. The jury will deciede here on earth. Tommy is a sick man he may not live another year. That is how long it will take to go to court. If it does. He was let out because he is not a flight risk, No one on Seths side of the family is after him. He did not try to run. He admitted shouting Seth. And he is sick.
I did tell Tommy I forgave him. He did say he was sorry. I do pray for his salvation, and all others that this has effected. There have already been two saved and Baptisted as a result. Tommys daughter and grandson. Praise be to God. Seth is setting at the Lord feet with joy in his heart. It is such a traggity. The shooting should have never happened. But it did. I will miss my son. But like I said I know where he is. Thanks be to all who care. And please do pray for Tommy and his family. Brenda is my ex sister-in-law.

You are a truly blessed woman. I know it may not comfort you right now, when you loss is so new. But there is a reason God put sus here on earth. You now know what Seth's was. Two people have found God thru his death. Hard as that is on you, the glory in Heaven will be much greater. Go dbless you for your love and devotion to Him and for doing as he says and forgiving. That is not always an easy thing to do. I will keep praying for your family and "Uncle" Tommy's. Do you know how sick he is? I haven't seen him since my dad died 3 yrs ago.

FYI I am so sorry that you feel the way you do about my son Seth. You are correct in saying he was involved in drugs. But the last few weeks of his life he had made a change. And he was somewhere doing something he should have not been doing the night he was murdered. But he was also doing what he thought he should do, and that was get his cousin Robby aka Robert Williams out of the situation he had gotten himself into. In the mean time Seth, Robby and others were fighting. Tommy signeled out Seth to shoot. He did not have to shoot him but he did. I will not bad mouth you or Tommy, I will leave all judgement to God. My son is gone from this earth, he is and forever will be in my heart. I do believe God gives each person up to there last breath or heart beat to come unto him. And I believe by testimony of some at Seths funeral and others, that Seth was making a change and at his last breath he choice Christ, and I do believe he was taken to Heaven by the Angels that Seth said he had been feeling around him for the past 2 weeks before his death. I had been telling Seth if he did not give his heart to Christ he would die and go to hell. I had told him ( because in my heart I knew if he did not quit fighting this would eventually happen)if you are ever in a situation,( and I did mean the one he ended up in) where you can't talk all you have to do is call on the name of the Lord if even in your mind and believe that he is Christ the son of the living God, he will understand your heart and you will be saved. I* believe he did this that night. Now at the funeral the guy who spoke said the year earlier Seth had came forward at a service and was saved. But in my opinion he was not living a life of salvation, That is to be left up to God and not me. But I believe one can turn away from God and lose ones salvation. But one can also come back to God. God has given me several signs at my request to let me know that is just what Seth did. God will take care of the situation with Tommy and I pray Tommy has truly given his heart to God. Yes the man is sick. God is keeping him alive for a reason. FYI whomever you are, I have said a prayer for you. I also hate drugs wheather legal or other wise. They have destroyed a lot of lives. They come straight for the devil. Taking perscription drugs has become Americans favorite past time, well other than the cell phone. People think just because a Dr prescribed them it is fine to take. Well they are if taken in the right manner. I have forgiven Tommy Jack Spray, as God says I should. For if I do not forgive him God in like manner will not forgive me. That doesn't mean I want to be his friend or hang out with him. Nor does it mean I do not want justice for my son. What is the correct justice. Only God knows.
Merry Christmas and may God bless.

Amy, I must correct you on that. The Bible does say thou shall not kill, but should have been translated murder. For kill is what a soliders does, he does not murder. Murder is what Tommy Jake Spray did.
