I am unsure what being an alcholic has to do with being murdered. Don Ulbricht was loved and admired by many and the person he hurt the most was himself... he was NOT a "known violent alcholic". It is very easy to hide under an assumed name to make ugly untrue statements at a time an entire family is in mourning with this whole tragedy.
While I pray for this family healing - I will pray that your judgemental ways are healed also as Don would want that.

It is very suspicious when the only beneficiary of the will files for probate before the funeral.

Mathew 7:1 "Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measures you use, it will be measured to you."

Titus 3:2 "to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true humility toward all men."

Kim Ulbricht's testimony at his funeral should have alleviated any gossip in this matter. Don Ulbricht was an outstanding man, he will be greatly missed.

Ashley,Sharon and Alan - Yes, we know who is writing these ugly things. It was the written and verbal wishes of Don - your father as you now want to claim - that you were excluded of everything as you cut him out of your life 15 years ago by your choice not his. He had it written in his will that you didn't wish to have anything to do with him during his life and he did not want his wife whom he adored to have to deal with either of you after his death. It is your actions alone that caused your exculsions. Not that is needed to be public information that the will HAD to be done before the funeral but you people - Sharon, Ashley and Alan - were causing turmoil and Don's wishes had to be carries out - so why is that suspicious? The person soley responsiable for this horrfic tragedy was arrested and charged and I can assure they are not listed in the will either so there is nothing suspicious about anything that happened or afterwards EXCEPT your actions and vague and ugly insinuations. I do pray that Sharon and Ashley you can live your life with the consequences of your actions you chose and hopefully learn from them. I know we ALL prayed for you and will continue to do so.

Please do not try to accuse me of being two little girls who were victims and unable to make any choice.

I am so sorry that I allowed some scumbag to make me stoop to their level of public humiliation. I truely am sorry and have done what I should have done when I first saw these posts and contacted the Texas Rangers. They say they can find the ip address of this poster and since this poster seems to have some information they are wanting to give out maybe the Texas Rangers should hear it.

What does that have to do with anything? Did Mr Ulbricht pull a gun and shoot himself? Twice? You should be ashamed of yourselves for making an statement like that!

And to the poster who commented on the will be filed before the funeral.. What does it matter to you? And how would you know this? Do you work for his attorney? Do you work in county courthouse? Sounds like sour grapes from here...

Prayers that his widow can somehow put her life back together and move on with out having to deal with angry family members trying to drag a mans name through the mud!

I was shocked and saddened by the news of Don's passing and I am SO angry about the Way he died.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and family.
I know in my heart that you're in a better place now Don, but I will miss you, my friend. May God rest your soul.

It's hard to believe that after a man is violently murdered, that someone would post such meaningless and untrue things about the murdered man. Don was a very loving and caring man to all of his friends, family and anyone else that he came in contact with. Yes he had a disease but, he and God were working through it.

A lot has been said about Mr. Albricht's character. I did not know him, therefore i cannot comment on that. Frank, on the other hand, is very near and dear to me. I have known him for a long time and he has always been a very kind and compassionate person. Many people have commented on that judgement should not be passed about Mr. Albricht, only to turn around and pass judgement on Frank. I can testify that Frank is of sound and sober mind. I cannot imagine anything that could have incited him to shoot anyone, short of the defense of his life or the life of a loved one. I am not claiming to know what transpired that night. Any input on the subject from anyone who was not there that night is pure speculation.
Tragedy has befallen both sides of this hapless misfortune. One life has been lost and another hangs in the balance. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who has been affected.

I knew Don, good man from a good family ,and I was unaware of his struggles. God knows we all have our burdens. A family has endured the loss of one man and another whose life may be spent behind bars. Is this really the forum to hash out this kind of personal business and heartache? There are two sides to every story and sometimes the entire truth comes out, sometimes it doesn't. We'll have to trust the justice system on that and I, for one, will pray for the families and that justice is served. I believe that's the best all of us can do.

Although I have not spoken or communicated with Don or Bill for many years, I have always appreciated their parents for their care and have valued the wonderful childhood/ friendship of Don and Bill.
I am saddened to hear about Don's passing and extend my best wishes to his family. Don was a great friend and a fine man. Period.
