Earl was my step dad but he was my dad I dont belive it was self defence he would have never pulled a gun uless he was afraid for his own life he was the most generous giving caring person in the world I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU!!! As for the man who did this how do you run away and shoot someone who is behind you on top of that someone who is half your size with breathing problems.Earl the last time i talked to you were planning a trip to see me snd your grandsons here and we will all cherish every memory thank you for being my dad you didnt have to be but you did sadly missed

If Earl was such a fine man, why had be been in prison? Is it not true that the woman he was married to (the shooter's mother), that he had got hooked up with her former husband in prison...then Earl got out and hunted up his prison buddy's wife and married her? I'm not trying to be a Smart-A$$ about this...I'm just askin'. Why did Earl serve time? Is the former husband still in the slammer?

K Robin, if Earl's wife shot and killed her former husband, then pray tell how was her former husband in jail with Earl? Or did the shooting take place after he (former hubby) and Earl both got released? Whew...sounds like the whole gang of 'em are felons!
