First of all dont believe all of what you here, noone won this reguardless of who and what he was he took a life. My fathers and he blew my dads face of that is not a town hero people.
Ray was a nice guy and i feel sorry for his family.But he not only took my dad from me but his three other daughters!! And they was no fight or disagreemeant tnat night.I still cant believe it, I miss my father he was my best friend, and to have to watch my daddy, gasp for air that I could not give to him. And to listen to those two gun shoots that noone hear yeah right! I hope noone ever has to go throught what I did..I wouldn't wish this on anyone!For me what hurts the most is I couldn't save my dad, I thought he could walk on water. You think that you know someone, you really don't. Yes, to everyone else they knew Ray on the outside they did not know him behind close doors..He had mood swings all the time,my father didn't even see it coming, for that im thatkful for. But to watch your dad lay on the floor while the man that shot him just laughing crazily! I wasn't scared all i wanted was for my dad too get up, but he did not..Ray smoked alot of pot that probaly shocks everyone well it's true people,remember I was there all the time not a squatter....
My father had a home in michigan, he was only there, too help take care of me. He was leaving on the 12th to go home, Ray knew this.
Noone stole anything from Ray he gave me money all the time, don't know were he got it, and I did not even ask! No matter he is a cold blooded killer!!!It can happen to anyone,just remember that when you talk about it.The onle people who got hurt by this are the families Mine, my dad brother Doug Slon and Liz Slon 17 years old, becca Slone 15 years old, and the youngest Megan 12 years old. They lost something noone can make up for..Like I said I was my fathers pride and joy, his Bambino and I was his 1 fan and still am. He did nothing to desirve what happened that horrible night. All he did was speak his mind when someone insulted him, I think everyone does that.I know I do, I want too be just like him, and I will he didn't let anyone say bad shit to him. While he was at the lake he saved Bob which is Rays neighbor one night, because he was so drunk at 1:00a.m.If it had not been for my dad he would have drowned..And they thought the two gun shots, was a dog bone falling of the table.
He told people three days before he killed my dad noone did anything!!!!!!!!!!WHY PEOPLE WHY Hopefully carma comes back around..
Noone is perfect my dad was not Ray was not and neither am I.But my advice to everyone is don't take the next day or anything for granted. I did and I didn't get to tell my daddy I loved him that night.I still wish he would have shot me too, and I wish I could have taken the two bullets for him..This was know 9mm people this was a high powered rifle, shot to a distance of 8 or 9 feet awa

i knew david slone and i have to say he had his moments where i wanted him to just go but then he always found a way to bring u up when life brought u down. david brought a lot of hardships to his girls liz, becca and megan. but he also brought good memories too. those babies will have to live with this the rest of their life because of a certain somebodys choices. i can point fingers and blame this person but it will not change a thing. my cousins have been robbed of their father. life isnt fair and i have tried as well as their mother to instill that life is what you make of it. i have my own opinions to this situation and i dont think this is the right time nor place to put it out there. but you know who you are and i dont even have to speak your name. but you know what you have done to them and all effected. god has a place for people like you and i cant wait to see the day of your judgement.

Megan , if this is you I love u what Katie wrote was wrong you'll always be in my heart dad loved u . It always hurt him that noone would call, and he couldn't come home, too be with his children,you know this would not have not happened if your mom and liz would have let him .I'm sorry for u and Becca I love her so much, but the faulth lies on your mothers home turf. Even though I care about her she needs too grab ahold of Liz and slow her butt down, or dad will be waiting on your mom For letting here get hurt .All he wanted was to get her away from all the bad shit she started doing when she was 12 years old, u know this .You are old enought now too see through the crap they played u with. He wasn't a bad person he was our daddy and my best friend and soul mate . He was all I dreamed off when he was with my wonderful sisters , then your mom didn't want me there, so she kicked us out. Daddy didn't suffer Megan that is what they told me when I picked up his things. Sissy I love you u can e-mail me at [email protected] OK u still have me dad made me promise that ok, whenever u want me too come and get u just let me knnow sissy's ok I got my own place now and I still cry everynight and look up at the sky for the brightest star and you know what sissy thats daddy watching over us ....It will always hurt im going through alot just defending him. Im going too write a book about dads life and all of us , it does not matter what happened in the past dad would want us too hold our head up. U saw how hard he was on me because he wanted me too be strong , and it is hard but I am trying really hard. U never know what life s curve ball going to trough but dad did thats why he wanted too come home too you guys. Now I know not too take things for granted, because I took that dad would always be there, and the prank that Liz played in the summer on me , was not cool. Because what she made up came true, but the gun was in another person hand . and it was a m1 which no one deserves too die like are father did , he faught maggie , for us .I coulnd't save him, im so sorry if you need me let me know. Hang in there sissy we still have to shave are heads for daddy on your 18th b-day ok. I LOVE YOU AND SO DID DADDY..BUT U KNOW THAT U ALWAYS KNEW WHEN HE WAS SICK, OR HAD NOTHING TOO EAT, AND U WAS SO LITTLE ON THE PHONE, BUT U KNOW DONT DO ANYTHING LIKE LIZ DOES, god I love her just wish she see throught the fog and stop letting guys and dope get in her way thats what dad would want..

no one has anything too say now , because im computer smart enought ..to find out the location of the computer of were u r writing this mean stuff. about a great man none of u knew and if u met him tomorrow, u wouldn't believe what these people would say. my father wouldn't and did not care what people thought of him ,what did was his family .not able too be with him dew to his lung condition and other resons. if u said something mean to him , he put the truth back on u so fast. so im alot like him , but i care i always have noone will speak badly of him , near or infront of me at all or there will be problems.

I am very sorry for you loss I know how it is to lose your father. I did not lose my father to a brutal murder I lost my father to a massive heart attack and I kinda know what you are going through but I have to respond to the last thing that you wrote to your sister. The way I understand it as maybe you are going to try to take your own life, maybe I misunderstood. But if I am right you need to talk to someone. You need to be strong for your siblings because they need you because it is very hard around the holidays I know it is for me. I hope you get through this day because I know that it is your fathers birthday and you need to focus on the good things not on the bad it will make it a little easier. My prayers are with just always remember that time eases the pain but will not take it away.

First off suicide is the easy way out. Anyone who takes another man's life except in combat is no hero but a coward and not a man at all. And there is no sense in saying a prayer because anyone who knows anything regarding religion or the bible knows that suicide and murder are large sins and your soul is doomed. If any prayer should be said it should be for Elizabeth, Rebecca, and Megan. The loves of their farther's life. And their farther may be gone in body but I'm sure he is still very much with them in there hearts and in the memories they share. At the end of the night I pray these three girls rest easy knowing their farther is watching over them. Family is very important, don't let you're farthers death be in vain know that both people involved will get theirs when all is said and done. So may god bless...I'll pray for you girls

My fathers life was taken on 9-11. This will be the first Christmas with out his giggle or the sound of his voice! Its not easy to set here with the thought of the people who took his life. When the time comes things will be down. I laugh when i hear Tanya say daddy's only baby girl, cause im pretty sure he has three other daughters that all have his last name, unlike one.. So who knows who's she is!!! Not to be mean i just know what was done and i know who didn't show up to MY fathers funeral... But was so upset over the whole thing. The same person who left my and My father to leave with ray... Took off with the man she said killed my father. I have the blood stained carpet with me every day, where my father last laid his head. It doesnt match up. There wasnt enough blood there to kill someone. I lost more blood losing my child then there was on the walls and floor put together. My father was not stealing from Ray and neither was Tanya. i cant stand her but i will say that. Ray gave every dime to her. I was given money by him myself.. All that man talked about was killing my father. How he would take care of me so i wouldnt have to go back to my mothers, I told him he was fucking nuts. There wouldnt come a time i would pick him over my father. Then he looked at me and said ill just wait until you leave and go back to michigan. I left in aug and my father was killed in sep. you do the math... I dont mean to set here and bad mouth any one but now there are three more girls out in the world with out a father to look over them. Ray was always looked at like a hero but a man who takes a life over nothin is nothing.. Im glad he killed himself. yea he may have been a victim but it was only because Tanya.. Not my father. My dad was leaving that coming Tuesday to come home to us.. Why kill someone if they we're leaving or is that why he was killed. Because he realized where he was needed. With his three daughters that cant take care of them selfs yet. Instead of being up a 27 years old ass. Because she cant take care of herself and needs everyone else to do it. Its time to grow up TANYA. To let you know its nothing but a big slap in the face to be living with you mother now.. you know the one women you hate the most for what she did to daddy. But i guess if shes feeding you and hands you money to fun off and get high on then im glad your ok...lol

God Bless you all sounds like you need help, you can't keep dwelling on the past if you want to have a future
I feel sorry for a few of you (not many)
Have a drink or do DRUGS that sounds like a cure for your pain...dumb....
