I am so sorry to see this. I only read the article but it hit home much to hard for me. It wasn't a son, it was my ex fiances parents, they were murdered in their home 2 days after my own mother died. Please, just keep the faith. I don't know what happened, and you don't have to explain it to anyone! People dont need to pour salt in this huge open wound in your heart. Just know that there are others out there that are victims of violent crimes. It is hard...but there are alot of resources out there for us. Free therapy sessions, assistance in bills. There is so much assistance out there to help you when you feel like you can't go one. If you want, you can talk to me as another victim of violent crime, we will find a way to get through this. It is comming up on three years for me after loosing my mother, mike and julie all in the same weekend. It does get easier after time, but you will never ever forget. But just remember your son as he was, and not what has become. I know it is hard, but you will find comfort in prayer and knowing there are others you can talk to as well. My prayers are with you hun...I know it is so tough to even get out of bed, but you got to do it! Be strong dear, we are all behind you!

Thank you for the kind words hun. And yes, an instance like this will cripple a person. But you got to stay strong for your son and make sure the person responsible gets what they deserve. We were dealt a huge injustice with our situation, and I pray that it doesn't happen to you. It is sad to see how the legal system really handles these issues when they come about. Please, use your energy to bring yourself up out of this dark ash as a pheonix would at its rebirth. I appreciate your thoughts for me, it is truly touching, but it is time for you to have comfort in settling into this new part of life. Not a life that you have ever wanted to have, but one that you have been dealt. I will say this, even though you may never ever know why, God would never bring anything into your life that you couldn't handle. It is a huge burden now, but I promise you, it will make you such a strong individual in the long run. Maybe, later in life, you will come to find yourself in a situation as I just did, and you can speak a kind word and even help someone else in their tragic loss. I know that there is nothing that anyone could ever do to make this any easier for you, but in hard times, there are others doing exactly what you are doing. There is always someone to talk to, even if it just may be a prayer. But remember cherish the good times and become a much more sound and stronger person because of the bad...
Hun, I don't even know your name, but from one soul on this earth to another..."This too shall pass" We will never forget, but we will learn how to live again, and live stronger because of it! I wish there was something else that I can do, but all there is to do is help you and your family hold your heads up, and pray that there be justice served in the name of your son. Always Love, Never Harm! Namaste' friend...

Oh wow, you think your going to break me and hurt me with the things you have to say. We were still together when this happened, didnt break up for a year or so after. But no, it was their friend that had gotten on meth thinking he would get inheritance money from her mother's passing but alas, they already re-invested it into their farm. How about you be a little more considerate. And it did crush me, considering I just buried my own mother the Easter sunday that we got the call. I was already to the point of not being able to get out of my bed because me at the time, a 22 year old female, just lost her best friend on this earth; Had to see her in that hospital bed with wires and tubes everywhere, no life in her eyes anymore, no voice, no sound, no movement at all. The soul and life totally gone from her body. The woman that brought me into this world, taught me just about everything that I knew had turned into nothing more than a lifeless body. How dare you, I bet you have never had anything bad happen to you, that no one around you has ever died. Or you just dont have a heart...one of those. But I will tell you, your soul will be so lost whenever you do. the pain and agony that you will feel will be uncontainable!
Oh, and as far as Oprah goes, never watch that shit, she just goes way over the top.
I am just speaking from life experience, you sound like your just talking out of your a$$. Really, try and be a little more descreet with how you really feel! Because people like me, people who are considerate and care, don't want to hear it. I would actually love to know wether or not you could actually say this to my face, and to actually know you. Why you ask, because I would want to see your reaction when something like this happens to you. But more so, I would still be there for you out of the kindness of my heart and because I know it sucks tremendously. You wouldn't deserve my comfort and kind words, but it is just what people do when things like this happen....

I am so sorry about this...I never thought anyone would say the things that have been said like this on here especially with you asking them not to disrespect :( I am so so sorry. Even after all is said and done dear, I hope you can find some comfort for now in the kinds words that have been said. Don't let Mitch, get under your skin, it seems like he is gunning for my hurt feelings more than anyones. Apparently I watch too much Oprah and am a Drama Queen. Lol. But you too will be able to look past mean hurtful people such as that. He/she will too have to one day attempt to rise from the ashes as I have had to do and as you are doing now. They will all someday understand and hopefully for their sake change their ways. Take care of yourself, and always know that somewhere out here in this crazy world, you have a friend in me.

I also agree to the freedom of speech thing also, but then again, you cannot have freedom of speech that consist of verbage being libel, slander, defamation of character or malicious falsehoods. Topix posting a few months ago about the 'cyber bullying" and how it is illegal. People have been suing or getting sued so much over crap that is said on this site. That is just another thing to keep in mind. Just saying. I am backing out of the whole topic because this has just gotten way out of hand...cant stand to even look at it anymore. just wanted to give my last 2 cents.

Its none of your business what kind of business my brother was in..he was great at what he did, Tyler is the one who ran a sucky business my brother doesnt let no one mess him over so Travis was just lettin the guy know what was up an he knew that tyler had f**ked him over an Tyler was a b**ch an had to use a gun...an about him bein a father he was a amazin father that loved his daughter more then anything in the world an the money he made was all for his daughter,you shouldnt talk about someone who is dead.. talk about me all you want but you dont need to talk about someone that has died that is very disrepectful an actually tyler was the one that messed with the wrong guy because my brother could handle his own an didnt have to use a gun therefore that shows that travis was a badass motherf**ker that didnt use a weapon an tyler was a pussyb*tch...he may think hes free but its not over by a long shot.. you dont know the whole story nor will you ever so just leave it alone

Mitch you can say whatever you want however, in order to be a decent person one should treat others as they would be treated. We are not the ones who were involved in this whole thing we are the family that lost our love one and as for trash your the only one coming across as trash by attacking people you don't know and putting an opinion about things you have not a clue about.....your absolutely the most single minded person I believe I have ever talked to and that is saying alot.
