he was in Duffield to be processed and had a massive heart attack. Recon he was under a lot of stress knowing what he had done and were he was headed. It was his time.

What he had done and where he was headed is none of your business. He probably had a heart attack or however he passed because of people talking about him and slandering his name. Do you know the exact cause of him doing what he did? Do you know what he was thinking about? If so you need to set up a mind reader b/s store that at least you can rip people off with your "guesses"

Tazewell is back asswards. This man killed someone. "KILLED" and was sentenced to 8 years. Hell, I pulled 2 years over a non-violent, no weapons, nothing serious and this court can give a man only 8 years. This town would rather help people die of drug overdoses than give life or the death penalty for killing another human being. Truth Hurts

I'm very sorry for your loss..Your dad was an amazing man. When I was grounded, MY dad used to make me go to the VFW in here in Tazewell as a punishment..Well your dad used to come out there with one of the other members..He made all of it bearable for me..He taught me how to play pool like a pro..I got myself into a bit of trouble back in november, and delivered trays to all the pods while I was in there just so I could see him..He looked really good, and I was looking foward to him serving his sentence and getting to come back home..It's just a shame God saw fit to go on and take him home. I'm extremely sorry for your loss..He was a good man that just made a mistake.

I did not know your father personally, but I do know some of his neighbors and they always spoke highly of him; his kindness and willingness to help his neighbors. None of us will ever know what really happened on that day and we do not need to know. You father rests in the arms of a loving God . I am very sorry for your loss and hope that God gives you peace and comfort during this time. God bless you and keep you safe.

I didn't condone or condemn his actions. I wasn't talking shit about him I was talking shit about this government. If you couldn't get that you need some schooling.

Have some respect, he was someone's father, someone's son and had some good in him despite the bad that happened. His family deserves to love their father's memory during this horrible time, not deal with the hurt of malicious statements made by self righteous idiots. I dont care if it's the truth or not, you arent his judge, and by the sounds of it you are a criminal so you really have nothing to say about anything anyway. If you cant keep your idiocy to yourself, at least have enough sense to know to keep your mouth shut. My condolences to all the family. I didnt know your father, but I do know how it feels to lose a parent and my heart goes out to you.

It seems to me that this twatt needs to keep her mouth shut cause you don't judge me but "I'm a criminal" Shut your mouth I was taking up for myself I don't give a shit about you or whatever happened. Hail Satan!!! LOL

It seems my suspicions are confirmed. Headband81 is not only illiterate, but also a dumbass satan worshiper. That explains the complete lack of manners, and inability to have an intelligent conversation. Go back to your hole, no one cares that you are a loser with no future. That's really not something to be proud of.
