This is such a tragedy and I am at a loss.  My brother has lost his best friend and now Sue is without her husband/best friend.  Many people have lost a wonderful man in their lives.


De Ann February 22, 2010 7:53 pm (Pacific time)

This has all been so senseless. My brother now is without his best friend and Sue is without her husband/best friend. Many people have been devastated by this whole thing.
