Warning, do not read this if you don’t want to cry.

Earlier today I went to the funeral of four friends and former neighbors. What’s worse than that, the mother and three children were killed by the 16 year old son. The son who was away at college, and the father survived.

They were a wonderful family, whose children were everything to them.

Both Colin (the father) and Danny (the son) spoke at the service. Danny was remarkable: as well as paying tribute to his mom, brother and sisters, he spoke of still loving and caring about CJ (the killer), and said that it feels like they lost him too.

It’s made the national news some, so you may have heard about it. Here’s local coverage of the funeral.


Hug somebody you love.
