What a horrible shame!! My sincerest condolences to his wife, and family. His memory will live on, as he was an honorable man, having served two tours in 'Nam, and having an active life by giving to others. God Bless Him. How very, very sad.

So sad. These things are happening far too often. (Even tho one time would be one too many, but it dies seem to be on the increase) How come it is always the good people who are the victims? I still have not come across an instance of an abuser of animals or children etc who just happens to be attacked by these thugs.

People are just too lazy to work and go for the weaker and vulnerable people. Raping an 88 year old woman and stealing a few pounds gets me.
