Guy that killed my brother
#1
I just found out a few minutes ago that the fellow that pulled the trigger on my brother died in his prison cell last night. He was found dead when the guards did their morning checks. He was 16 when he went in. He was 42. When I went to his first parole hearing which was earlier this year I was glad to hear how he had changed, but I do not believe anyone should get out at their first hearing. He had made a lot of progress including finishing high school & learning HVAC I think it was. He had kept clean over the last 15 years or so & if he had kept that up I was going to recommend his release at his next hearing in 2022. Please pray for the repose of his soul. I hope he made it to purgatory.

I'm glad to hear that he reformed himself to some degree. That's more that can be said of most prisoners. I'll add him to my intentions

I offered a Pater, Ave, and Requiem for his soul, and another for your brother.

Hey, It's only what we're supposed to do. He HAD done a turn-around so it's not like I thought he'd just do something like that again. He's in God's hands now.

This is probably the most inspiring post I've ever read in a forum.  You're a good man, Dave Parrott.

I'll be praying for this man's soul, as well as for your brother.
