    Not knowing his spiritual condition otherwise, it would seem that indeed he partook from the cup of suffering that Jesus talked about. My hope is that he is indeed with our Father, and that his surviving family and friends will find peace as well.


    I also hope the murderer answers for his crimes.

    There is a special place in heaven for men like that. The whole community suffers when we lose them.
