I’ve about had it with 2013. I can’t reveal a lot of details yet, and may decide to not ever reveal any details depending on how things pan out, but a man who I’ve worked closely with for 7 years, who I considered a valued co-worker and friend, was murdered in his home last night by a home invader. It was not random. Outright, baseless speculation from a few sources is that it was a contract killing that sprang up from his business dealings.
No, I’m not kidding.
This man was harmless. He never said an ill word about anyone or to anyone in the entire time I knew him. He was a good man, with a good heart, and he did not deserve this.
Anyone who’s been following this blog knows why I’m ready to be done with 2013.
This man, my friend, died while trying to calm the intruder down, putting himself between the intruder and his wife so that she could escape upstairs. Once upstairs, she heard the shots. Her husband died in their home. The son of a bitch shot him 6 times. He was a father of a bunch of good guys – grown men now who I still work with and hope to continue working with for years to come. Guys, your Dad will be missed.
May angels guide him home.
