Was on the way home from my Aunt's house in MD when my wife checked our messages...my mom called and was kinda upset. I called on the cell, but got the answering machine. I was in the bathroom when the phone wrang and I hear my wife making small talk, and then..."are you okay?" WTF? Then Erica comes to the door, knocks and say's "open the door it's your mom". We say high, and as soon as I ask what's wrong she starts balling. Through ther tears I hear her say "Do you remember Kevin?" (No shit I remember him, I saw him 2 weeks ago) "Yeah" her "His mom shot and killed him last night, and then shot herself." WTF???? Kevin was about 40 years old, and mentally handicapped. Not completely retarded, just slow. He was married and they had just moved into a new home. His wife (also handicaped)has all kinds of problems including severe epilepsy. Apparently Kevin's mom was manic depressive and left a note saying that "This world was no place for her or Kevin". His wife is a complete mess and my mom isn't doing too much better. (My mom met them while driving a van for Steps, an employment agency for the handicapped, a few years ago and they've been friends since. Please pray for Kevin and his mom's souls. May the LORD have mercy on them, and may the living be comforted. Thanks. PONY_DRIVER

Sorry to hear about this tragedy. Our prayers go out to them and you all. I've worked with a number of people that are low IQ and knowing that, work the best they can. They are some of the nicest people you'd want to know. God rest their souls.

The best prayers are those that come from the heart, and are sincere.

In August of 1975 my Dad shot and killed my Mom and then shot and killed himself. No words will ever change what happened then or to your friends recently. Nothing will ever make it right. Trust that the Lord has his way to change them NOW. Time........is the only thing that will make it change........ It won't ever be better....... It will just change...... "Trust in the LORD for he is good, and his mercy endures forever." Talk to the ones that you love......Tell them how you feel about them...... Do it soon! You may not have tomorrow. Love is wonderful.......anger kills. Pick one.
