    This low life murdered my friend.
    I don't wish harm upon people, but seeing his face makes me feel deep down inside that he deserves all the sadness he has created, 3 fold. He lives, while bright souls have passed on. Its heartbreaking.

    Makes me sad that the presence of your friend ended in such a sad way. You know more than most that this person who did this will carry that karma and sadly brought it into his experience. I send you some love, you know your friend is sure to pop up in one way or another. Stay strong beautiful one <3
