This is so tragic and senseless this man was my cousin I loved and still love him alot. I will surely miss him to the idiots who did this to him....I don't know what you were thinking if you were high on drugs or whatever is no excuse. You took away a very special person. He was a father, a son, someone's other half, a great barber, and he was truely my best friend. I can hardly wait til GOD judges you. That will be the greatest day for all of us to pay for the sins we bestow upon each other. To GOD be all the glory! And Raheem Grays no you were truely loved by so many...I myself have been stumped since finding out years ago.
