~~Horror In My Family~~

A very horrible thing happened in my family this week. A very loved man who was my uncle was murdered in his home. An eccentric 70 year old man who loved his kids and grandkids, who was a professor at BYU for 30+ years, who would give the shirt off his back if someone needed it, had his throat cut ear to ear so some assholes could have the money and guns he kept at his home. The only 2 things that are consoling about this is that his wife was not home and he is now with my cousin Janet who died in an accident 21 years ago.
How can people do things like that to each other?? People have said it could be druggies looking to score money or things to sell to get drugs, but I have my own opinion. I wish I could say more about my opinion, but the investigation is ongoing and we really can't talk much about it. I will say though, that my heart is heavy and my stomach in knots thinking about what happened and who I truly feel is involved. I hope I am wrong! I hate having these thoughts and I can't even really say why the thoughts came into my head, but they did.
My heart is breaking for my cousin Julie who has to bury her father. He may have been 70, but you never would have guessed it by looking at him. He was young and active and taken from this life way too soon.
Everybody please pray for the police to come to a quick conclusion to this horrible situation. Pray that my gut feelings are wrong~ I have never wanted to be wrong so bad in my whole life! Pray that his kids make it through this and stay strong. And most of all pray that things like this stop happening before we end up exterminating our own race.
If you want to read the story you can go here or here, or his obituary here.
