A very heavy heart

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668 GREC# 169695

Tomorrow I'll attend the services for a friend from high school, taken too soon.  I'm a person of faith and when I've lost friends I've usually been at peace because of my faith.  This time I'm not at all feeling peace, I'm angry. My dear friend was murdered. It's been a long time since a murder touched my life this personally. I just feel beyond sad and at the same time furious.  

I am hoping that saying good-bye will give me some closure and let me start to heal. But at the same time I know that I will follow the case and if there is a trial follow the trial. So in reality I'm not sure when the healing process will occur.  But rest in peace Greg.  You will be missed my friend.  I'll see you again someday... and I'll miss you until then.

Laura Cerrano me to with literal pain

Endre Barath, Jr. I so hope his daughter is taking his kitties vs. me not knowing.  He no longer lived locally and sadly it was a domestic violence occurence that tragically ended his life last week, so someone will need to take the cats.

Tammy Lankford, - With heavy heart... 

It has to be so hard. No words can bring consolation. Too raw! Too soon! Too cruel! 

I am so sorry for this terrible, terrible loss. I will be thinking of you, especially on funeral day. Please promise me that if the pain gets to deep, think about your grandchild and think positive thoughts. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Nina Hollander he was someone I sometimes worried about, but certainly not ever in my craziest thoughts this... it still doesn't seem real. It's just not ... well I really don't have words that express my shock.

Sharon Lee thank  you Sharon.

That is very sad, I never enjoy hearing about someone being murdered, especially when I know of someone that cares deeply for them.
