    Moe, I can not tell you how sad this news is to me. I just returned to work today and all I can say is You Are Loved by Many people. I can’t say,”I know how you feel…. because I don’t. I don’t want to know”. He was not my Son and I can’t get myself together. Know that you are Loved and you have support from every direction. If you need me or want to talk 757-920-2355. Love you! Be strong.
