All for a few bucks... murder a nice man, beat him and then cut his throat. For what, money? Well they will answer for this but it won't bring the young man back. Yes my condolences to the Gammage family. To have this happen at Christmas time.

I know some people ask why God would allow this to happen but it's not God doing this, it's man. He gave us free choice, some do good, some bad, but it's our fault, not His.
