    May she rest in peace. I can’t imagine losing my only child to senseless violence. I remember being at Proof’s funeral and seeing how devasted she was. Now they are together again. I hope they’re both happy.

        What’s sad is that people actually believe the story that was portrayed by the media/police. It’s very easy to forget that a weapon was never recovered, nor were ballistics ever confirmed. Don’t believe everything you read or hear. There’s a lot more to the incident then what was being reported–information that is unknown to the public.

    May she rest in paradise and condolences to her family and friends. Hopefully if there’s an issue with her arrangements amongst the family,Marshall got them.
