“Well I still have hope of seeing you guys in the land of no tears someday. I m missing you people. Some memories will never ends ,some tears will never dry my love for you people will never die. Vengeance is from the Lord ....Mmmmmm sleep well my two brothers. Forever remain in my memory. Charlie boy and Samuel boy.”
