Press Release Following John's Death

I told Sean what happened. I showed him the picture of his father on the cover of the paper and explained the situation. I took Sean to the spot where John lay after he was shot. Sean wanted to know why the person shot John if he liked John. I explained he was probably a confused person. Sean said we should find out if he was confused or if he really meant to kill John. I said that was up to the courts. He asked what court - a tennis court or a basketball court? That's how Sean used to talk with his father. They were buddies. John would have been proud of Sean if he had heard this. Sean cried later. He also said, "Now Daddy is a part of God. I guess when you die you become much more bigger because you're part of everything."

I don't have much more to add to Sean's statement. The Silent Vigil will take place December 14th at 2 P.M. for ten minutes.

Our thoughts will be with you.
