  1. My deepest 💔😢😞😔condolences 🙏🏿to you mama. The child you carried for 9 months, birthed after many hours of intense labor and raised is gone. I’m so sorry for your loss. So sorry. Who feels it knows it.

  2. Sincere condolences to the family. Seek comfort from the Creator. He alone has ALL the answers.

    • And the name of that “Creater” is JESUS. He is the great Comforter. There is so much to be learned from all of this. There are no winners.

  3. To put into words how I feel about your passing is indescribable. I feel that I am being thrown into a time warp when you were at college. You were one of my many precious gems as you would remind me that you were often misunderstood. I will miss your sermons about the love of God, your ability to defend those who were being taken advantage of, and your strange ability to comfort those who needed comforting. Your journey in the last couple of years was not an easy one for you. To Verel’s grandmother, he loved you so much! You made him happy when skies were gray. I pray and hope that you and your family will be comforted during this dark and sad time. You will forever be in my heart and will always be remembered. Goodbye, my son.

  4. I’m confused. I understand that his life had ended and as such is of great sadness to his family which everyone can respect.

    Was he not on remand for murder though? I don’t know the background.

    People seem to be awfully nice. Or was he not proven guilty?

    • He murdered a cop..
      He supposedly has mental issue

      As everyone sees it ….an eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth.

      Even if he needed medical attention ( assuming) the FACT THAT HE. MURDERED A SOFT QUIET COP UNDESERVING OF BEING MURDERED …most guards would turn a blindeye and im sure they did JUST THAT …bcos hes a cop killer…

      Im sure hospital workers…..prison guards were all up t their eyeballs with him.

      • What does he know about the blue building? What happened there that caused the poor guy to snap? You think those who wear the ring with the compass and the square don’t know?

  5. She looks like she also has mental issues….when her son murdered the officer did she ever spoke to his wife and their child ..
    Did she try consolling them …ooooohhh. …im sorry its ALL about her son and her wailling for her son that we ALL should have sympathy for …..WHAT ABT CLIFTONS MOTHER …..
