    Too many guns all over the place in all countries. It gonna get worse thru out the Festive Season. I do hope his hands were clean and not iinvolved in any guns, drugs and illicit materials across the islands via his work.AS because those you help or refuse to help may get back at you in some form or the other.This seems to be the order of the day. Just a few days ago 2 got shot down in St Kitts with one right infront of his father as they work. There are many gun shotters from various countries living on the islands and are very afraid to return to their countries of origin just because of this.Search them out and deport them all and you may see a difference but the thing is they always left behind someone/persons to carry out their roles.May God help us thru these difficult and dark times, the only light in the world.

    Understand the guy was a decent person, never got into anything. Some say maybe it was a case of mistaken identity. I live in St. Thomas but you are safer staying in Tortola or in the States. St.Thomas is off the chain.

    As days goes by I am still tyring to wrap my head around the entire thing. Never would i thought that i would be saying goodbye so soon. Native Son Inc. would never feel the same anymore. Sitting at work and getting a phone call screaming in office as i forgot where i was when the news was delivered to me was just unbearable and still is. To everyone affected by this tragedy MY DEEPEST CONDOLENCES. I pray that justice is serve for these lil punks out here who have to fight with guns rather than fist. But i know that the bible says Vengeance is his, so i leave it all to him. Sleep In Peace my luv. You Will Truly Be Missed :-*
