    No, just wondering why you would confess to knowing people like this. Doesn't anybody feel the least amount of shame anymore? I mean seriously, if I were you, I'd be keeping that little factoid to myself.

    Like it or not, people are judged by the company they keep, and you just anounced that you associate with the dregs of society.

    Think about it.

    Just because I know these people through a relative doesn't make me guilty be association. Woke up throwing stones, did we?

    Whatever the reason, its a sad case. We need the Lord in our life all the time and just maybe some of the these thing would not happen. Continue to pray for all involved.

    I know this guy. When I lived in Fayetteville this was my best friends cousins, husband. They had a volitile relationship. They got together after she went to work for him and his wife as a maid. He left his wife for her. He was in the army. They were always fighting. She was a pot/crack head and would leave for days and come back and he would have other women at the house. She has stabbed him in the past.
