    Both families, seriously... Oh wait you know the murderer, now I see why you have sympathy for his family as well. You know it's hard for me to see "Jason" as a good person seeing as how he has chosen to get drunk over the legal limit and get behind the wheel two times prior to the time he killed the love of my life. Angry, yes!!! Howie was an amazing, godly man and did not deserve what Jason had in store for him. Now he gets off, and gets to live his life like normal. Your friend Jason stole my life from me, and I will not rest until his life is ruined as well... You can bet that
