    Be not envious of evil men, nor desire to be with them, for their hearts devise violence, and their lips talk of trouble. By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches. A wise man is full of strength, and a man of knowledge enhances his might, …

    Romans 8:14

    My son was a right and just man. He had more friends than anyone I know, he is missed by many and I truly loved he. I love you Son
