  1. The victim is a lifelong buddy of mine and im in total shock and awe that someone can be so selfish as to seriously injure 2 people over selfishness and a failure to be a real father when the time was needed. I send my prayers to my buddy Matthew and his family I love you guys and I am praying everyday for his recovery.
