God Bless him and his family. I did not know him personally but I read pages and pages of threads involving him and SMG tunes. He seemed like such a nice person willing to help everyone, even those not living so close to him, Regardless, there is so much power in prayer and all of us who are of any faith should pray for his soul and for his family. I went through a really trying time in my life about a year ago, and sparing all details and the long story of rebuilding, I will tell you with absolutely certainty that THE ONE THING that got me back to where I am today is a renewed faith in God and lots of prayer. I truly believe that mirales DO happen and that sometimes they simply come in the way of a little "comfort". Pray that his family finds an abundance of it and that he has moved on to a higher, more perfect place with God. Things like this should serve as a reminder to us that we are all humans, we all have feelings and families and that we are all in this together, regardless of race or religion. We are brothers and sisters and fortunate to have the opportunity to know, enjoy and support each other.
