“These past few weeks have been some of the most hard, tiring, emotional and trying times I've ever ran up against in my thirty years on this earth as I lost a friend a role model and most importantly a brother. And tonight as we celebrated and mourned my brother for all he accomplished in his career as a Person a Nebraskan and a Husker in Lincoln some (s--- bag) was back here in our home town breaking into my house and my vehicles probably seeing our family as a easy target as we were all in Lincoln.”
