RE: [TexasCzechs] OBIT and note: Louis F. Wick
My niece Kelly is married to Gerardette Haas' son Rodney. Gerardette and her Mrs. Wick were on a retreat when this happened. The suspects (the 22 year old man and the 15 year old girl) have perpetrated a horrific crime. The whole thing is beyond senseless. I feel so bad for the family. I can't imagine having to deal with one murder, much less two murders. I am thoroughly disgusted and outraged.
