  1. I was in jail with this young man in 2017.
    He was charged with breaking into vehicles and other charges. He informed me that he had stolen guns from several cars. He also told me that not all of them were recovered and that he had hidden them. Even though I prayed for him, he continued on the path of self destruction! How horribly sad…
