Thank you, Albert. It's very sad, indeed. The young man was killed in a building across the steet from where he lived with his 3 small kids, and the children's mom. The place where he was shot is a bad building, squeezed in on a small block, between 2 Liquor Stores... drunks sprawled out on the sidewalk, and in the alley behind the building, are a common sight. This is kitty corner to the bus terminal, and the Frisco Bakery... The victim wasn't a gang banger, and he didn't tag. He was a wild, lone wolf type. I didn't frequently associate with him, because I heard that he did not make honest money, if you catch my drift. I never was attracted to that kind of a lifestyle. I don't like going to jail... I understand though, for whatever reason, some do like it, and pursue it. Tragic... The mystery is, why was he in that building? Who was he going to meet there, at that early hour? Someone for sure knows... problem is, when you ride alone, you don't share secrits, and poor Henry's secrit may have died with him.

I saw Henry 2 nights before he was killed. As always he came up to me, and gave me his friendly greetings. In all the years I've known him, he NEVER once treated me like anything other than a bro... I can honestly say that myself, our friend Greg, B, & Earl are greatly saddened by his murder. Henry's death will better be avenged, as you say, if they are taken off the streets, and put in The State's Death Chamber ASAP. Peace out- Anyone who knew the "real" Henry, deeply mournes his loss, and we all loved and cared about him. My sincere condolences for your loss.
