I wrote earlier ... there are still so many despicable racist comments about Kandi and A.J. ... #21, #50, #51, #53, #74.

Please keep an eye on this.
thanks

KANDI>>>

God bless you and A.J's children AND their Mothers! This is so sad. A man working to support his kids and some violent SOB just ruined a whole lot of children's lives. The pain this will cause them their entire lifetime is horrible. I am so sorry Kandi, we all know you loved him dearly. I liked him! Stay strong, hold on through the pain. GOD IS WITH YOU.

John H. (8) to bad it wasn't you that was there and killed. Then it would have been one more less of your kind. That would have been good.
