Judgememt day has arrived !

Amen brother Smith! Now All the lying, deceptions, and bugger-jiving have come to the end! No lie can even survive before the God of the universe anyway, so there is no need to try telling one. This man's case has at this point evolved to the Real Supreme Court, where if necessary ...will have Ms. Sikes testifying! A very sad situation!

Prayers for the Sikes family who have courageously endured this horror through the years. Nothing will ever ease their pain and grief, I just hope they know how many people love and care for them. Shelley is gone from this earthly life, but she still lives in the hearts of everyone who knew and loved her. Peace and blessings to the Sikes family.

Mark Ciavaglia, Very well stated. Amen
