Impact of a single bullet

Original post made on May 22, 2008

Family, community feels the loss of a long-time restaurant owner killed by an unknown gunman

John Edward Farmer probably didn't have enough time to register the muzzle flash before the bullet struck him dead. Nobody's talking about who might have pulled the trigger, although family and friends talk about the man and the loss they feel. Photos by Veronica Weber and David Cenzer/Palo Alto Weekly.

As me being a relative, mu uncle will be well missed but never forgotten. He will be with me in my heart forever. And I can say this that when enough of us loose our loved one's, then we want to do something about it, let's wake up and come together now and bring all this madness to an end, before it hit's your home. I have lived in EPA for 30+ years and never have I seen so much hatred and greed. My heart hurts for both sides the victim and the assulter, cause there are two lives that are lost. Come on you guys wake up!
Prayer works if nothing else.
