The writer(concerned voice) has said it all. I feel honored to have known Rev. Strong. The service brought people together and healed some of the feelings of loss. We laughed and wept together and honored a person, who made everyone he met feel good.
Rev. Strong was one of the best people I have ever known. He was funny and loving. He gave away most everything he had to benefit others. The policeman and the Times should apologize for labeling the man possibly gay. It is almost as if being gay might add up to actually deserving the treatment he received by his killers. And the killers are misunderstood? Didn't get government help? I hope they don't get out of this crime, because if they are allowed in the community, they will do the same thing again. If you can't prove it, then you shouldn't print it. You took the time to prove everything you wrote about the killers, but you failed the victim. Try to list all the good things David Strong did for the community. These can be proved.
