Death even in Food

As I have blogged on here a few times.........my husband is responsible for a team of over 550 Union Pacific Locomotive employees. Of course I haven't met most of them but the supervisors/foreman generals/local chairman etc. are people that I have met at various events. I am not the best person w/names but I always remember a face(s). Of course..........there are 550 of them and only 1 of me.

One of the first restaurants we attended a function at was Cock of the Walk
This was for a retirement dinner for one of my husbands supervisory employees. Across from me sat this nice couple in their early-mid 50's. Very quiet and kind of kept to themselves but did chat with me on and off through all the noise. The man was even nice enough to pour me some sweet tea. This man was a general foreman for my husband.

Last night around midnight we got an email message from one of my husband's 2nd shift supervisors with the word "rumor" in the subject. Unfortunately, this "rumor" turned out to be true. Sherwood Couple Found Dead in Missouri

No one deserves this.......and especially not this couple. Although I did not know them well....just in passing during some events at restaurants, I remembered their faces and how nice and welcoming they were when they met me. I know that Tom will be greatly missed by his Union Pacific peers. I hope that their children somehow find comfort and can move forward after this tragedy that should have never happened.

I was lucky enough to share catfish, hushpuppies, collard greens, fried pickles and sweet tea with the Estes' and I hope that Tom and Jill Estes are resting in peace and I hope they FRY THE MUTHER FUCKER WHO DID THIS!

UPDATE:SCUMBAG CAUGHT Nicholas Troy Sheley, 28, of Sterling, was arrested Tuesday evening in Granite City, Illinois, just east of St. Louis, Special Agent Ross Rice told CNN.

Such a sad story, and what an icky feeling to have something this violent hit so close to home. So sorry to read about that poor couple.

Just a follow up, I heard Natalie Morales talking about this case on the Today show this morning ... thank God they caught this guy.

Can you believe 8 people dead in 3 days??? What the hell is wrong with people??? I say they string him up in town naked and let him get a blow job repeatedly from an alligator. I will run for President on the Platform that murderers, ,rapists and child molesters get Alligator Blow Jobs for punishment!!! Death penalty is too easy for these monsters......they need to suffer!

That is insane. I'm so glad someone has been arrested. They finally just arrested someone in the death of my friend Lindsay, which was back in February.
