I had met Capt. Herb Emory many times doing what he did often: giving of himself and his time to aRead More lot of community activities. I also had the pleasure of meeting his lovely wife, Karen, when they were both at the Arbor Place Mall for Olympic medalist, Elana Myers' most recent celebration. My prayers and condolences go out to her and the Emory family and friends, as I, too, try to get past the shock of his passing. Heaven gained what we have lost: a really sweet man with a wonderful sense of humor, who got many of us through the driving commutes, and helped so many people through the numerous charities that he participated in for several decades. We will miss Capt. Herb every single day for a very, very long time.

It is heart-breaking to learn that another young man has lost his life on the streets of EastRead More Atlanta. Four years after our son John lost his life in the Standard Bar, I can affirm the police, the courts, and even the prisons because they eventually prosecuted, convicted and sentenced one of my son's killers. The other one is back in jail for other crimes while the district attorney's office continues to seek evidence in order to prosecute him. The journey for Patrick's family will be very long and very painful, but the East Atlanta community will walking with them on this journey, so the family will not be alone. Carole and I send fervent prayers for family and friends alike.

I just heard the extremely sad news this evening . I am so shocked. I did not know Patrick but IRead More knew about all of you when I had the pleasure if working with your mother. She told me about her kids and I remember how she described him. Much like you did in this story. She said he was smart and she was so proud when he was at Ga Tech. I will be praying for all of you and that God give you comfort in the way He knows how. Take care. Sabrina Gray

Beautifully written Kate. My heart goes out to you and your family. My sister was murdered in 1988Read More and I still have some anger towards the man that did it and miss my sister terribly. I pray your family can find peace and solace in this time of sorrow. I hope they find whoever did this and bring him to justice. Keep your spirits up and don't let the anger and sorrow overwhelm you. Constantly reach out to others that offer help, because they will help carry you when you're not able to stand on your own. It's hard. The pain is real. Just realize there IS good in the world. Remember everyone that loves you and lean on that. God bless you and yours!

Knowing Lil'Cecil from birth has been a joy. To see him grow. flourish and become "All"Read More he was destined to be is all a family can hope for their children. His was a life 'well-lived' and he did it so quickly. I have had the pleasure of being friends with this family, sharing in your joys, and now sharing your sorrow. But all is not lost, because your prayers have all been answered. . . He's finally arrived. . . The healing that you'd hoped for, has now been realized. No ones in a hurry, theres no schedule to keep He's just enjoying Jesus, and sitting at His feet. . And If you could see him now, He's walking streets of gold If you could see him now, Hes standing tall and whole If you could see him now, You'd know he's seen His face If you could see him now, You'd know the pains erased. You'd never want him to leave that perfect place, If you could only see him Now! My fraternity brother. . . Once a Sinfonian! Always a Sinfonian!

I'm a classmate of Cecil's from North Atlanta. We were in the first class and in the band togetherRead More under Mr. Colbert. Cecil was a well disciplined musician, a good friend, and a good boy all together. I remember the freshness of our uniforms as the school was brand new, and the pride we took in our steps as we marched for the beginning of North Atlanta's New legacy. Cecil was very proud of his position at Maynard Jackson, very proud and I was too for him. His life was cut too short and he will be missed. Cecil was headed for greatness like Vanable Moody. To his family, the Long family sends our regards and as we traverse sorrow's difficult terrain please don't hesitate to reach out. We are shocked and saddened. Ralph A. Long III

Brrrro! You always have to be the center of attention....I guess your job is donedown here, so theRead More good Lord needs you up there. I never got a chance to see you at the wake my brother but thankfully the mark that you have left down here is good enough for eternity. You definitely walked to the beat of your own drum man. I mean, played soccer, ate pancakes with peanutbutter, no cursing, Michael Jackson fan and drove a yellow deuce deuce like it was a Benz. I love you man, till the next time we meet....

Mr. Houston really changed up the program at Clarke Central High. I really enjoyed the band, theRead More flavor, and creativity he shared while his tenure in Athens. May GOD keep his family during this difficult time. My condolences!

Cecil is like a brother to me..we worked together at Dekalb Alternative School and we were alsoRead More connected by the band. From the first day I met him, we clicked..he is that kind of person..My condolences to Fantara and the boys...

You are one sick puppy. Instead of just offering your condolence for the Congressman, you are soRead More insensitive that you have to bring politics into it. How classless is that.

Condolences to Rep. Lewis and family. I wish the blogs on Patch were moderated to remove rudeRead More comments and attacks. The reason I enjoy Decatur Metro much more is because of the moderation. In fact, I think Patch would be better off if it consisted just of news and announcements without the comments.

Ours Prayers are with Rep John Lewis and the family. Mrs. Lillian Miles Lewis was a wonderful woman.Read More She made a difference in the lives of so many, especially, the least of these and her family. She answered the most urgent and persistent question in life, which is "What are you doing for others". Lillian served in the Peace Corps, and traveled far and wide to serve those who were in need. Lillian made a difference in her community and most of all; Lillian supported her husband to the best of her ability. Mrs. Lillian Mile Lewis rest in perfect peace, as you have run a good race, rest in peace until we meet again. The Lord will give Rep. John Lewis and the entire family the wisdom, and the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss. Mrs. Naomi Ruth Barber King Dr. Babs Onabanjo

Peralte, I see your point and I don't necessarily disagree with your position; however, IMHO, yourRead More own words in your article don't really support your argument. As pointed out by Anjin, you did provide a description of the clothes the kids were wearing and you provided their suspected ages. I assume you did this in case there was a bystander who may have seen these kids and could provide useful information. What other use is there for that type of information? However, by not providing all available information, such as their skin color, you leave the door open to someone misidentifying the wrong people potentially causing harm to those innocent folks. Thus, your reporting would cause harm rather than be of service to the public. I think it is your duty as a journalist to provide ALL information that may be helpful to the public (and especially to the victim) in getting bad guys off the street, no matter if the information may have the secondary affect of supporting negative stereotypes. By the way, according to a neighborhood email that reported a witness's description said the following: "Vehicle was, per XXX, a black F150 double cab pickup with dealer plates - the driver dropped of the two guys near the victim's house and went further down the street to await them -- XXX saw three black boys, one in an orange shirt."
