    My heart goes out to this family. Ms. Nall is one of the most loving, giving people you will ever meet. It is not our place to judge what happened. Praying for them all.

    I don’t know this family, and I’m not familiar with the relationship this man had with his father, but I would give all that I have and my right arm just to have another ten minutes with my dad. May Matthew Nall live to regret his actions.

    Very sad, I have knew this family since I was a small kid. We never know what’s going on.we need to live our kids and we all need to pray for God to help us understand these things that are happening to our friends family, and children and our world. My heart breaks for his mother and wil continue to pray for the friends and family. Glod. Bless
