after my pastor’s death i learned that sum people endure so much pain on earth & us wishing they remain on earth longer is only hurting them more. so God takes them to heal the agony. Their journey is now complete & as u mourn, crying out the words “I will always love you – Whitney Houston” don’t 4get to smile & say these words “Job well done.”

Eve Comments On Alleged Murder By Corey Conaway – Her Brother’s Best Friend

Eve is speaking out after 18-year-old Corey Conaway was arrested earlier today for the brutal murder of a 68-year-old woman who was his neighbor. Conaway was burglarizing the home when the victim, Ellen Walton, walked in, according to police. Conway is the best friend of Eve’s little brother. The rapper tells her Twitter followers (@TheRealEve):

I’m sending out a prayer right now. People in Philly have most likely heard about the murder in Germantown. an 18 year old killed a 68 yr old.

The 18 yr old is Corey Conaway. I’ve known him since he was 5. He happens to be one of my little brother’s best friend’s. My heart goes out.

To Miss Walton’s family blessing’s and condolences. But also Corey and his family. Corey is an example of a young black man feeling alone like he had no one to talk to. He applied for jobs and never got a call back so he resorted to doing stupid things like stealing. The main reason I’m sending this is to say please don’t forget about your younger brothers, cousins or just young homies on the block. Unfortunately alot of these kids don’t have MEN to look up to and some one just checking in and listening or giving some positive advice could change someone’s life!!! Reach back and pull up!!!! That is our responsibility. Trust me you could make a real difference.

Sorry for the preaching :) but it’s important! blessings to all…

Trust me I’m not making excuses I just know personally because my family saw him grow up that his stupid mistake could have been avoided if things were a lil dif. These young men with no real men in their lives feel like videos and hoes and doe is what a man is and we all know it’s not!!!

Trust me I think he has to pay for what he did. And he will, burglary in to murder is crazy, but less of this kind of stuff would happen if more people reached out… TRUST DAT!!
