My Dad Was Murdered A Couple Of Weeks Ago

 the 8th of October 2009 men shot my dad 58 years old twice in the back for money...they came into his home on the farm in South Africa and killed him in cold blooded murder after they beat him with chairs...They tore apart the whole house looking for money and that is all they took. 

There were amunition and shot guns in the safe...but they took his life...for paper... i truly have no words to really say how i feel at the moment. All i know is that i'm sitting in a foreign land, hoping i can make this place my home rather than go back to SA because i hate that place. It took my dad away, we had such an fantastic relationship with it's ups and downs...still he loved me and my brothers so much he would do anything for us... i don't know what to do. I'm hurting so bad he will never see his first grandchilren. He won't be the one walking me down the isle on my wedding day.

My biggest regret was not being able to give him that... 

i'm broken and so tired...the fact is they probably won't find his killers or if they find them...these guys will be let free after a couple of months because the justice system is corrupt. I wish they would bring back the death penalty. 

SA is turning into a hole, that place is pure evil.

I'm so sorry for your loss b my friend? I hope you fell better

I know this is a few years back, but I will be very sure to pray for you tonight. I'm very sorry that your dad was part of this. The world can be very ugly sometimes. I just can't imagine.

Thank you for your post. I am very sorry for your loss. My dad lives 3 miles from me and I see him often. Sometimes it takes a reminder from someone else to show us how lucky we are. Laurie
