May his memory be eternal and he find rest in Lord. 

The mercies of God, the kingdom of heaven and remission of his sins, let us ask of Christ, our Immortal King and our God.

If you die before you die, then you won't die when you die.

Why would someone downvote this? This is a legitimate expression of condolence, and it should matter not what faith (or lack thereof) is expressed. 

And I too will add, may the good Lord bring strength and peace to the Wells family in this time of suffering.

Perhaps they do not believe in religion or a God.

Perhaps that's not a reason to downvote it.

Grant to them eternal rest. Let light perpetual shine upon them. May his soul and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

this is so terribly wrong.  And leaving five kids behind. 

I don't think the shooters really think about what they are doing to the families -  I guess it's all about the power they feel they have holding that loaded gun. 

Please don't let this be meaningless. 

Sanitarian2's picture

Meaningless?   some random, stupid, chance encounter or caused indirectly by ones actions?

Step up and speak up. Take your community back from violence.

My condolences to Beanie and his entire family.

Football is a religion in Ohio. We attend our service every fall on the banks of the Olentangy. A place we affectionately call "the shoe".

Thoughts and prayers with Beanie and his family.

Beanie is offering a $15,000 reward for information.  Hope they find who did this.

Class of 2010.

Additional reward money has been added to the $15,000, and it's up to $30,000-hope they find this person that did this.

Very sad situation prayers to the family. Just as sad is that I would put the over / under of individuals who know who the shooter is at 10. So one, step up, not just for the money, and do the right thing - advise law enforcement. Two, not just with an anonymous tip, give up the ID and go to court and testify. Problem solved, justice served. Please don't talk about law enforcement solving it, the community he lived in should "solve" it. Law enforcement in this situation is only as good as the people they work for.

This is horrible. Prayers for Beanie and his family, and especially Joel's family.

Someone has to know something about this. A tinted jeep with temp tags sounds like it was very deliberate.
