If you live in Knoxville, then you've probably seen or read the coverage regarding Erik and Sara Webb.
This is not a post to defend Erik, in any way, for what he did. It was absolutely senseless- the horrible act of a sick and desperate man.
But even though what he did was indefensible, I stand by this conviction- he was a good man. His kindness and generosity were always so evident to those who knew him, and anyone that had even one conversation with him knew how much he loved his children.
No, his actions were wrong- so wrong there are no words for it. But he was a friend, and I still think of him as such.
I am shocked and heartbroken.
Please pray for the family and friends of Erik and Sara, who will never be able to understand why this happened.
