It is with much sadness we’re sharing this, my cousin, Michael Davis took his life early this morning. Details about services are forthcoming.
Michael was in constant pain bodily and mentally. We hope he is finally at peace.

Who would target Michael Davis, and why? We do not have an answer right now but it is great to see him alive and in good health.
