When Timothy D. Manning, 33, was shot to death Saturday morning, his death robbed four children and a wife of a father and the family's sole breadwinner.
Michael Ferrell, Manning's close friend, hopes to ease the burden of Manning's murder. Ferrell started a memorial account with the Greater Central Texas Federal Credit Union in Manning's name.
Ferrell hopes locals will donate to help the family cope with Manning's shocking death. Ferrell's enlisted support from Express Cab co-workers who will contribute as well. The family needs help with funeral costs, food, cleaning supplies, clothing for children and toiletries since Manning's wife is unemployed.
"He was a great dude. He loved his kids. He loved his wife and his friends. He'd do anything in the world to help people," Ferrell said. Source: Killeen Daily Herald
Behind every murder victim is a devastated family left to pick up the pieces.
