A friend of mine was murdered yesterday morning

I'm still in complete shock about this. I got up this morning and checked my e-mail like usual, and this message was sent to the campus by our College President...

-----
Good Morning

It is with great sadness that I must inform you this morning of a tragic event that has touched the Albertson College of Idaho community.

Yesterday morning, junior Leonard Kellum was shot to death in his home on 10th street. It is unfortunate when any life is lost, but it is especially heartbreaking when it is the life of a young person that is cut short. Though it can do little to ease the pain of this loss, I would like to express the greatest sympathy to those of you who knew Leonard and to his mother, Charlotte, who worked for the college for some years, in both Alumni and Financial Aid.

I also want to take this opportunity to reassure you as a campus community that police do not believe that this incident was random violence. They have identified, and are currently looking for, a suspect in the case.

The ACI Counseling Center, as well as Campus Ministries, is available to speak with any student, staff or faculty member. If you would like to express your sympathies to Leonard's family, please contact Dean of Student Affairs Paul Bennion for more information.



Sincerely,
Bob Hoover

Thanks for all you've done
I've missed you for so long
I can't believe you're gone
You still live in me
I feel you in the wind
You guide me constantly

I've never knew what it was to be alone, no
Cause you were always there for me
You were always there waiting
And now I come home and I miss your face so
Smiling down on me
I close my eyes to see

And I know, you're a part of me
And it's your song that sets me free
I sing it while I feel I can't hold on
I sing tonight cause it comforts me

I carry the things that remind me of you
In loving memory of
The one that was so true
Your were as kind as you could be
And even though you're gone
You still mean the world to me

I've never knew what it was to be alone, no
Cause you were always there for me
You were always there waiting
But now I come home and it's not the same, no
It feels empty and alone
I can't believe you're gone

And I know, you're a part of me
And it's your song that sets me free
I sing it while I feel I can't hold on
I sing tonight cause it comforts me

I'm glad he set you free from sorrow
I'll still love you more tomorrow
And you will be here with me still

And what you did you did with feeling
And You always found the meaning
And you always will

And I know, you're a part of me
And it's your song that sets me free
I sing it while I feel I can't hold on
I sing tonight cause it comforts me



R.I.P.
