Default Shooting in Alexandria, LA

Morning friends. The shooting you may have read about or seen on TV is in our town. The mailman was a personal friend and a salt of the earth sort of person. My husband had hired him years ago and was his boss for the years when he was the postmaster in Alex.
Remember Marty and his family in your prayers. And give thanks for the police officers who kept it from being worse.

Just checked this out on CNN...... how horrible for the wonderful city of Alexandria.... the local reporter said that the mailman met his wife on his route and they have four children. This is so sad for everyone who knows them.... you will all be in our thoughts and prayers.
