GUIDE ROCK — Three crushed beer cans sat next to his chair. Two more cans sat intact but empty.
He drank another beer. He rolled and smoked cigarettes.

He had been drinking most of the day just to dull the pain. He took phone calls from family and friends. He tried to call extended family who may not have heard the news.
His mother was dead. Bludgeoned to death.
