The saddest story I've ever read. If your heart doesn't hurt while reading this, better get it checked out. Ron Franscell does a great job bringing these characters to life. Ronnie Kennedy may be THE most evil psychopathic ****head ever to take a breath with absolutely no redeeming qualities - and Franscell makes no excuses for him.
