We lost an amazing young LIGHT this week with the passing of Connor Penhall. He was just beginning to shine and "come into his own world." An arrest has been made in the case. My thoughts go out to all of Connor's friends, family, and fans, and also to the family of the person being held responsible in this crime. Your thoughts?

I will keep you posed on Funeral services.
