    Life is way too short.

    My kid called me this morning. He told me that the boy who was murdered in Reading was Joe Ronin. He was a teammate and good friend of my boy's at MC.
    My son had a roomate in college that was from Reading.  He was friends with Ronin. Soon after Ronin was staying with the boy;s and partying at endicott.
    My son told me that ronin was very popular at MC, active in his religion. A good FB player, and a great hockey player. He left MC to play at Reading high and won a state title there. He played in worcester and was about to join the marines.
    Terrible, I feel sick about this whole thing. my son heard money owed.

    When I first posted last night, I included the suspect's name. After watching the news, I removed the name. It was not reported yet.
    Let's just say, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
    I do remember this nice kid.
    RIP, Joe Ronan

    I'm so sorry. This is a sad story. I feel for your son losing a friend and teammate. You are right, life is short. And it seems like the great ones get picked to go first for some life lesson to teach the rest of us. My prayers go out to the family, the victim and your son. So sad.

    That kid was from a great family, handsome, smart, popular, was captain of a state championship hockey team, days away from joining the Marines, and we lost him. What stood out about him to my son was his dedication to the missions at MC. My son had not seen him in a year, but you have seen the suspect in the Globe for home evasion about 6 months ago.
    I believe the authorities know who did it and are just taking their time to do things right.
    I asked my kid, drugs? He did not think so, but friends told him it was over money owed.
