You were always so proud of me and proud I was your nephew… I'm Numb right now.. I'm only doing this because I want to bring awareness to some1 killing my uncle vern Vincent Roper and getting them caught. Palmdale California isn't that big of a place so I know someone knows what happened and you will be caught. My last uncle in America man I can't believe this…this shit hurts. The last pic he sent me. Can't remember the last time I felt pain like this. Can't stop crying.. everything I do is gonna be for you. #palmdale #california
