FORMER New England Patriots Aaron Hernandez has been found guilty in the first degree in the death of Odin Lloyd.   Hernandez will serve life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Ursula Ward (Odin Lloyd’s mother) spoke after the verdict and to hear the emotion in her voice was heartbreaking.  Ward said –

“Odin was the best gift I ever received.”

“The day I laid him to rest I felt my heart stop beating for a moment.”

This is a sad story for all those involved.  Let us all remember that these are real people and after the camera’s have left both families will be dealing with this for years to come.
