Guess who decided that it was a bad idea to show up? The freaks from the Westboro Baptist Church, who had threatened to picket the memorial ceremony. Was it because they were afraid of the SLAYER fans? Probably. We will let you know if they do eventually show up.
Our condolences go out to Jeff's family, friends and the Slayer camp! Rock in Peace, Jeff!
