Updated: Wednesday, December 19 2012, 08:33 PM EST
Parents of a local US Marine who was found dead last week, say they have no room for hatred.
John and Mindy Buford are focusing on remembering and honoring their son's short life. Brevard High School graduate and US Marine, Lcpl. Randall Buford, was found dead Friday night. Jacksonville Police say he was murdered by a fellow Camp Lejeune marine. Lcpl. Marcus Hunt is charged in the murder.
Buford's parents say he was a talented, upbeat and loving son. Teachers describe Buford as a talented actor and singer in many Brevard High musicals.
The Buford family is asking in lieu of flowers, donations to be given to the Brevard High theatre department. Visitation will be from 7-10 p.m. Friday at the Moody Connolly Funeral Home. Services will be held at 2 p.m. at the Blue Ridge Gardens of Memories.
