I'm disheartened by the negativity of EVERYONE on this board. While the family and community grieves for the loss of young member, some of the comments here, such as "I'll punch ur face", "mind your own business", "you have no compassion" are pretty darn ugly. Prayers to everyone.

Wow There are some real jerks out there that think they are above us all, how dare you negative people make statements and remarks about the lives of kids you don’t even know, and are you kidding me how can you be so ignorant towards a young mans life, and I mean the young that has to live with the guilt for the rest of his life (just try to put your self in his shoes and think about how you would feel or if your kid had to deal with this kind of tragedy) and as for Austin the other young man that the family and friends lost and we all will miss forever, its people like you have no clue what its like to loss a child and it dose not matter how young or how old or how they died its always hard on mom, dad, family and friends so the least you negative people can do is get the facts before you open your big mouth and even then I know its hard for your kind not be ignorant but you can at least try or shut your trap. my thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends with lots-of-love Bev.
