  • How can we blame trump?

    • There’s a family and lots of friends morning and you post this [edit]!!!! Were do you get off on this . You insulted the memory of my brother you insulted his family you insulted his friends. I hope you at least feel bad [edit]

  • Are you freaking kidding me? The man who lost his life in this accident I had as a guest in my home the night before. He was a stand up guy for the most part. First time I had met him he was a friend of a friend. That is super insensitive and unrelatable. I have my own reservations about Trump… To put it lightly… But find another story on this thread to troll……..

  • Prayers to his family and friends.

  • You’re forgiven, and you can thank the most accepting and compassionate man I’ve ever known.

  • Please update this news… I was in the truck following the Olympia, WA driver- I have yet to be contacted by detectives. Interesting the wording “allowed”… iluxo my </3

  • He was the good that balanced out the bad in my life
    I miss him terribly.

    • We all miss him terribly. He was the kindest man I have ever met. He would do anything for anyone. I don’t believe he even knew how to say no to anyone. He would give the shirt off of his back to someone if they asked. He was always happy and had a smile on his face no matter what was going on in his life. He is missed. Rest In Peace.
