What I don't get is how these people don't pay attention when they are on or crossing train tracks. Very sorry for the loss of life and not trying to be mean here but with multiple injuries/deaths just in the past week being reported, I can't understand how someone can willingly put themself into this position, assuming it is not done intentionally.

Robert, your comment is quite troubling and I hope you seek help if you are serious.

Is there some financial strife that lurks behind the death of this man? I think so.......

I didn't know Chris, but I knew the rest of his family and they are wonderful, wonderful people. I can't in a million years fathom what he was thinking, but I know he was a good a person as the rest of his family. God bless you and take care of you, Sue and the girls.
