I feel so sorry for the family. Everyone goes on with their lives, but the pain for them remains there. You just learn to live with the pain of your loss.

The incident didn't happen in Bayard, either, it happened in Mimbres, and according to those at the scene, there WAS alcohol involved!
WHO EXACTLY at the scene verified that alcohol was involved? Did they give a breathalyzer test to a dead man? Was there blood drawn at the scene that showed he was over the legal limit?

By reading all the comments it is so obvious who is truthful and who is not. We all know that John Paul drank. Now, all of a sudden he needs to be given a breathalyzer test. Yes, alcohol was involved and so was speed (for Sonia who seems to think you just miss a turn by going slow) He was going about 85 MPH on a turn. Yes, it was a dumb accident that could have prevented. It may not happen on the first time, you drink or you speed on a motorcycle - DUH - YOU WILL GET HURT!!!

I knew I should not have read these comments...It makes me sick to my stomach to see how rude and mean people can be. No one knows what me and my boys are going thru. John Paul was our LIFE! He was an Awesome Father, Husband and Friend. No one has any right to judge him. It is evident at the services over 600 people attended. This shows how much he was Loved by so many and how many lives he touched. It's sad some of the comments some of you said and all I can say is I hope and pray that you NEVER EVER have to go thru what me and my family is going thru. But how many of you knew he was a Volunteer Fire Fighter and EMT, Worked well with disabled individuals or a Wrestling and Baseball Coach or that he took his boys Hunting, Fishing, Camping. That he would give his shirt off his back for anyone and that he treated me like a Queen??? Don't worry commenting back I won't be back on oh and all that Jail stuff that was made up is what he was having a hard time about. It's sad to say what lies can do so someone. This is a rotten world.

How insensitive some of you guys are! My sister just read all the comments. To those of you who can't leave it alone, please HAVE RESPECT for my family in this time of loss! No one knows what she and my nephews are going through! I pray and hope that this never happens to any of you but if it should, I ask God that no one say or post cruel and hurtful and untruthful things such as some of you have. If you only knew half the man that John Paul was! You didn't know him, you weren't there every day with him like my sister and they boys and the rest of our family. And many of you don't know the facts of his accident so I suggest you stop with your foolish, unkind, insensitive remarks. My sister is upset enough and so are the boys! I hope you guys who have left insensitive words feel ashamed of yourselves... Put yourself in Erica and the boy's shoes and then tell me if you would like someone to comment such as you have!! I feel sorry for you people. May you be forgiven for such harsh words and acts. John Paul was loved by so many, not one person he knows could say a bad thing about him because he never gave anyone reason to. He befriended everyone! So many people are mourning over him. Having over 650 people at his services should tell you that you can't even measure the love he gave and the love everyone had for him!!! Have respect for him too because he isn't here to defend himself! For crying out loud he is gone! Leave him be and let his family and ours mourn in peace and not have to see such rediculous s***!!!

The real facts are that speed was a factor and alcohol. Let this be a lesson. foolish drinking and speed in a motorcycle without a helmet did nothing but leave a family behind to fend for themselves for the rest of their lives. The children even were witness to this horrific seen and god help them to attempt to try and move on with their lives.
The REAL FACTS is that YOU WEREN'T THERE, but MY SISTER was because she was his WIFE and she knows what was a factor and what wasn't. So why don't you just be kind and leave condolences? It would be much appreciated. May god bless you and be with you throughout your trials and hardships.

i wish i could have a list of all u disrespectful punks names that left those comments so i could give the list of those names to every single person that went to johns service, his family is in mourning and you have the guts to come on a public shared website and talk about their husband and father and son, and cousin and friend!! no matter the facts of the situation did you come here to give a life lesson? your opinions do not matter THE FACTS DO NOT MATTER!!! u wanna fight and argue be a lawyer. as erica said he would have givin his shirt off his back for anyone, so why throw his name around after his passing as if u wanna educate sum1, let the man rest in peace and let his family mourn for him without your input. offer your condolences the shut up and go on with you day. Erica i am sorry you had to read all of their shit they had to say and so so sorry for your familys loss, may john rest peacfully and god be with you and your family.

You're ignorant, illiterate and typical of everything that's wrong in Grant County. You are an embarrassment to the family and this poor soul's memory.

So you have no proof. You are ASSUMING . And you know what happens when you ASS U ME. That's like saying "we all know Kathie likes dogs, so she probably has wild sex with them".
Also nice to know you are able to travel back in time and perch on the passenger seat and look over his shoulder to see EXACTLY how fast he was going. You have "powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men". Hello Ms. Superwoman.

I have sat here, Prima from AZ, trying to read your post. Instead of wasting your time trying to get names to "set it straight", go back to 1st grade and try to figure out how to use punctuation and learn how to spell simple words. I agree, you are ignorant! Yeah I'm sure, that would be what John would want - for you to set it straight for him!!
