You are grieving now.
But there are alot of people who wish to help you thru this .
I am but one of many who watched this Tragedy and wish we could do something to ease your suffering or at the least , some form of kindness .
If there is anything in our power to do, please let it be known in some fashion .
This is not an idle offer and not a site for B.S.
Please be clear and consice in what we , the community can do .
I hope I have not overstepped my bounds . Yet, there are some things that grip my heart. This was one .

Why would anyone want to work in a mine. I wouldnt think the family of a miner would be so supprised when they are told thier loved on has been killed. It is a very dangerous job to have. But I guess if they are killed in the mine the family gets alot of money, so it all works out in the long run I guess.

listen the reason we work in the coal mines is to feed and support our familys.... I guess we could do like the other 70% of boone county and sit at home and sell drugs and collect food stamps...... but my thought on the matter is that we love what we do and love to be able to provide for our familys like we should....

WTF??? They work in the mines to support their families & to keep your lights on & everything else going around here . You know its assholes like you that has to come on here and make some smartass remark !!! All I can do is pray that you or your family dosen't ever have to hear the words that your son or husband has been killed or maybe your daughter it could happen on the road or anywhere .No amount of MONEY EVER TAKES THE PLACE OF SOMEONES LIFE or MAKES UP FOR IT . At least for DECENT PEOPLE it doesn't !!!! Some of my Friends were killed in that Mine that blew up and not a day goes by that I don't pray for their Families.

Not only does mining pay the bills there is also a since of pride. Why do people join the military? Lots of the same reasons.

Let me tell you somthing Mary. I am a proud wife of a coal miner. Why does he do it? To give his family a good life. And yes we know the dangers. All mining families do. How dare you act like it's no big deal if one is hurt or killed. No ammount of money can ease the pain of losing a loved one. I had friends and family who worked for UBB. And I miss them every day. I tell you what walk up to one of us and so it's no big deal. I'm sure you may not like what any one has to say

WOW, just when I think I've heard most of the dumbest crap ever, you have to get on here and say that! Are you heartless or just plain ignorant? I have a family member who died in that tragedy! What kind of jobs is there around here for people? None other then the mines really soooo until you start building some places to work and offer everyone jobs, then just shut your mouths. Even if u did though, I'm sure most the miners wouldn't leave because they love it. They love the brothers they make, the money they make and being able to provide a great life for their family no matter if it breaks their backs, wears them out and heck, it might even scare them, but they are brave and go in there and dig the coal used to keep our lights on. Yea, we pay the bills, but they dig the coal so we can even have power. I have 2 other men in my family that are miners and when u say something so stupid and heartless I can't help but tell you how wrong you are. I love those guys and they are the best you would ever know. It's a good thing you hid behind the computer and said this cuz I am sure ANYONE you would say this to in public would put ya in your place!

I did not mean to hurt anyones feelings. I am 57 years old and was married for 28 years. My husband was killed in an auto accident 6 years ago. A coal truck was going to fast and lost control going around a curve in Mann. So dont tell me I dont know what hurt is. I was just saying its sad to lose someone, but you go on with life. You have to. But it is alot easier if you have money to pay the bills and live a little. You will never forget but it helps to make things easier. I know miners make good money, I just dont see why they dont save up and move instead of living where they have to work in a mine with all the dangers.

WOW ignorance has hit a new low! You don't know any coal miners do you? If you did, you would know your description is totally WRONG!! What's normal anyway? U have a description? As far as I know, unless u have a clone, there is no normal. All of us are different. Who said you should worship them? All I said is they are brave and dig the coal that America needs. You just wished lots of bad luck, maybe even death, upon yourself. What you wish upon others, comes back on u big time. Why are you so hateful? Jealous? Or just hate yourself so you down others? Either way, it's very low to wish death on someone, but you are wishing death upon many people. You sound like a terrorist, or maybe just a drugged up dummy.
