Easier said than done. Not everything is the same cookie cutter design for greif. It is not a one size fits all. Every death has a different cirumstance attached to different people. Who are you to judge Kurts family on what is honoring and what is not. Yes you may be frustated that this is still going on for you to see. However, as you read this..Kmom and Kdad are living it. Court cases are slow. So fricking slow. That keeps the wounds fresh for the family. Nothing and no one comes close to feeling the wound his mom and dad feel. Unless you have lost a child from a violent crime than you have no idea how hard it is for them every waking moment. What is so wrong with what Kdad said? You attacked his grief so he responded. One day they will move onto the next stage of dealing with this. One day. Until then let them defent Kurt and his things. If it bothers you to read then don't read it.
"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted" Mathew 5:4. It's their loss to mourn. Let them do it as they seem fit.
So true Mason, thank you!

I was kurts friend since pee wee football. Have stayed at his mom and dads house with him as a Teenager. Graduated with him. Lost contact with Kurt when we were in our early 20s. The only thing I am concerned with is that the people responsible for his death are convicted. When I knew Kurt he was a great guy and that's how I want and will remember him.

yes he was a nice, caring person and thats how I will always remember him as well. Alot of the people that are calling him bad things on here are probably people he helped and worried about the most, but you and I know how Kurt really was. God bless you and thank you. I hope they will set trial dates on Oct 15th.

Its not like they have not been doing anything, there is discovery, motions to file, appeals on motions denied, appeals of the appeals. Real life court is not like TV court, it takes years for a murder case, here and every other state. Thankfully so, these things are not something that should be rushed.

What a relief. A trial is so hard on the victim's family and all involved. I hope you are satisfied with whatever punishment he received.
