I don't know this person, but why would you need to write something like that? If he died leave it at that. Why write that? That is very disreceptful. If it was your family member you woulnd't like someone to say anything negative about them.
Leave it at death.

So very disreptful!! What if is family didnt know? Let them have their memories of him and his short life. It doesnt matter what takes him from this earth, but trying to comfort his friends and family afterwards. I just lost a nephew 2 yrs ago LAbor day weekend. He was an ex-addict and I sure would have decked anyone who had said anything negative about him.
People need to think before they let words fly out their mouths that could really hurt the already grieving!!!!!!!!!

Not to be nosey but after reading your comments it has me wondering who this was and what the story was. I cannot get into the story, does anyone have it or know how I can find it?
I also feel there are things that should be left unsaid. After reading just the comments left I think it may be the same thing that happened years ago, and the kids of the man were hurt very bad by the things that were said in the paper.

This man was my uncle, and I love and miss him dearly. He left behind two beautiful children that I unfortunately don't get to see. Thank goodness for the internet. Thank you all for your kind words. It was tragic.
