Some people need to have respect for the family in this matter but its a shame people can't shut their mouth if you want to know what happened read about it in the paper when it comes out. It is a public forum but would you want people talking about your loved one on here.

Can we please allow the family some respect and dignity during this painful time, whether you know them or don't, care for them or not? Wouldn't we all want the same for us and our family during such a loss? Please...enough.

Writing on a blog is NOT disrespectful! It does NOT deprive anyone of their dignity....it is a painful time no matter what is done or said. Would you rather have people whispering? There is nothing wrong with dialog. I agree that this is a terrible, awful thing to have happen to anyone or any family. But, I do not believe this blog has any affect at all on the family one way or another. Maybe you put to much importance on this simple page. I really do believe that the family has better, more important things to do than run to check this blog!

You need to read the other posts on this forum. And see how stupid people can be. I think everyone was just asking for it to stop. Before it got out of hand and something got said that could have really hurt someone. More than they are already suffering

everyone is entitled to say what they wish but i will tell you this just because someone follows the tracks home instead of driving doesnt mean they are drunk. there is a difference between having a few and being drunk and just because one hangs out in a bar doesnt mean they are hammered when they leave. accidents happen its tragic and horrible but it happened. my heart goes out to his family and friends. its sad not even 24 hours and the gossip mill is up and running. i agree people its ok to discuss things just not ok to judge.

you are right it doesn't matter at all if he was drunk or not its horrible what has happened to a young life but there are people that can only gossip. RIP Josh
