ok, i hope you are talking about LYNN AND DALE, and not Ricks brothers and sisters. I am his sister and i can assure you we are not PARTYING! I would like to know who you think the bad guy is here and remember, there is only one victim and that was MY BROTHER, RICHARD JOHNSON! write back, i would love to hear where you were coming from.
As for Lynn and Dale, well they have been together since my brother was killed. As a matter of fact, they are not only living together, they have their own CLEANING COMPANY NOW! COINCIDENCE, NOT! I just hope whoever was involved, will pay for killing my brother and believe me when i say this, James Quick was not the only one involved.

Yes i am talking about lynn and dale. in fact all the problems james and rick ever had where bc of dale, lynn or maia. and that day was dales lucky day bc now him and lynn are together which surprized me considering that lynn was cheating on rick with a man named kent. heard of him? and as for there only being one victim..i think not.. rick was the main victim yes but ricks family suffered, and believe it or not james's family suffered also. i pray for both familys. the problem is most pple only think of one point of view in cases like thease. and maia lynn and dale where seen in a bar together drinking and the owner of the bar said and i quote, "They looked like they need to get a room together!".. theres also an oncoming court battle about whos going to get james kid since maia and him split up. lynn and maia have been cheating on their husbens for a long time, thats why rick was always so protective of here bc he knew how she was. and i think it ws too convinent for both women to lose their husbens at the same time and BOTH gettting together with someone else RIGHT after this horrible accident happend.

DALE AND LYNN WILL GET WHAT THEY DESERVE. I KNOW ALL ABOUT THE DRUG DEAL THAT WENT ON BETWEEN MAIA LYNN JAMES AND JOHNATHON. A DEAL GONE BAD. IF ANY BODY KNOWS RICK THEY KNEW HE WAS NOT GOING TO WALK AWAY QUIET AND LYNN WAS ALREADY WITH DALE SO THE ONLY WAY OUT WAS TO HAVE JAMES THE NUT CASE DRUGGED UP AND KILL RICK THAT WAY LYNN DALE AND MAIA COULD ALL BE TOGETHER. ONE OF MAIA AND JAMES KIDS BELONG TO DALE. LYNN WILL PAY ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. SHE IS A COWARD. KENT IS A COWARD. DALE IS A COWARD.I WISH LYNN DALE AND MAIA WOULD WRITE HERE SO WE CAN SEE WHAT THEY THINK ABOUT ALL OF THE 411 WE ALL HAVE.

James never got with lynn. she wanted him to so she could use him to get rid of rick 2 years ago. and i know this for a fact because i was there that night and had goten up to use the bathroom and saw lynn and james in the living room and lynn was trying force herself and asking him to take care of rick. he pushed her off and said he wasnt like that and left. i didnt know what she ment at first but now it is all to clear. james wouldnt do what lynn wanted so she found a way and druged him up. james had problems..ever body does, some more that others, but if james where a killer he would have killed the man maia messed around with when his first kid, holly, was born. did ya'll know that maia is living with some rich guy and is about to move to the lake. ya, well some pple arnt suffering too much. i will not sit back and watch two good INNOCENT familys get ruined, while lynn, maia, and dale get away scott-free....something HAS to be done in court.

You know some people dont like people as much as others and i think that has alot to do with this.People are taking advantage of that and making a situation worst than need be.James and his family are great.He isnt the one to hurt someone and this isnt doing nothing but putting him and his kids through alot.If you dont like james then fine dont but dont put it on his family.He's lost alot and he doesnt need to lose his kids.They are better off with him cause maia isnt nothing but a whore that likes to get around and leave her TWO KIDS FOR some rich guy.Now she's turned one of them AGAINST HER!People like to play the blame game and not use common-sense.GET REAL.wasnt rick and james such good friends that they treated each other like family.Why would he want to kill him.MAIA LIED lynn and dale too.And their the ones who need to pay.AND I BELIEVE THEM THREE ARE THE ONES WHO DID IT!!!!!!!!!!and one day they will pay and james and his kids as well as Rick's family needs to get on with their lives without nobody making drama.

Are you kidding me? JAMES PULLED THE TRIGGER! Trust me when i say that Lynn, Maia and Dale need to pay for what they did, but please dont short hand what James did. I am not blaming his family, i am blaming James for what he did to my brother. I have heard alot of stories about Lynn, dale, Maia and James. If you ask me i do believe that the three of them had James do their dirty work, but he still pulled the trigger, you cannot overlook that. I am not sure who this is, but did you watch the news the next day and did you see JAMES laughing? I didn't see what was so funny, but i guess to them, this is a laughing matter. I do hope all of them are punished for what they did. Lisa

I wish you would email me, i have some questions for you.
One question, Why would James mom even call Maia that morning, unless James said something to her? What is it, everytime he drinks, they should be worried that he is going to shoot someone? PLEASE! I don't think so. Someone knew something about what was going to happen or that call would have never been made. If you want to talk, press my picture and email me. Thanx

Because his mother knew he had went hunting that morning and then went to ricks. She (unlike any one else, INCLUDING myself) had the since to say, "Hmmm... drinking and guns...that might not be a good idea.." and knowing this called to make sure the kids wherent around to see guns and drinking mixed. And james did say something to her, ABOUT hunting. i mean if u had kids and there where some drunk fools who had a gun in the car wouldnt u go and get it? i know i would...

Im not trying to short hand anything.Im just saying my opinions.Yeah ok he did but there is a reason why or he was TOOOOOO messed up to know what was going on.I believe truely that maia lynn and dale had more to do with it then just a lil bit.I think they have a HUGE part to play in this.Exspecially since dale and lynn were supposed to get married and maia wanted a new man.They say they feel bad about her being with him.SHE BROKE HIS HEART AND HURT HER FAMILY AND LOST ONE OF HER KIDS LOVE,TRUST,HONOR,RESPECT,TRuST ,ETC.She dont need anyones simpathy.Yeah james made a mistake but dont we all.Yeah she took the gun out the car but how did he get it im sure he was to drunk and god knows what else to be looking for the gun.So some one had to give him one.... that makes you think... WHO?This isnt a blame game like alot of the comments are doing in a life or death situation.For both familys.And people sitting there just saying drama cause of hatered has nothing to do with the truth.THATS ALL OF WHAT EVERYONE WANTS.no one knows what happened in those woods but the people there and its rediculous trying to make the truth twisted with our thoughts and feelings when the people that was there need to step up and get this over with.And let the familys live peacefully.

You must be kin to James, b/c you are still DEFENDING his actions. "He made a mistake?" Damn right he did, one that took my brothers life!!!! As far as i am concerned, all 4 should go to prison for the rest of their lives! The only people i fell bad for in that family, are those 2 kids, Holly and her brother. Please, put blame where blame needs to be. Thats why people keep doing FU***D up things, b/c people like you are always protecting and defending the wrong doings that people make! I know Dale, Lynn and Maia help set this up, but James is a grown man, all he had to do was walk away, but he didn't. I just hope he smartens up and talks about everything, that way the other three will pay for what they have done. There is my opinion.

actually, opinionated isnt kin, i am. and yes i know james is immature, thats y he was drunk and over there. he wasnt ever supposed to be over there b/c dale and him where fighting. as for walking away..when ur drunk and/or druged up that might be a little hard. and what whappend was horrible, rick was like family to me, as i was to him. he ment as much to me as james does, and it broke my heart when that happend. and i live with thinking that maybe if i had stayed that day, all this wouldnt have happend. sometimes i wish it where me that had gotten shot b/c it would be a whole easyer and thease two familys wouldnt be put against each other. how do u know that james even did it? i have heard so many things including that they druged up james and dale shot him, if u didnt notice james STAYED dale RAN. lynn was seeing dale and wanted to c james but he rejected her, so y should she tell the truth. buts its over now and she was happy with her lover. maia is happy with her lover. ricks TRUE family is suffering, james family is suffering, seems like both wives got the better half in this, personaly i dont trust maia OR lynn. as far as i've seen they both are two happy for them NOT to be involved.

Im not trying to pick sides.Im stating what i think and feel.And no one can say anything about that.Just like i cant say anything about what you or anyone else says.Im not Kin to holly or her sister or that family or anyting.Ima good friend.Im tired of everybody sitting there playing the blame game acting like they was there and saw what happened with their two eyes when they wasnt,How was he suppose to know to walk away if he was tore up and didnt know what he was doing.Dale RAN.james didnt.As someones told me james dont even remember that part.HE BLACKED OUT.maybe its an excuse no one knows but him. just like no one knows what happened but the people there.Everyone has what they want to say but come on it been what a YEAR LATER!and people already dropped a level to make a site to talk trash about someone and something no one knows about them.Yeah im stupping to that same level right now.Oh well.People need to drop the fact that i understand it was your brother ive lost family too in horrible ways but dont let people get to you in these kind of ways.I respect that your hurt and so is your family.But even though a mistake happened.......James's family is suffering too they were all like family.everytime i talked to one of them i hear that they are hanging out with ricks family.or that they were the past weekend.all i have to say is why keeping making this come up and bring you down or piss you off or what.???? are you trying to find answers or trying to get out emotions.I dont know but its not gonna do anything but make it worst for you in the future when you have to see james face again or what happened........gets brought up.

What i really think is sad is the hate mail that has been sent to james oldest daughter. i understand that alot of ur family hates james, even though no one knows what really happend. but that doesnt change the fact that he was there and it happend. but sending hate mail to a teenager who not only lost rick who like her 2nd dad, but two best friends b/c family members of ricks dont approve of her seeing them. then to top it all of two of her other friends died in car accidents last summer, and she is STILL reciving hate mail from ricks family.

First off, I AM Ricks family, and we have NO CONTACT with them what so ever!! I don't know anything about hate mail, so i'm not sure where that is coming from. 2nd off, Dale and James came together the day my brother was shot, James even admitted to that, so it wasn't like they were fighting and if they were, it wasn't that serious. All i want to know is who is this? I just think maybe you can answer little things that might even help a little. You say you were there, or that you wish you would have stayed, i never heard of anyone else being there that day but James and Dale.(and of course Rick, Lynn and dalton) I do not want to get fired up, it just seems like someone knows more than what has been said, and of course, i would like to find out what that is.

As for knowing James' family, i never met them a day in my life. I've only seen them once and that was @ James' bond hearing, so it's not putting us against each other. The only person i talk to between ALL THOSE families, is Dalton,(lynns son) and that is not very often. Kayla,(Ricks daughter) does still talk to Holly, that is her choice, not mine. It seems everyone is passing blame in the wrong directions. I miss my brother everyday of my life and alot of times, i cry myself to sleep b/c this should not have happened and everyone involved should pay to the MAX, no more no less. Being drunk to me is NO EXCUSE! If you think you may kill someone, then DON"T DRINK AND DO DRUGS!!!
You have your opinions as i have mine. Right now, i can't feel bad for noone in this situation but my brother and his kids.....PERIOD I will say, i do feel for James' kids, they are innocent. But right now, i don't have it in my heart to feel bad for anyone else, not now anyway. As i said before, i hope all involved will pay dearly for what they have done.

For one, Kayla and Dalton see Holly all the time. As a matter of fact, two weekends ago, they all spent the weekend together @ Daltons house. I am not sure where you are getting your information, but it's not all the truth. Unless you know what is going on, please dont make comments that you dont know to believe is true, THANX!
