You said it, so I belive it. It really was stupid doing 150 mph while running from the cops. What does smoking have to do with it? Smoking, last time I checked is legal? If you dont like to see what people blog, then dont read it.

I think you'd do best to stay away from this forum flr a while. There are some desparate people with hearts full of hate on these entries. I guarantee you, you cannout outhate them, and that's a compliment. Fill your days with love for your family members and know that the cruelty and insensitivity is repaid every day. We won't see any more than their entries on here, but it's enough to see they still rail! Peace be to you.

Linda, it's obvious that this poster , who is obviously posting under many names but the location and tone of the comments is the same so it is safe to say we know it is the same person,is getting enjoyment from the reactions his words are receiving. Evidently, it is a game for him. My advice to you is to just ignore his unkind comments and if you can't ignore them, then for YOUR sake, don't even bother visiting this thread, because he is not going to stop having his fun at yours and Floyd's other loved ones expense.

Although I have no control over it,I'm sorry he feels the need to be so persistent in this, but some people are just that way. There are plenty of them just like him here on Topix.

There is a big difference in giving your opinion and then just leaving it at that and continuing to pour salt into an already very painful wound.That is just downright cruel.And if you keep responding to him, he is just going to keep it up.

I hope you have a peaceful day.

Linda, tried to post this message to you this morning, but my router went out and we had to go buy a new one and just set it up.

Have a good evening.

Glad he just killed himself and nobody else in his wreckless act of evasion! What a moron.

Frankly I'm disgusted with the lack of human deceny from some of these posts about my cousin Floyd. Doesn't matter what any of you think about him ~ he's gone. He paid the ultimate price for a bad choice. I will add here that he was a very seasoned motorcyle buff and was quite passionate about them and he'd been riding motorbikes since as long as I can remember. We're not exactly sure what was going through his mind at the time but we had just suffered the loss of his (our) uncle and he may have been upset over that as well. Regardless, he's gone and he's left a greiving family behind.

Thank you to those of you who've posted kind words regarding his death.
