SAD>>>dont you have anything better to do other than gossip and pass on recycled second hand hear say about this family? Im glad to know what concerned and caring neighbors we have. If you invested as much into our community as you have into slamming this family this would be a much better place to live, and maybe stuff like this wouldn't happen to begin with. But hey, its too hard to make a difference right? Everyone is entitiled to their feelings but they are not entitled to destroying whatever is left of this family. Have you not had anough already? How much more damage do you need to cause today by gossiping? Did you call CPS on the mom? Where you there when they were called? See, because as far as I am concerned you just might be someone wanting to get some kind of sick revenge.
It is a tragedy and it is sad, but you need to check yourself. Because something is going on with you that just screams to me that you arent right. Whyd ont you do us all a favor and close your mouth because you obviously cant control what comes out of it.

This is awful! how can you go about saying these rude things toward the family? You weren't there! how can you even know enough to put your judgement on here???? A million things could have happened to where he went missing. This world is far from perfect, as well as the people in it. Accidents happen, some far worse than others. It was not just him by himself playing, it was a bunch of kids together playing, with a bunch of parents outside as well. It obviously was not raining at that time, since that is the scinario. Give this family a break! What has happened to this family is terrrible and i would never wish it on anyone.

i do have compassion, i have compassion for the child who drowned and looked to his mom for safty. i have compassion for that poor child who should have been protected by his mother from a deep creek running 40 mph, i have compassion for that poor child who never gets to live life again, b/c a 2 y/o was allowed to play near a creek. i have compassion for that poor baby who was found on teh creek bed, compassion for the mother, i do not.

What I don't understand is how people can be void of empathy. "Sad" what if this was you or yours hun? Step back for a minute. Think about what you are saying. What are you trying to accomplish by posting such horrible things here?

Its so sad that there are those among us who truly think that saying things such as whats been said are ok, because its not. "SAD" it is not ok for you to drag this families name through the mud. It is not ok for you to write things here that might not be true.

Do you know this mom? Do you know this family? Where you there? Why are so you vendictive? WHat has made you into such a hard person that you can't even imagine what loosing this child is like for her right now?

Honey, you aren't being a good example for other military wives. We need more women who care that are married in. We need military wives to be good examples to the younger ones. You aren't teaching those qualities. I just dont know where are society has gone.

My heart breaks for this baby and for his family. Yours should be also. One life lost to this creek is one to many.

That child could be any of ours. You know why? All you have to do is look away for one second. One second and nobody can keep their eyes on their kids 24/7. Even if you think they are safe they might not be.

Theres always this mentality out there to blame the victims. That is wrong on so many levels.

Have a soul, show some compassion and be thankful that her heartache is not your own. Be thankful you still have a child to hold.

my families prayers and condolences to Izaiah's family.

placing blame will not bring him back. lets focus our energies on making on and off post housing safer for all of our children. this should include fences around drainage ditches and creeks, especially because this area in known to have flash floods.

lets turn all of this bickering and negativity into something that will bring a beneficial outcome for everyone. start a topic petioning for fencing to be installed. i guearantee it will take you just as much, if not less, time than all this mundane bickering back and forth has consumed.

god bless you conway family. my deepest sympathy. your angel is safely home.

To the parents of the little boy: WHAT WERE YO9U THINKING!!! Well obviously you weren't! How could you take your eyes off of a two year old? Why would you even let you two year old be outside in a storm like the one that happened Friday? This was a mistake that very easily could have been prevented!

There isn't any reason in the world for a two year old child to be outside on any day unsupervised! Especially, a night like last friday. What were you thinking? Especially, if there were dangerous areas around your house. The child was only two years old. A two year old can't be left unsupervised anywhere. Even in the home. I am sorry for your loss but, i blame the mother. I think she is very unfit to raise a child!

Do you live here? Do you know this mother?Were you there that day? Are you just deciding this based on gossip? Please dont judge something that you don't really know about. In this case only the people who were there know the whole story and all of the facts. Unless you were there that excludes you, in which case you shouldn't be passing judgement on this situation. Your entitled to your feelings but your not entitled to hurt others by posting those opinions. Why can't you just let this child rest in peace?

The proper people in authority will handle this situation so why do you need to put your judgements out there also?

Look in the mirror....

This is very very sad and unfortunate. VERY. My heart just breaks from hearing any child who dies tragically. It's hard to think about that. And I turn to think about my own children. If I ever lost them no matter how old they are, it would still break my heart tremendously!!! My heart goes out to this family. Things happen in this world for reasons we cannot understand , there for we shouldn't judge.
