Who really cares how it happen and/or why. This is a tragic event that has occurred. My heart bleeds for the family and especially his wife. I have known his wife since she was 6 years old. When I first met Stephen I was concerned. The momma came out in me. I just wanted to protect her. Yet I saw the love and admiration he had for her. That is what I want to remember.

I have known her forever. I just hate people who automatically think suicide. They were a great couple. I was so happy for the both of them. I would like to know how he went to heaven.

Papa,
It is true. Stephen did in fact take his own life. It is in fact a very sad time for many people who knew him and had made it a point to watch him demonstrate his talents behind the wheel of a sprint car.

Friend of Stephen. I wish to remain nameless to avoid the blog B.S..

He did hang himself. Therefore, he was a coward. There is nothing in the world worth killing yourself over. There is tons of help for people who are feeling depressed, at the end of their rope or like life isn't worth living. He left a wife and child to forever remember that he killed himself on Christmas. What a nice guy. His wife was by his side when he died. People can hang themselves and still be alive, but die in the hospital. I know someone who did exactly that and his wife stayed by his side until they pulled the plug. But yes, he did kill himself.

Seeker... I do know him quite well in fact. Sucide is cowardly why not think about His poor daughter before doing that to himself. Also as for his cheating wife, he should have just divorced her then found a hottie and showed her up. Miss ya buddy.

"He left a wife and child to forever remember that he killed himself on Christmas." "he was a coward. There is nothing in the world worth killing yourself over." "Sucide is cowardly"

Did-ya ever notice everyone has an "O"pinion? When they don't have a tiny clue????

Mental health is something most don't understand and few want to discuss (sweep it under the rug) keeping details secret.

HOW many mentally ill fathers have killed themselves and their entire families???? What strength did Mr. Allard possess that confined his despair to himself??? How long had he suffered, in mental isolation before he surrendered??

Unless you were Mr. Allard's psychiatrist I doubt you or anyone could answer these and other questions accurately. So to call him a coward, after he's passed, when you know nothing of his suffering, is something low and disgusting, that you might (I hope) reconsider; you'll be a bigger person.
It Is VERY SAD

He has a wonderful, beautiful & smart daughter yet I have seen articles saying donations can be made for his spouse. Adultry can be devastating and make someone feel like they just can't handle the hurt for even one more day. It is sad to know Stephen was hurting so deeply and the hurt has now spread to all his loved ones and his precious daughter.
The donations should be made for his chid; for college or to make sure she has everything she needs now that she is being raised on the income of one parent versus two! I pray for you A.A.
