"Nothing good comes from these lakes"

You're right, city water is a terrible utility, we should all dig wells and drink water of varying quality

Seriously...that is your answer to a tragedy like this. You should never go into a boat without enough life jackets...and you do not keep them under the seat! You wear them! Safety rules and regulations must be followed. This is a shame and I pray for peace for the families during this difficult time.

"Nothing good comes from these lakes"???
How about the water we drink? I would have to say that is not only good but life sustaining.

Prayers to both families accidents happen daily we learn from them but blaming people the lake etc isn't going to change what happened instead of creating drama this is a place to leave your thoughts and prayers just do that the family doesn't need this. That being said prayers and condolences sent to both families god bless.

Our deepest sympathy goes out to the Gruenenfelder and the other man's family. This is a very sad time for both families.

Life jackets are important, sometimes you dont think when your trying to save someone elses life, Corey was only thinking about saving his friend so please dont be mean and cruel the family reads this stuff it doesnt help so if you dont have anything nice to say keep it to yourself.

If they were wearing lifejackets they wouldn't be dead. Their own damn fault. This could have been prevented. Survival of the fittest.

Oh zombie to bring up this tragedy. But it is Memorial Day for all we have fond memories of, whether in service or a loved family member. Please say a prayer and if possible visit the young man's resting place with a flower and a prayer. So very sad and Corey truly was a wonderful person.

Too much Booze combined with boating often yield tragic results. And yes...it has been confirmed that alcohol was part of this tragedy.
Yah there was booze involved but I will let u know it had nothing to do with them drowning!!! It was a wavy night and one man struggled cuz he didn't know how to swim so his friend jumped in and tried to help but the one who didn't know how to swim was a big man and the second man was small 5'4 !! So put ur nose back on ur face and stop putting it in others business
