Was the baby a newborn? Was it accidental? Babies are so innocent and vulnerable. I hope it wasn't by anybodies hands.

It is beyond poor manners to start a Topix thread about the loss of an infant!

I agree, at least pay your respect in private. This is a little too much.

I agree. It was heartfelt. I don't understand why someone would think it offensive to enquire about a child. We all need to care and also show compassion. It was with a caring heart that I asked questions. Prayer for anyone in that circumstance is all that some folks can give.

I only took defense in a way that the family may not want this type of thing over a public viewing, that's all.

And you have a point. But on the other side of the coin, they may feel truly honored to know that even strangers to them was mourning and praying for them and that tragedy. I am so sad when it's children and a hurt so tremendous , no family should ever have to go through.

Looks to me like you're digging for dirt.

Why does everyone always assume that when a child dies it's abuse? Illnesses aren't reserved solely for the elderly. Unfortunately children leave this world due to illness as well. I mean, don't get me wrong, unfortunately there are some terrible people in this world who harm children but it isn't all that. As someone that went through this before it's very hurtful for people to post things about the situation. Especially when they don't know anything. Let this family have time to mourn the loss of their little angel. At least be respectful enough for that much.

P.S. the title to this topic is also very disturbing. That wasn't even a decent way to go about that.

I just want to say that each funeral home has a website and there is a guestbook for each obituary. If someone truly wants to support for the family that would be the place to go post a message, not on a public message board like this. I do not believe there would be many families that would appreciate this being on Topix. In my opinion it is disrespectful to the deceased as well as the family.

If "Been there" is who I suspect that person to be they should be so ashamed to even compare themselves to this family and try to play the victim role. Totally different situations. To my knowledge this baby had a medical condition and LIVED IN A CLEAN HOUSE!

I apologize to the family for even posting on this thread however after reading one post I couldn't hold my tongue any longer.

I am NOT who you suspect I am. The child we lost lived in a clean home, too, and died of an illness. So please spare me. This isn't a thread for bashing. I don't know why everything on this site has to be about that. I posted because I know how it feels to have lost a child very close to my heart due to an illness, and the first thing everyone thought was abuse. It seems that everyone always jumps to that conclusion first...

@ Been There, First of all people suspect abuse because according to statistics, FIVE children die every day from neglect an abuse. This is not one of those cases but that is why people suspect it. It's on the news every single day. If I am wrong I apologize, however your post still sounds suspicious and in my opinion you seem to have changed your story. In your first comment you posted "As someone that went through this before it's very hurtful for people to POST things about this situation." In the second comment everyone THOUGHT it was abuse. Big difference in that being posted and people thinking it. There has been very few threads about children being abused on this forum of over 6000 threads. I can name each one of them and one has been proven to be abuse so there is no doubt there. Another one was suspected abuse but the medical examiner said it was SIDS. I believe the baby also had pneumonia and that was listed as a secondary cause. The baby was forced to live in filth also. That is the case I was referring to because you referred to things being POSTED. Who are you to decide what this thread is for??? I will respond to a comment when I want to and YOU have no right to tell me what I can or can't post. Ironic, you stated that everything on this site has to be about that but I read on this site regularly and I have only seen that brought up on two threads in the past several months. You seem defensive if this has nothing to do with you. Where are all these comments since you claim everything on this site has to be about that??? Again, I apologiize if I am wrong. However you made it sound as if you KNEW how it felt for things to be posted such as this and if that is the case that only leaves one case.

I do know how it feels to have things posted that were incorrect with the loss of a child. I never said my circumstances were on this particular forum. I know child abuse happens. Unfortunately Hinton/Summers County has seen too much of it. I am originally from here, and check this forum often. I no longer live in Hinton, or even Summers County. I did however have a nephew who passed away from complications of pneumonia and bronchitis because he was slightly premature and had on going problems with his lungs. When he died several years ago people automatically went to the suspicions of abuse because he was such a small child. They couldn't fathom the thought that there was a possibility of anything else. I posted here because I know how malicious some people can be on this website. Even though they start out with good intentions they can lead elsewhere. I saw the pain my family had to go through because of topix postings, and I was trying to spare this family of that. Some times people post things without thinking. I never said you shouldn't post. I just said that I wasn't who you thought I was. Once you made that comment I immediately knew who you were thinking (because I too followed those postings, news, and paper articles), and wanted to clear the air on my not being them. That's why I was defensive. I didn't want to be compared to that. And as far as saying that "everything is like that" I meant that a lot of times threads start out with good intentions, and someone has to come along and start ill feelings and hurtful words. So long story short, I do know how it feels to have these hurtful words posted on Topix about the loss of a child. No family deserves to go through that, especially when it was a death from things out of their control. That's how I relate...

I have no dog in this fight. I think it was ridiculous, hurtful, & rude for someone to start this thread. But you show the same location as me & I am posting from inside Summers County so I'm guessing that you are posting from here too.

Again, if I am wrong I apologize. I agree with Topix being hurtful and even when an adult has passed an someone just has to bring it to Topix, eventually someone has to post negative things about the deceased and that hurts the family. I do understand that very much and agree. I am sorry for the loss of your nephew. I would never wish that on anyone. The "other" case was very sad due to the conditions the baby had to live in and I believe that fact along with the request for donations and then not allowing the public to pay their respects added to the outrage of the community. Topix was the community's outlet to express their anger. Right or wrong I do feel that case was different because of the situation. Just my opinion. Wishing you and your family the best.
