Jessica is a student & friend of mine. At her request, I've gone through these messages. While many of the original tasteless and offensive posts have been removed, I requested messages that quote them be removed also. I appreciate all of you who stuck up for the boys' families, but please don't be offended if some of your messages disappear.

Sad that it was necessary to do that but you're a good friend. Both of the boy's families and friends have my sympathy. I'm so sorry for their loss.

Anybody that would hide behind a computer and say the things they have Said about this family & these young little boys that lost their lives is a heartless person. I do not no the families but, I have a 14 yrs old & I can not even imagine what they are going thru. No parent ever wants to bury their child. I have thought about these families all week & the nightmare they are going thru but, one thing is for sure these litle boys loved life, loved the LORD & loved each other. If you don't have anything nice to say please keep your comments to yourself..

For those who suffer,
and those who cry this night,
give them repose, Lord;
a pause in their burdens.
Let there be minutes
where they experience peace,
not of man, but of angels.
Love them, Lord,
when others cannot.
Hold them, Lord,
when we fail with human arms.
Hear their prayers
and give them the ability to hear you back.

If a lawsuit is filed, it will be interesting to see what comes out as to the responsibility of the poor children and their parents.

just so someone will not see them and realize it really is her fault she no longer has a son.
people have the right to express their opinion and ask questions.
lots of people want to know why she was not there with the rest of her family. some may even wonder is she had a date with another man while she knew her husband and kids would not come home and interrupt her. she may have been screaming oh god at the same time her husband was but for an entirely different reason.
A good parent watches their children and makes sure they do not do dangerous things like jump off the top of a houseboat into a lake where there is supposed to be no swimming.
express their opinion!!! This was hurtful untrue remarks meant to hurt grieving parents. With all the trash in this town, with no regards to anyone, I'm sure that the ones saying these things don't even know the families. Freedom of speech does not include slander. File a law suit with that!

Well, we are wondering why YOU are not in a mental hospital somewhere. Can you answer that question? You are obviously mentally detached from the real world, bipolar or a drama queen. You are the only one letting their imagination run wild here and would say such discusting things as you said in that post about the mother of those boys.
You've had your moment on the soapbox to express your delusional thoughts now why don't you get back to your tricycle or go play with the other kids on the block. You can't be adult. Does your mommy know you are on the computer?

I of all people will viciously defend our right to the freedom of speech; but even I know that you don't mess with the death of an individual... not the time or place.
My sympathies go to the families

portions of the quote were removed for easier reading but revilent parts were left in the original form.
Are you saying they were homosexuals?
You know that people at FBC says gays go to hell, so from your post it looks like you are saying the boys are in hell according to the beliefs of the church they reportedly attended and hosted their money grab .....i mean funeral
easier reading...you are a sick person to take something nice someone said and turn it into something ugly. Your day will come
