Obviously, you are one of the individuals who I was speaking of..."heartless and gutless" to make comments such as this! Imagine if this was YOUR child, and you are reading these comments. I don't think you'd have the same opinion.

Guess a screen-name does provide a somewhat accurate description...Southern Ignorance at its best?

This boy shouldn't be dead, the other three shouldn't be messed up for life.
I am apalled by the boys lack of respect for everybody else on the road, evidenced by the outcome of his actions.
I hope everybody reads these comments and learns that juvenile actions resulting in death doesn't earn sadness or respect.
Get your kids off the drugs......oh but that would mean you'd have to kick the habit too........never mind.

Wow. That's all I can say is wow. Get your kids off the drugs? Are you freaking serious? SOMEONE IS DEAD. How can you be such an a**hole. You're disgusting. What if this happens to you, or someone you love? Are you gonna say "hey get off the drugs, your an idiot" I hope not. Do you not understand that he was my cousin? You're gonna say sh** like that about my family? Disrespectful. Show some heart. I don't want to provoke anything, but, this site just has me so pissed off and I'm gonna see to it that it's deleted asap. I'm grieving and so are his parents and sister and family. All you guys care about is getting your point across, but, guess what? It's making me feel like total sh**, and I wanna cry every time I read something like that. As you people continue to call Corbin stupid, just remember that it's really hurting his family's feelings.

Sarah darling, in a way, he did ask for it. Anytime you get behind the wheel intoxicated, you are asking for it. I am sure your cousin was amazing, but he is also human and capable of making a mistake. He put himself, his passengers, and other drivers in danger. Your mouth needs to be washed out with soap.

You are correct, a wack job. That was an idiotic post and most distasteful and thoughtless.
But, at the same time don't use that stupid argument, "didn't you do crazy things with your friends" to excuse irresponsible behaviors. I hear that all the time and I don't buy it. We are supposed to be adults and teach responsible behavior. Your argument enables poor judgement and poor behavior. It is the same reason athletes are let off the hook for things they should be punished for. The "boys will be boys" argument needs to be wiped out. Stop making excuses.

A car is a piece of machinery, so why can't people (young and old) think before they get into it.
Would you not wear protective glasses when you do welding? I don't understand these kids today that think they have to show off and drive like a fool, and I hope this was not the case. This young kids life is now over and the three remaining will only go out and still make poor choices if they don't learn from this accident.
Please everyone you really need to slow down. And to the lady that gave me the finger at the Weiss intersection on 7th street, because I was waiting to clear traffic to make a left hand turn, if I were a big bruiser of 300 pounds I would have followed you and beat the crap out of you. But then I would have gone to jail for road rage.
Stop and think you are not the only people on the road, have some common sense if you can find yours. People today think they need to hurry hurry hurry and where the hello does that get you.
My thought and prayers are with all of these kids and mostly to the family that has to stare at this youngmans bedroom for the rest of their lives. SENSELESS acts cause pain to the ones that are left behind.
I never had a cop knock on my door at 3 a.m. for I taught my kids ( and I hope it sinks in to others) that speed KILLS, drinking and driving KILLS, and so does stupidy KILLS.
Wake up america it's time for CHANGE!!!!

Sarah please accept my condolences on your loss. It is difficult to imagine the pain your family is going through right now. Please try to rise above the negatively expressed in some of the threads. You and you alone can chose how you wish to remember your loved one and react to others insensitive. Surround yourself with people who love you and can help you heal.

For all of you who are insensitive, I can only say may god keep you and your family safe. We all have made mistakes in life, must of us live to learn from them. Corbin unfortunately did not. What a sad society when we do not mourn the loss of life, but rather point fingers and hurt the family with cruel comments.

I did not have the fortune of knowing Corbin, but from what I have read he was a fun loving, well liked and smart young man. May he rest in peace.

A neighbor and supporter of the family.

It's a shame that the death of a 21 year old son, brother, and friend bring out so much hate in people. This is certainly not the time to point fingers or judge. Maybe there is time for that later. But, for now, be mature and, if you have nothing kind to say, then do not speak.

I disagree. Hiding the truth is a childish response. Why not just say "sorry"?
You don't initiate sex ed after the pregnancy has occurred. The time is now to talk about bad habits. Corbin had bad habits and no one took action. something as simple as wearing a seatbelt could have saved his life. Four peoplein the car get to live with the fact that their inaction contributed to a death.

I could not have put in better words what SpunkyOne had said, " What a sad society when we do not mourn the loss of life, but rather point fingers and hurt the family with cruel comments." HonkeyLips I am mainly sending ths message to you. We are all still mourning and here you are posting daily, judging and pointing fingers. And who is asking you to? Everyone that actually knew Corbin is sick of reading the things you are writing. Your very rude and obviously do not know how much it hurts to read what you write. How can you sit on here and give people nicknames like some sick joke....humpty-dumpty, miss classy parkland grad and miss cheese. A son, a brother, a friend, a grandson, a cousin and a nephew's life was lost. You need to realize how many people your affecting when you write compassionless posts on this blog. Everyone that knew you loved you Corbin. shred in peace. XIII

Instead of getting angry, I'm just going to tell everyone about what a great person Corbin was. I grew up with Corbin, and since day one I don't think there was a time when he didn't have a smile on his face. Even when he was sick he would be smiling his ass off. There was not one bad thing about Corbin. I can't even snowboard without thinking about him. Riding was his passion, it was him. Corbin is always on my mind when I'm shredding, when I'm driving...no matter what I do I'm always remembering him. He had a great life waiting for him. He wasn't the idiot some of you seem to think he was. He had a great career planned for him, and he was very passionate about a lot of things. He had goals just like everyone else in the world, just like everyone that's been posting here. Why can't all of you just be happy that you still have the opportunity to achieve these goals, because there are people like Corbin who had to leave their plans behind. So if you all want to be dicks about this horrible thing, than go right ahead. Corbin was amazing, and he had big plans for himself, and he would've chose to live a long happy life if he had been given that chance. As Parkland graduate had said, SHRED IN PEACE Corbin Ryan Graver. We love you XIII.

Sarah,

I am glad you are choosing to rise above some of the negativity and insensitivity expresssed in this blog. Corbin will forever will in your hearts. May your many good memories provide you peace in the upcoming days.

I am proud of your response!
