THIS COULD HAPPEN TO ANYONE TRUST ME! I CAN SPEAK FROM EXPERIENCE THAT THESE WERE 2 OF THE BEST CARING PEOPLE ON EARTH WHO WERE GOING THROUGH SOMETHING THAT NOT EVEN THE FAMILIES CAN UNDERSTAND. THINK ABOUT HOW YOU WOULD FEEL IF IT WERE YOUR PARENTS! IT CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE.

It is easy to talk about news stories and people when you only see it in writing. I am friends with the son of these two loving people. You have no clue what goes through someones mind when a tragedy like this happens. So before you go and judge, and speculate, think of your own family. Think of the people you are hurting by writing something as thoughtless as what you have written here. So plowboy and Johnee Pee, Be respectful. Tell your family you love them. And I pray that no one says things about your parents like you have said about these two wonderful, caring, people.

Please just drop the subject. They were my parents and were loving people. With the exception of a very few, the town of Shamrock has been less than respectful in this matter. We have been through enough and do not need anyone's opinion on the matter. What's done is done and cannot be changed. Please have some respect.

No one knows what pain people are dealing with, what is going through their mind. Sorry for your loss. Back around 30 years ago this happened in Panhandle to a very good friend, there were 3 Young children left behind.
Those who hurt the most are those left behind.
May the memories of good times bring you comfort.
