Who the HELL do you think you are to sit in judgment like this? And WHAT do you mean by "your kind of community?" If you don't have anything sympathetic to say to Jacob's parents, please don't post anything on this website.

This is a VERY tragic accident that happened to very loving parents. Our community is in morning, and his friends and family are devastated beyond words. So get off your high horse and get a life!

Concerned citizen-first of all,how would you know if Jacob did or did not have a helmet on and reflectives on his bike? I guess your assumption is characteristic of the ignorant, pathetic people who justify their existence by oppressing those who have more heart and soul than they'll ever see in a million lifetimes. Secondly, let me get your facts straight for you-this tragic accident was such that no helmet nor reflectives would have prevented it. So why don't you get your head out of you're you know what and stop being such a waste of a human being!

I never knew about Robert, and I am now just learning about this for someone posting about in loving memory of his death anniversary. And after learning little about him, I do send my condolences to his family. It's been five years since his death, and I am sure it's difficult for the family. i lose my nephew at the age of 2, and it's been almost 7 years since. The comment from "concerned citizen" (i know i'm five years late), but how ignorant can a person be? and inconsiderate. I'm sorry if the family had to read such a disrespectful comment. know that even strangers have been affected by your son's story and may he rest in peace.
