The Valdivias are drug runners. One less of them is a good thing. Hats of to the driver of the train.

Why do people always place the blame on someone else.
If someone does not obey a stop sign and then is injured or killed, there is no one to blame but the person that did not stop at the stop sign. STOP MEANS STOP.
I could maybe understand someone who is not familiar with the road not stopping for the stop sign, but someone who travels the road frequently knows the railroad tracks and the stop sign is there.
I always stop at railroad crossings and look both ways before crossing railroad tracks even where there are crossings that have arms that come down when a train is coming.

Well Shawn im just wondering do you know this man personally? Appearently not cause if you did you wouldnt have said what you did! I am just wondering how anyone could be so evil to say something so mean as you did!! You cant judge this man for something some of his family has done. Why do you say Valdivias are drug runners? Did you not follow up on all of that? The only Valdivias supposively involved was Sammy & Rhonda Valdivia. I know the Valdivias personally, have for years! I know that they all are very wonderful and caring people. Not to mention they are all very hard workers! They have worked hard for everything they have! People like you make me sick!People that think they know everything but actually dont have a clue! This man had a family and friends that miss him and love him very much!!Have you ever lost a loved one? Someone that you really care about? I dont guess you have or you wouldnt be saying stuff like this! You are a very EVIL person!! I pray for you!!

Send ALL damn MEXICANS back where they belong and that is MEXICO. The majority of damn MEXICANS are drug dealing sorry filthy ass lowlifes that think they do not have to abide by the U.S. laws. Well, that cost one MEXICAN his life by breaking U.S. laws by not stopping for a stop sign. You are right Shawn, just one less filthy MEXICAN we U.S. citizens have to contend with. GOOD RIDDANCE.

Shawn I am Rhonda Valdivia and I do not know you but I am a Christian and I will pray for you. I feel very sorry for you. You must have had some very bad experiences or circumstances in your life to be such a bitter, hateful and cold person. When I read your comment I laughed and I am ashamed at myself for it. Prayer should have been my first action not my last. But I laugh because it is funny how someone can judge others when they know absolutely nothing about them. Which obviously you do not.
My telephone number is in the book so call sometime and I would be glad to meet you and introduce you to my life, my family and my God. May God truley Bless you and forgive you.

FUNNY FUNNY....
You say people know nothing about you. Hell, you Valdivias made NATIONAL headlines for weeks and months with your damn drug dealings, money laundering and other criminal activity.
Since when did YOU become a Christian????
I have too much pride to even speak to someone like you, let alone meet with you. Hell, I do not want any part of your life, family or YOUR KIND OF A GOD. HOLY CRAP.

So are you a drug buyer? I guess you must have been one of our customers right? I say that because you seem to know that everything printed or reported has to be true. Right?
Judge me all you wish God knows my life and my heart. He also knows yours. May you find God and cleanse your heart of such hatred.

Wow!!!! All I can say about you is you're the reason people think Americans are uneducated and rednecks!!! Why don't you read what you write before you post something!!! He was an old man that was a good grandpa that didn't deserve to be taken away from his family. How dare you say flithy Mexicans you piece of white trash. You probably live off the state Oklahoma and half of your family or you probably have and an Indian card which you would know that Indians and Mexicans all belonged to tribes if you ever read about Aztec and Mayans but I highly doubt it because you're FUCKING

OMG! U people are so lowlife! How can u say the things that u said? I have known Rhonda for 25 years, my dad has been training horses with Sammy for several years! They (Rhonda and Sammy) are both good people. U know I have made lots of wrong choices in things that I have done in my life, and I'm sure u people have too. I , nor u, or Rhonda and Sammy have ever done anything so bad that God cannot fogive us for! People wonder what is wrong with the world? God did not put us here to judge and u are no exception. Shawn and whoever the other one is u need lots of prayers. I am by far perfect and neither are u or anyone else has far as that goes. This has hurt my feelings and I'm not even related so I can imagine what Rhonda and her kids and the rest of her family are feeling. If u were any kind of man at all u would post an apologee to her and her family. U are a very SICK person and in need of some major help. Not any more help than Jesus can give u. I really think if u look around there is a church by ur home that will welcome u with arms open. I feel for a person that can stoop this low and write about a dead man's family needs some major help and maybe u need to try and meet God for the first time. I by far am trying to preach it to u, but only offering some free advice! I was always taught to like everybody, and do to other's what I want done to me. Someday u are going to meet ur maker and their will be consequences! Take care and GOD BLESS!! Once again, Rhonda I am so sorry for u and ur families loss. Sammy's dad was a nice little man, may he rest in PEACE. Oh and once again Shawn and the other HATER I will say a prayer for u too!

I have actually known Rhonda all my life, I have seen her work to jobs to put food on the table for her child. I have work for Sammy Valdevia and never and I say never seen any thing shady go down I've seen the day when Rhonda sold her jewlry to pay me because she didn't have the money that week to pay now if they were big drug dealers don't you think this money would of magically appeared. Also alot of their profit came from a horse that was one of a kind that Sammy owned and trained then sold for a great profit if it's any ones business so I do know these people and shame on you there are people killed daily in the United States by trains so are they all to blame because they are drug runners or they all don't stop at the tracks maybe we need more stopping rails and the trains could have a little more respect and slow down some. GOD help the ignorant asses.

I can not believe the hate, judgment, and total disregard that some people have for others. I to will pray for those who feel that they have all the answers and the right to judge others. Sammy and Rhonda and the entire Valdivia family have been our friends for years. The hurt they are experiencing right now is extreme and I am so outraged that someone would take time to express their individual views without knowing the facts. Papa Willie was one of the kindest most loving people I have ever known. His wife and family are going through such a huge loss. Your statements are hurtful, untrue and shameful. Further, the Drug Runners have been in Sallisaw, Sequoyah County, Oklahoma long before the Valdivia's ever got there.

What a bunch of ignorant bozos.
I suppose all the people that are serving prison time for being part of the Valdivia drug ring are all innocent too. How many are there that are serving prison time for being part of the Valdivia drug ring, 7, 8, 9, or is it 10?

Shawn, you are a shit talking no good for nothing piece of shit to say something like that. Rhonda and her family are my very best friends and like the other person said "KARMA IS A BITCH" and you better hope you don't ever tell anyone who you are , you uneducated chicken shit. That 77 year old man meant something to everyone in Sallisaw that knew him and for you to say some ignorant bull shit like that. What is ashamed is that you get on here and say all this shit via comment board and you know nothing,and I also noticed that you talk a lot about drugs. It seems to me that your a former customer. I hope that you get some mental help and know what you are saying is the devil, not a human. These people that your talking about are good people that would do anything for anyone..... So again I hope I find who you are cause therefor you and I would have a come to jesus meeting......God Bless your soul
