I agree with "poppy".... didn't sound very meaningful.....sounded to me like "auntie" was TRYING to start trouble. Who the heck gets on Topix to give their family condolences anyways?
I am sorry for the family and their loss though. Prayers are with them.
I wasnt trying to start no trouble. I just wanted to make sure no one tried to blame my cousin for what happened. Because it wasnt her fault.
you should be ashamed

tabby, when will you finally get tired of turning this poor childs death into your personal 15 minutes of fame? you should be ashamed of yourself, but do you even have the sense to feel any shame about what you have put on here yet? maybe when you mature mentally, you'll realize that this was not the appropriate place to show your tail end by taunting people and daring them not to place bad comments. please just back away from the computer, hit your knees and pray for the people who loved this little boy. and while you're on your knees, pray that you are forgiven for your real motives. you feel important over this and you're using this childs death as an ego booster. this is not about you for crap sakes, and stop putting information on here about his mother, the family or their friends. this is not cool. you are making a bigger fool of yourself every time you get on here. stop this childish posting right now.

Get the heck off Topix and go mourn your child in PRIVATE. If you are well enough to be on here, then you are well enough to be caring for your other child. I'm sure he misses his brother too and could use his mother's support. My prayers are with you and your family, but your family nor your sons, benefit in any way from you being on here.
Who ever you are you need to shut up. If Brittany wants to explain what happened to her son she can. And just bc someone has her other child witch by the was is a baby then good for her. Have you lost a child. If not you can not imagine what she is going through. If you ppl can't be nice why dont you go some where else. She feels bad enough without your negative post. We will pray for you rude and inconsiderate ppl. Love you Brittany... Cherie

She wasn't explaining what happened to her son....and if I did lose a son (heaven forbid), I DAMN SURE WOULDN'T BE ON NO FRIGGN TOPIX talking about it. Pray for me, but pray more for the family of that lost child. Sounds like some folks need to grow up. If you're old enough to have babies, you're old enough to know how disrespectful it is for her to be on here.
y do u have somethin bad to say to just about everything nice someone has to say. can u please be respectful and stop. If u dont like what someone has to say just comment about it to ur self

For One Brittany Sweet Heart If You Got To Talk About It Talk About Do What You Have To Do Guys She Just Lost Her Baby And Another You Know How Disrespectful You Are Really It Seems Like You Need To Grow Up And Just Let Her Handle Her Sons Death The Way She Needs TTo And If It Is Writing TO Talk About It So Be It..........

Wow...I only got on here because my sister asked me to read what ppl were sayin about her grandson. First this topix shouldve never been started by famiy or anyone else but since it is. Family & Friends remember you put things on here or Facebook for all to see your goin to get others opinions doesnt mean you have to agree or that you have to read respond nothing but dont add to it! Ppl can say what they want Those who need to know do know truth! For those about DA do what you feel you need to do but everything is known and if things get to where too much talk I will have this post removed. If you think they wont yes it can be!

I agree with you, this isn't the place for this to be posted, and everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion and in some cases we might not like what that is but, I believe if you are going to make that opinion and make it know then they should at least have the decency to put a name and back it up.

What is wrong with you people?None of us know what happened for sure.We have no right saying that this mother was not taking care of her child.Just because of what happened.We need to be comforting,and not be so mean.No she doesn't need to go to jail for this,It was an accident.Just leave her alone,and let her heal the best way she can.If it's writing down her feelings on here then so be it.

i have never in my life read things,like i have on here Lord Jesus up above help some of these ungrateful n heartless n cruel ppl.they must not have a life or friends to be posting all this nasty trash talk on a babies death.it does'nt help anyone to be talking trash nor does it help this family that has lost this dear lil baby.i don't understand how some of you ppl can sleep at night talking the way some of you have.it's not cool nor is it funny in no way to trash talk the way u have been.i understand that some of you have opions but why can you not keep them to yourself.you don't need to post it for the world to see n most of all for this family to see.i'm sure this mother is playing what happened over n over in her head i'm sure she can't get it out of her head.and for some of you ppl to post some of the things you have is just rude,cruel,heartless,and most of all just plan mean.may God forgive you all and may God help this mother in her time of need.

<quoted text>this whole thread was started by a family member.as you can tell asking people to say something negative calling people out to say something.Now when people comment there told to keep it to there selfs.why would you get on topix start a thread asking for people to say something negative and when they do you say there heartless.
First this thread shouldnt have been started but that is what the family wanted for people to comment.dont complain you ask for it.what i dont understand about this is i belive I heard that it was a stick shift car when you dont know how to drive one you learn to drive one out on a road were there are no people are cars if you can.Why did ahe even get behind the wheel if she couldnt even drive it much less stop it.i tryed to teach my dauggter how to drive you know were i took her out in the country were she wouldnt hurt anyone are hit anything besides a ditch.it seems like the girl made a really stupid mistake a deadly one that not just hurt her child but killed him.Then on top of all that stupidty she gets here on topix and starts a thread asking for people to say something. What do you think people are going to say im kind of surprised that it hasnt gotten as bad as it real could get.
If this was me and my child i sure wouldnt be on topix and forget it i wouldnt have happen to begain with.If i hit my child with a car i would have to be locked up becouse i would be trying to stick a gun in my mouth and blow my brains out.i wouldnt care what other people thouggt are were doing i would be so far gone it wouldnt matter and would have to be locked up so that i wouldnt kill my own self. Now im not a mother im a father so it might be dif i dont know but i sure as hell wont be on topix i wouldnt be able to type or even think i would just want ti die.also if the mother of my childern did something stupid like this she wouldnt worry about jail that would be to easy on her i would kill herplain and simple.now im not this woman i dont know her all i know is the story and from what i have heard i couldnt live with myself.some peole might be able to live with there self but i know i couldnt.even if it wasnt my fault i would be crazy if one of my childern died or was killed.i just dont understand this i dont understand the family but i know what i would do and what would be happening.for sure.i am in no way shape or form telling someone they should kill there selfes im just saying what i would do if this happen to me.witch it wouldnt be ouse i wouldnt be that stupid.
first off i DID NOT POST THIS! if you look under the headline or the story it tells who posted it.
