Sending heart felt thoughts and prayers to the family. What a horrible tragedy. For those of you who have nothing nice to say, KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT, find something better to do with your time. Personally I feel that WSAZ should delete all negative comments. Shame on you WSAZ for allowing them!

There were NO other sources of heat besides the furnace in their home. And just because someone lives in a trailer doesn't mean they are poor! What a stereotypical and discriminative comment to make!

You're an idiot. First off that REALLY was the dad, I know him and have talked to him recently. You're a jerk for tearing someone down for their spelling when there is so much in their life going on. Do you really think they care about their freaking grammar skills right now? And your punctuation isn't so great either. So Holy Crap! I would love to meet YOU in person and give you a lesson in humility because quite frankly you suck. And don't worry- the first one is on me. Jerk.

Right, and it appeared to be a new model mobile home. They sometimes are nicer than most houses that you see!!! Probably an electric furnace like ours is,they can catch fire too!

I cannot imagine the pain and fear those poor children and young lady went through,and I'm sure their parents are devastated, but it's probably a blessing and they are in a better place. Growing up in poverty to uneducated parents (unemployed as well no doubt and on welfare) those kids didn't have a snowball's chance in he** of ever having a good life. Their lives would have been a carbon copy of their parents' lives - living in abject despair, ignorance and poverty while relying on the government for support and continuing to breed more of the same. Sad but true and we all know it.

My heart and prayers go out to the loved ones and family. I am so sorry for your loss. Don't you think the family is going through enough than to worry about putting the blame on them, or whatever type of heaters they used. Give them compassioon or just shut your mouth.

No words can ever replace your children or the teenage girl Linzy, who you so kindly took in and offered a home too. It will be a long and difficult path moving forward in your life. Hold each other often and let the child Kristen carries bring you closer.
My thoughts and prayers go out to you, your family and Linzys family.

To those of you who must not understand that each household in this world has a different income level, different levels of debt compared to the next. Some like yourselves may not have ever had to work as hard as the next. Some of you msy have had it handed to you by the sweat of someelse's labor and never had to lift a finger. You need to understand that this could have been your family, your children whose lives were taken and never had the same opportunities you or I have had. So, really think about the hurtful things you have said. Would you like to read these same type of comments made about your family at such a devasating time in your life.

Where does it say this family was living in poverty? Where does it say they could not afford to operate a propane furnace? Where does it say they were using space heaters, etc? Were we reading the same article?

My husband makes $75K a year. I make an additional $33K. We have a 2002 truck, 2008 SUV, a motorhome, we owe no one, and we live in a double wide because we want to. We use an oil space heater because I like the extra heat. We are far from being in poverty.

To assume a person is poor because they live in a trailer shows how ignorant you are. Know the facts before you judge the people.

My heartfelt prayers to this family for peace and comfort.

Wait - so because they lived in a mobile home, you can infer their income level, parenting abilities, education level, whether or not they received assistance? Wow.
You could be right, you could be wrong, but making all these assumptions and judgments is ignorant as well as crass, considering the situation.

Often, people that do work then do not qualify for any sort of assistance. I do not qualify for any daycare subsidy but when I drop my daughter off, I've seen people signing the title20 log and driving away in shiny suvs. But of course, many people have nice things I do not have, but also have debt I don't have.

Also, children's lives do not have to mirror their parents'. Someone I am close to grew up on welfare (father a disabled vietnam vet) and witnessed violent things I am startled to hear. He has a college degree, a decent paying job, and a stable family.

Richard & Kristen
Our sympathy goes out to you. People show their ignorance and cruelty when they can hide behind a fake name and in their comfortable "little" life with a computer screen in front of them. They have no clue the pain and agony that you are going thru. This is something that I would not wish on my worst enemy but they will never know until they have experienced it themself. May you find comfort in your memories. People who dont know you or can only run their mouth about things they dont have a clue need to keep their mouth shut. We are always here for you if you need anything.
