First, they were divorced, and divorce is not easy. Second, no one said it was over paint. I agree with the man who feels sorry for the son. It's a shame his parents apparently did not put him first in their post marriage relationship.

Very, very sad. Wonder way she did not just come out. Why did she have to kill herself? Suicide is a very selfish act. It is a horrible thing to do to any one. Trust me....been there.

Welcome home, Johnny! Mom shot me and then she shot herself. What in the hell is wrong with people today?! Oh wait ... they are from Butts County. They could be first cousins for all we know.

That's what I was thinking...I mean she shot him in the arm...why kill yourself?

What was really going on?

Seems like an extreme thing to do.

What a homecoming....

You people don't know this family at all and you want to cast stones. It is a very sad and tragic event but unless you were there and know what all was going on, who are you to post these nasty comments. Being from Butts County has NOTHING to do with the tragedy that was going on in their lives. This mother loved her children more than anything and yes suicide is a selfish act but you don't know her state of mind, so just leave it to the lord to judge.

The son is on his way home now for the birth of his baby. He has no idea about all of this. We will keep the family in our prayers.

To the idiot from Cumming Ga. What does it matter where they are from? You really need to keep your ignorant comments to yourself, you never know when the Lord may choose to send tragedy to your life to show it can happen to you.......

To the heartless person from cumming ga. I am very shocked at the lack of compassion and the serious disrespect you have shown. What does it matter where they are from? Are the people from Cumming Ga. better than the people from Butts county? This or worse could happen in your family you need to be very careful how you judge others......

Please don't sit in judgement on my friend! Just pray for the family, pray for her husband and children, and for those of us who loved her. Yes suicide may seem selfish, but do you know what has been going on in her life over the last year? I don't think so! And no they aren't first cousins! Thank you Faith for your comments.
