We are really looking forward to going into the discovery process to get the facts of what took place that night.
We appreciate all the people who have supported us these past 5 years. You don't know how much it means to us.
thanks

Hopefully you all will finally be able to get some closure. Just such a terrible tragedy that never should have happened. I hope your work and the work of the other families will keep something like this from ever happening again. My prayers are with you all.

I am hopeful that policies get changed and this never happens to anyone else so these boys did not die in vain. This was a terrible avoidable tragedy and lots of folks are still hurting badly because of it.

And I hope the families realize there are folks out here who still keep them in their prayers.
