This has happened again..So sorry..A long time ago back in the 70s a boy named Eric Riecks and his father were both killed by a train...That was a sad day..I believe it the summer of 74..Sad.I admit I ran along railroad tracks most of my childhood...It could have happened to me too

Its been 4 years now Jon, can you belive how much time has passed? There is never a day that goes by that i dont think about you or that day..Whenever someone say that name Jon or the word "suicide" or even "train" my mind jumps right back to that day. I re see it all over again. We miss you dude, and i hope that wherever you are that youre finally at peace. We love you. 8-17-94 - 5-4-08

Yes it was summer 1974. It was my Dad and Brother. I think of that day every time I hear about someone being struck by a train.

What a terrible memory to have. Jon was in my daughter's graduating class. It's said that we lost him at such a young age. I'm sorry for your loss especially.
