Well to you Keith,
I think that People that have a NEGATIVE reaction to ones that are asking for prayers for the families of their loved ones that needed help, and the family that survives these horrible deaths, are the losers!!! I have many hobbies, and I care about my old home towns news!!! its HORRIBLE that you would say such a thing about people caring... how would you feel if someone would of murder you and no one would have the courage to ask for the lords help in the grieving process??? You should be ashamed of yourself for saying anything like what you did...:( Im saying a prayer tonight that the Lord will lay a hand on you and help you with whatever troubles you are having along with the family surviving this death...
May God Bless you all

What a selfish person to kill this woman and himself and leave that child without a parent. Suicide is cowardly but murder-suicide is pathetic. This is yet another example of the results of children having children. Why can't guys like this man up and be a father? Any idiot can make a baby but it takes a real man to be a father and obviously this fool didn't have what it took. Now two people are dead and the life he helped create is alone. No sympathy for the parents, much for the child.

They were a young couple. Do none of you remember what it was like when you were 20? It is a sad situation for all involved. Sad that he felt that there was no where else to turn and acted. Everyone loses in this situation. Pray for the families but mostly the little boy.

I wouldn't be so quick to judge, Moses. I happen to know this couple very well. They both may have been young and maybe they did have a child too early but they BOTH LOVED their Child and he was the center of their world. He was a real man and I would say a bigger man than you will ever be. No one knows what went on that night and all the family can do now is focus on their child and make sure that he knows how much he is loved. You know it don't even really matter what anyone thinks and why I let it get to me I don't know. But all that matters is the people who know and loved this couple know the true wonderful parents, friends, brother, sister, son, daughter, they were. They will always be loved and dearly missed.
Help us all

ACM, Thank you for clarifying the insensitivies of those who quickly judge.

I pray for the families of both parties and for the little boy that they so adored. Brandan and Ashley were both great people and their memory will remain true despite the shocking nature of the tragedy. For those of you who do not know the couple, please keep your negative, idiotic comments to yourself; as you clearly do not know who or what you are spouting about. Such verbal garbage adds to the stress of the grieving families and shows nothing more than the upmost disrespect for thier feelings. Pompousness and self-righteousness have no place interfering with the personal trauma of others. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Its devastating what happened, and if a family member reads this, im sorry for your loss... if you need anything, please just post it here and i am always here to listen and talk to...
