Why do these people always have to go out and buy shirts with pics of the deceased? Where the heck do they get them from? With the costs of funerals you would think the money could be better spent. Not my business but just wondering.

There are few things as sorrowful as a prayer vigil for a child who has died at the hands of another. The anguish of this family is a reminder that we should pray fervently for our children (and all others) while they are alive. We need to remember to pray that our children learn important skills such as decision making and conflict resolution. We need to pray that God protect them when we or they can't. I'm not sure of the effectiveness of praying for someone after they die, but I'm pretty sure that there is more that prayer can do for them when they are alive.

Way back in the day, Nuggetts coach Dan Issel lost his job for "rascist" remarks. He was speaking the truth.

For those who think Mexicans and Immigration is not a problem, look in the news to see how many HISPANIC surnames are in the news.

Every time someone steps out of bounds, the HISPANIC population is the first to RISE UP AND DEMAND AN APOLOGY.

They are really good about begging for apology, cause they have PRIDE! Where are the Hispanic civil leaders to RISE UP and TEACH THEIR POPULATION, not to act like ANIMALS.

Mexicans have no respect for anybody. They are as primeval as the Jihadists in the Middle East

EVOLVE ALREADY!! Viva ENGLISH!!

I Love You Chris!! You were one of the best friends anyone could ever have!! I sit and look on all of the times we all shared together. When I close my eyes I see your face in the 3rd graded when our friendship first started. So innocent and loving, who knew you stay that way through your entire life. You touched so many peoples hearts, minds and souls! And I thank you for that. You made my life better. I'll miss you everyday for the rest my life!

We wear shirts to show the love we have for the person that has passed. It is also a sign of respect and a way for us to show the world that this person was someone very special to us. And when it comes to someone you love money is no object. And everyone from family to friends are all very close and it is also a way for us to show the family our support. And in all actuallity, they aren't that expensive. We pray after someones death to comfort the ones still living. Scriptures that were read speak about why God took him and that the ones that are still here don't need to worry about where they have gone. They also tell us that we need to make a change in our lives while we have the chance so we can make it to that special place too. And I want to thank everyone for your prayers.

Oh I'm sorry, you must not be related to the cop who was shot by and illegal, or perhaps the illegals, ALREADY been deported running dope on I-70 or the woman who .... forget it.

I am not racist against Chicano! members of MY FAMILY include Gonzales, Sandoval, Martinez, need I continue...half my family members are of LEGAL IMMIGRATION.

These Mexicans and Hondurans etc.. come to the USA and piss on our flag while waving their own.

You confuse the Illegals with The LEGITIMATE HISPANIC POPULATION. and you call me racist.. HA!

Excellent! Finally someone that see's things as they are. I am 50% hispanic and to say that I am a racist is crazy. I do however beleive that anyone that claims they want to be an American but waives his native countries flag should be sent back to his/her country in a box. If you want to be an American, there is a legal way. GET IN LINE! DO IT LEGAL OR STAY HOME. Oh, and stop acting like victims, you are criminals!

its amazing how everything that happens in the news ends up as a racial thing. a tree falls on a car ... blame it on someone with a differant ethnic background.

funny enough, there are "junk" people in every walk of life.
if u choose to let the "so called" junk ppl run ur life, what a sad one u must lead.

death is death, and no matter who dies, the loss is gr8 to someone. it doesnt matter who does the shooting , white, black, hispanic, asian, death is death and the victim meant something to someone ... maybe even alot of ppl.
