No loss there. The Perry woman is a real moron. Give me a break, your daughter's moronic actions caused her own death and you feel the need to sue! Obviously this woman is a nutcase if she kills herself over this. I think the idiots daughter needs a Darwin Award.

Rather then sue to push for improvements since she was not the only one hurt on the "gap". Mom could not live with the fact that her child would/could do something that would lead to her death. It's hard to face and to not be able to live with the fact that your child could be stupid. Until she faced that and accepted that she could not move on, is she a moron. No.

She's not the only one who should "world the idiot of the year award."

Not always, but it happens, unfortunately. I guess some of these people don't grieve when a loved one dies, or when something bad happens in their family.

Amazed and stunned by the heartless comments of fools. This woman lost her only child. I'm sure there are survivors feeling pain over both of these losses and then they might read these comments.
