Your comment is as ignorant as it is hateful. The circumstances and illness which led to the tragic choice he made could have occurred with anyone else....including you. Consider yourself lucky that it hasn't and have a little compassion for those whose suffering leads to such a devastating decision.

May he rest in peace.

I agree with the previous two post. No one knows what anyone else is going through.

I can say I was a fan of Nascar's Tricky Dick back in the day. He was the oldest ROY award driver in history driving the #84 Miller High Life in 1989 at the age of 48. He didn't win a race but with a name like that you couldn't help but like the ol' guy. When I was a younger boy I can honestly say I liked to watch my Dick Trickle race come Sunday.
