Can't you even have some sympathy for his family? I'd say that they was praying for him to get better. I am sorry for their loss. Its always hard to loose a beloved family member. I'll keep you all in my prayers.

Don't you people have any symphany for this family? I understand that drugs and alcohol aren't okay. He didn't hurt anybody but himself. My prayers are with this family. The news shouldn't have put this on internet. It just causes more than it needs to. Instead of talking bad about the situation, try to put yourself in their shoes. They don't need more stress put on them. Kenny was a nice guy. Just let him rest in peace.

Fist, the "family" raised this druggie. If this "family" had done a better job maybe he wouldn't have been a druggie. Then to the "nice guy" comment, since when is a crackhead "Nice"? He was a loser and now the gene pool is a little cleaner.
Seriously

"Fist?" Okay. Do you know them peronally? Did you even know Kenny? Everytime I talked to him he was always more than nice to me. If you want to talk bad about a deceased person than go for it. If this was your child or family member you wouldn't be running that mouth. My deepest symphanthy goes to that family. It's people like you that makes the gene pool filhty. Grow up and quit talking about somebody who can't defend themselves.
Stop

Did he do drugs? YES, Did he drink alcohol? YES, Did he drive a car while intoxicated? YES, By driving while intoxicated did he endanger innocent people? YES. In my book that makes him a low life loser. You "family" members sound like enablers to me.

Yes,someone raised a user.Were you there as he or she was raised?
Did you see the Mother or Father on his or hers knees praying for guidance? Did you attend church with them as he or she grew up? How often did you sit at the table as they gathered around to thank God for their blessings? What about family night, did you play games as well?
When the child became 18 the Mother and or the Father continued to pray and trust God as they saw the changes in their child. They spoke to their pastor, they called hotlines, they read all they could on drugs, they spoke to their child,they begged for intervention. The young adult now was no longer a user but a pusher to support the habit that began by taking a girlfriend's pain medicine for backpain from hard stenous work. One eased the pain and he could work longer hours. Now as time went on she wanted money before she would hand him one. He was ashamed,he stopped coming around his family, eventually God intervened and he was arrested. The Mother never entered the court room. She never asked the Judge for a favor. She bowed her and said thank you God, please guide the judge in the right decision. I want my son to live.
Since according to you the "family," should have "done a better job," please share your wisdom in what the "family" should have done.How could I or another parent who raiss our children to the best of our ability do better? Maybe your wisdom can save a child growing up from becoming a "user."

I do not know this young man but my prayers and condolences are with you and your families.

I'm not judging anyone I'm just stating the facts the news story said he was dui and he died. When you die from being drunk and drugged up then you are a druggie who has bitten the dust,he judged himself when he did what he did.

First people need to think about the saddness of such a young life wasted and lost. The pain his family is going through. And thank God, that his choice of drving under the influence did not take innocent lives with him.
If your not a Christian, then just sit back, ignore the problem and keep making snide remarks and/or worthless comments. If your a Christian, then do to the works of the LORD and stand up, let your voices be heard, do something about it. Claiborne Co. knows where the drugs are coming from. Get together and get it stopped!! Or shut up.

Ok "fact" u are unmistakably a bigger low life than any person who has commented on here. Ur bad mouthing a dead person, why don't u take a look at what u have posted!! U wanna blame the family for this wonderful boy for being a drug addict?? Who can we blame for your ignorance and cold heartlessness ?? I am in no way condoning drinking/drug driving what so ever but in situations like this, there are no winners!! You wanna believe that you win because this accident got "another druggie" off the streets... It amazes me that you believe the penalty for being weak is death. Since this whole web site is designed for rumors and opinions, you fit right in. In the eyes of the Lord, there are no big sins or little sins, sin is sin. And since you believe the penalty for sin is death, YOU should be the first to split hell wide open because this boys mother is a true christian, which makes her a child of God. You are downgrading one if Gods children, and that " Fact" is a sin. Why are you still walking this earth. You. Believe Kenny should be dead because he was a sinner? Then so should you. I really would like to bring myself down to ur level and say that is ur upbringing from ignorant, disgusting, scum infested, heartless " HELL BOUND" parents fault. But "ur gene pool" have no control how u've turned out. The last and only thing i have left to say is that I will be praying for you in church on Sunday... Then maybe God will have mercy on ur soul cuz from the looks of things, you definitely need the Lord in ur life. Don't comment back and tell me that ur a believer, follower of the Lord. Because true followers are praying for this kid and his family. You should be ashamed of urself for comments like you have made. One last thing "Fact" I never wish nothing bad for u or ur loved ones.... I don't need too, KARMA & God will take care of that for me!!!

Ok, because we all know that everything u read in the paper and ppl post on line is true. No way "those ppl" would lie!!! Yes, he has used drugs and yes, he has been drunk... But it was not a "fact" that he was under the influence at the time of the accident. He was at a party the night before the accident, this happened at 6:00 am the next day!!! So, for all u innocent ppl who are so quick to judge, of u smoke a joint and a week later u wreck and kill urself or someone... The paper will state that it was drug relates cuz its still traceable in ur blood for at least a month... Don't throw stones when u live I glass houses!!! Praying for God to touch u ppls hearts and open it eyes. Like I've always said, if low life ppl can find someone who is worse than they are, that makes them ok!! This is the only way for you ppl to justify ur own action... Prey on the death of u young ands wonderful person who has made mistakes and now he is the one paying for his faults, as will you pay for yours!!!

Stone throwing is a bad habit too.

I will pray for your glass house (you).
