I gave birth to John Kotiw and to Nick Kotiw. John was loved by a lot of people, so don't get that wrong. He wasn't just a troubled youth. He had a Gramma, me, an aunt and his father did love him, too!!! So, don't go saying nobody wanted him! He was loved from the time he was born and still is loved.

John was being a jerk and that is why he died.
You run from cops you deserve to die.
He wasn't a troubled youth.
He was a youth who caused trouble. Including his own.

It's been 7 years since I lost my son John and I'm still numb like all of us who've been here to love him since he was born. Anybody has anything to say bad about John is a lie and I would encourage them to say it to my face.

All you people had a lot to say. I'mJohn's real mother. He sat in juvy for like 3 months for holding someone elses brokenwatch because he didn't know the person he was with(an Arab) was holding up Mcdonalds. When you find out how screwed up the system is and you know you're a good person you do not want to be one of their fatalities. He shouldn't of run, right. I lived with John and he didn't take drugs so fuck you. Talk about your own kids & thanks for your concern.

All of Nicholas's family are helping him deal with his struggles with anger(but who are you & why am I telling you our family business?) He's normal with a heart. That's what's getting you confused is his heart and the special bond he had with his brother.
