I just ask that for respect towards the family, please be careful with your words. People make mistakes, but that doesn't mean that they deserve things like this. They have a family that loves them and thinks they are special even though others may not. People like to run their mouth and that's something that will never change. Everyone seems to only look at the negative. There are so much more positive things about kolby than what people have heard lately. He was a great young man. So sweet and kind and had so much potential. One of the best things about him is that he was a great dad and loved his little boy so much. I love him so much and miss him and I always will. This is something that will never go away. Keep his family in your prayers please.

This is for concerned! I am not ashamed to put my name on here, cause i have nothing to be ashamed about. First of all, you need to get your shit straight about what you have heard. Me nor my husband made any threats against that young man, we are very sorry that he is not here to see his child grow up. We never saw him that evening when he drove thru my salon, i could'nt have even picked him out in a lineup, I am sorry that he picked the life that he lived but that is not my fault....what if i had been working and had customers in my salon and he drove thru it and killed me or someone else,or even the people that were in his car, you ever thinks about that!!!!! I bet not, so whoever is saying that shit needs to stop or else have the balls to comfront us,this really upsets me, i did not know this site even was on here until someone told me to go to it and read this shit,but this is a small town and i could still find out who you are, all in all this is a horrible thing that has happened to his family, and i am a mother of 2 and cant even imagine how i would feel, and do you think when he drove thru my shop that any of his family said how sorry they were that he done this,NO! that is my lively hood and how i make my living, and for him to almost destroy what i have work for because he likes to be high!'I DONT THINK SO"! ALL in all i hope the young people learn from it!Thank YOU Mary Bartlett!!!!

I am also not ashamed to put my name on here. Mary Bartlett is my sister. Of course our family is upset by the death of Kolby. We wouldn't wish anything bad on anyone. No one deserves to die a horrible death! However my sister and her husbands names don't deserve to be drug through the mud by ignorant people like concerned and pakistan!! Like my sister said you got something to say put your real name on this shit. I hate this small town he said she said shit!! Grow up and let this young man rest in peace!!
