i'll be praying for this family also.

Galion already has a bad name as it is.

I hope this isn't some copycat thing.

Im sooo sorry this happened and Im praying!!! This is a truely probely unbearable for the galion students. I hope that he wasnt a friend of Findley because I didnt think that was a fun think to go through knowing that she went ot my school and I hope he is doing ok. My best friend lives on that road so I know how tragic it was. Im praying for the who family. I hope this wasnt because of the kids at the school bullying him like the commet ^ there says. I get bulleyed all the time and you just have to live through it not hurt yourself for your own pleasure. PLEASE GOD HELP THIS FAMILY THROUGH THIS AND OSSPECIALLY THIS LITTLE BOY!!!!!!!!!!1

It is really sad what this poor child must have been thinking, and for parents to think that their child or any child of that age would think of suicide. I don't know what this world is coming to but when a child results to this as their answer to the problem it is terrible. I am a mother of 3 23, 21, and 15 and it scares me to death what goes through their minds and I feel they were raised in a very good home atmosphere, but you never know what little things are bothering them and are actually major things in their minds. God bless his family may God be with you in this time of sorrow. This doesn't mean that you were not good parents.

This is a very tragic story to think this poor little boy would turn to this as a answer to his problems. Parents may say awful things about his parents, but as a parent of 3 I know there minds think way beyond what you could imagine. At times it scares me to death. May God bless this family and be with them in this time of sorrow. This doesn't mean you were not good parents only you and God know that. I am truly sorry for your loss.
