We moved from Sterling Dr. and knew this family. Ward and June Cleaver they were not. They cursed each other and their boys constantly. I pray that the boys can overcome this tragedy and not follow their parent's example.

Whatever you may think, Brenda was still a DAUGHTER,MOTHER, SISTER, AUNT and FRIEND! So, you can go to HELL...you just cause more grief for a family that has been through enough!

You Know I wish I would have found this article two years ago, but since I didn't don't worry I'm not mad I'm just disappointed you would say somehting like that. I didn't even know you and you didn't know my family. Don't worry though I'm doing fine I'm married now and in the United States Marine Corp. My brother is also doing great he graduates this year. I hope you know God lady becuase if you don't you will burn in Hell.

I have no idea who this family is but, as I read it, I fight the tears that are coming...it's not like this family OBVIOUSLY hasn't been through ENOUGH but someone has to start a thread like THIS??? How uncaring can one person be??? I am 100% with Ryan Beckett on this!! You'd better HOPE that you know GOD cause he is the ONLY one who can help you with this...other than a good psychatrist!!(((((to the Beckett family)))))

Shame on you! What gives you the right to make a comment like that. You should know when to keep your opinions to yourself. It is a shame that people can't be more comforting to families in times like this instead of making rude and judgemental comments. I agree with I pray that YOU have enough common sense to ask God to put his hand over your mouth and hold both your hands to keep you from writing hurtful and unecessary comments!
