    I know this family and am very disturbed by your comment, Bob. I do not know this young man but I do know he was loved. Youth do not always use their intelligence. This is not appropriate here. Speaking of stupid..who would comment on a death in this manner.

    We loose so many too young. By the way, the sentence should say A not An as no vowel begins with H.
