    Keep your fears to yourself please, let this family find peace. You are entitled to your OPINION but it is not serving its purpose at such a tragic time for this family!, if its something you are really passionate about, get off your butt and take action in your community, don’t just sit at home pointing fingers and making judgments on loving parents that are right now living a nightmare!! Please go to your heart and treat these people how you would expect others to treat a family member of yours!!
    P.s.
    I am a stranger that is feeling great sorrow for this family

    Have some respect. Judge not, lest others judge you. You did not know this boy. He was in my daughter’s class. He was an extremely bright, wells mannered and respectful boy. He was a friend to all. Your comments are hateful, ignorant and uncalled for. There is no point in spewing hate during a very heartbreaking time for so many. I suggest you repent, it’s needed.

    I will miss seeing your handsome, smiling face on Tuesdays, Tyce. My deepest condolences to your family; especially your parents and sisters.

    Wow…my heart and prayers go out to this family, there friends, and his peers. I’m very Glad I didn’t get a chance to see the negative comments I hears you people reply too. …God has a plan for all of us. We don’t understand what that plan is, but we must trust in our hearts that it was meant to be. My dad got me a pullstart minibike at 3 and I took my communion money and bought a YZ80. I raced from 9 to 24. Raced professional motocross (well tried to quality Lol) and both my boys do now. Without the goals motocross taught me. I had a good chance of getting involved in drugs, gangbanging, or in jail. People get killed daily crossing streets. Please anyone reading this… take a moment and say a prayer for this family and keep negativity to yourself. Goodness this young’s and may he be shredding the most awesome track in heaven!!
