How can anyone give a 'thumbs down' to the comments over this horribly sad situation.

Condolences and God's help to the family!

I was thinking the very same thing. Some people just can't be happy unless they're spreading their negativity. Maybe they should be giving thanks this wasn't someone they loved instead of being so insensitive with their ridiculous "thumbs down".

My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of this young man during this extremely sorrowful time.
