Mr. Jo Graves, you need to keep your 2 cents out of this situation!
You should be ashamed of yourself for even posting ANYTHING!!
You do NOT know this family and need to find something else to do with your
pathetic time!

This was definitely a tragic accident that no one would ever imagine could happen to them but only the whitfields being held accountable in this situation is a tragedy itself.
