      You are so right! Some people have no sense of sympathy or empathy! May God's mercy and grace abide for us all. They should be ashamed...

        I don't have sympathy for everyone. Is it a crime to be this way?

          There is a place for people like bite me and oh no you didn't. You have to be living a miserable life to find humor in any of this. The sad thing is I wonder who will really care when you die. My prayers go out to his family and I also pray for the 2 of you-despite how this may sound I do pray God will turn you around before it is too late.

      I cannot imagine making light of this, nor how dysfunctional a person would find this news funny. It is never funny when a life is lost.

      I guess you'd find it as funny if it was your father or son?
