  2. When people don’t know the real story it’s better not say anything. Respect the families that have lost a dear one, you don’t realize till you are in there shoes how much it hurts when others just talk without knowing anything. Ignorants is what they are. Respect the dead cause there not here to defend themselves. People look pretty bad talking about someone who is no longer alive to talk back. Didn’t your mothers teach you to respect the pain of others. This world needs more love and less hate, may god forgive us all and god bless us all.
