  1. I work with a member of the family. Comments on other sites have been ignorant and cruel. Please pray for all and refrain from judgments in the absence of all the facts.

  2. A tragic but avoidable death. Media reports are that the child was sitting on his mother’s lap at the time of the crash. There was an empty child restraint device strapped into the vehicle’s rear seat.

  3. It is disgraceful and unforgivable. how could they be so careless and reckless. There is no excuse. I am sure they are heartsick. They should be. Death by auto

  4. The facts seem pretty clear to me.

  5. When you become a parent you must protect your child. Every time. Always. No excuses

  6. I wrote the first post. Those who posted after, ……..are in need of some personal reflection.

  7. The superior person who wrote the first post needs some personal reflection. A human being has died needlessly at age FOUR WEEKS. This was completely avoidable. It is tragic and heartbreaking. This was not an accident. Two responsible adults decided not to put their baby in that car seat. They decided that. Parents are supposed to protect their children. Always. No exceptions.

  8. Yes I am superior – to you.
