    first and foremost it was his father and him who hit his head on the boy lost his life at 13 years old, rudeness is not necessary to clean his father is hanging on for his life, and still has no clue his son is dead. you people need to get compassion in this world again. go to site and donate a few dollars and help them bury their son!!!!
