@Bim Bum:
Notwithstanding your right in this forum to express yourself, it wouldn't hurt to demonstrate a bit of class in dealing with these situations. We have now read your comments concerning two very emotional matters for those people directly affected by same. Even for those of us not directly connected to the persons who have passed it is only human to sympathize with the family and friends of the deceased. There is always a time and place for everything. Right now is the time to offer these grieving families and friends our love and support. Your blogger name may be fake but these situations are very real for the families and friends. I know you are better than this.
