    I am sorry for everyone's loss. That being said, the story was very informative and ruled out things that may have been speculated on. It was a well written story & I believe it specifically says there was no indication of homicide or suicide.
    I don't think there is any shame to be given, except to someone who berates others for doing their job effectively & efficiently.

    for one i would like to stand for my family and let you know you are a TERRIBLE editor, you dont even have the evidence if it were homicide or sucide, WHY would you even say that?? Do you realize how much good that man did for family and friends, let alone strangers?? If he were still alive im sure he would be helpful to you too, even after you saying such sad, terrible things, thats how GREAT of a man he is, You should be ashamed of yourself for even publishing this is the paper, but i guess since you work for " The Standard" and you have such horrible strories, its the only place that would take you in so you could write such pathetic stories. SHAME ON YOU!

    I find it funny that Ron Bacon would say anything about Richard at all, considering he was there for approx. 5 minutes & left his grandchildren in the car when he went inside to examine the body... very inappropriate & unprofessional.
