He lived in Playa del Rey and he was despondent? I mean he was getting older (pushing 80). I would have just been a man about it...

We all get older because it is a fact of life. Now go play outside with the other children, Davey...

Oh, I can't wait to see how you handle getting old....you don't care about anyone but yourself. And saying what you said just shows your immaturity. Go back to school kid....

My apologies for the delay. YOU my dear have no idea what the circumstances lead to my Uncle's death. I feel horrible for the people in you life who have to deal with someone who chooses to spend their time online commenting on the death of another human being. You are a coward and a seemingly desperate and pathetic man. I would pray for you but, I'm sure your soul is beyond repair.

Dear Miles, My sincere apologies for the delay! YOU my dear have no knowledge of the circumstances that lead to my Uncle's death. I feel horrible for the people in you life who have to deal with someone who chooses to spend their time commenting on ending of another human being's life. You are a coward and a seemingly juvenile person. I would pray for you but, I'm sure your soul is beyond repair.

Kelley, Your uncle was the owner of King's Cabinet, right? I worked for him when I was a very young man. He loved his dogs. Dave
