    Lord!

    That is so sad, and he had such young children. I wonder if his wife or kids were in attendance when this happened. I sure hope not. I feel so sorry for his family. What a horrible shock!

    This is awful. I just read this and then my husband came home from taking the kids to school and he said he heard it on the radio. God be with this young man's family. He looks like such a sweet man. Just so tragic.
