    Been that way since the dawn of time.

    Not to make light of a situation.

    I stop at the same store pretty much every day. When Dennis' own father died he was somber but never shed a tear. He and his Pops were close and his Pops had prepared. It was a sad day.

    One week later Earnhardt died, this dude cried like a baby, shut the store down and spent three or four days around DEI and Kannapolis at the vigils and such.

    Just like he knew him personally.

    I have a guy at work that cried during our shift meeting tonight when the Kobe subject came up. I was like WTF.

    I think in today's time following someone on social media is like being blood kin.

    But a terrible tragedy for all involved. Thoughts and prayers.

    I'm a live and let live kind of person. I.m not going to be naive enough to think Kobe deserves Saint hood. The evidence was clear and if it had proceeded Kobe's career would have at the least been de-railed for a couple years, all that he did would have been tarnished.

    I do not believe we can go to the funeral and preach them into heaven, but at the same time I do not believe in shitting on them when they are gone.

    Kobe took the best route for him and settled out of court. The victim did the same. Settling out of court was her best way out too. Both parties agreed to the beneficial end. That is where it ended.

    I think from there, he grew up and did some great things. As a fan of the game, he shot too much, but he has five rings and I just woke up after a 14 hour night shift. Our career paths were a little different. LOL

    But as a fan, he had finish. He demanded the ball in crunch time. And he delivered.

    He was giving back and with his passing, I think the behind the scenes stuff will come to light.

    But like AGK said, there were other families involved as well, and since I have a kid I think the loss of the young lives is a bigger loss.

    RIP to all those involved.

    We all have skeletons in our closet. Who is anybody to judge the next man for their "wrongs"? I was never a Kobe fan so I'm not sticking up for him because of some idolized views, just being real. I definitely respected him for his work on the court but wasn't a fan. And that's not saying he was guilty of anything. I don't believe "test results" or any of that. All of that can be falsified. Either way, RIP to everybody involved in the accident.

    Death is Certain. We are born to die. All we have is the moment. Live and let live. People were made to be loved. Things are made to be used. One reason the world is in so much Chaos is because people are being used, & things are being loved...
