    Extremely tragic that this happened to such a wonderful family. Also a little upsetting that the article looks like it was a written by a second grader. I guess proofreading disappeared with the internet.

    Very sad, I feel for mr rinkunas’ family. I knew joe and he was one of the best and most knowledgeable guys you could ever meet. It’s been an honor to be able to know him and an extremely huge loss
