    Joe foster. I would love to meet you when I come home this week to have such a funny comment on the street. You could have a little more thoughts seeing it was my mother that died in this deadly fire. Don’t worry brother karma is what rules in this world so have fun.

      Ricky don’t pay attention to someone who clearly can be so insensitive and incompassionate at this time. and a complete moron that the response to such a story is about the “street name”

      Prayers for you and your sisters – Your mom was an amazing woman and loved you guys with ever fiber of her being!! And you are right, learned alot from your beautiful mother – Karma will rule.

      Worry about staying strong for yourself and rest of the family!

      God bless you all!
