      The area has been overrun with ILLEGAL ALIENS and some white trash to top things off. Fence it off, call in the helicopter gunships and call it a day.

    I was friends with this couple and they were just as normal as anyone. Please be kind in your comments and words, as you think of their children that have been left behind with this tragic memory. I will miss them for the rest of my life. :o(
