Steve, my God, are you serious?
Let me lay it to ya this way; What if YOUR child dies and there are people who never knew him/her
or rather only talked to them once or twice who are wanting to know the details? What would you

You have no rights in this matter and nether does the public.
No cussing here folks.......
