What do you think of someone who spends $500 on shoes but donates $30 for a boyfriends funeral? A suicide of all things. Unbelievable. This is the kind of people that are living nere.


What are you talking about Surfer Resident? This is my cousin who died, it is not suicide, he was out doing what he loved & now 2 boys have lost their Dad.

He was a close friend of our family. He will be dearly missed. We still cannot believe this 🙁
