  1. It’s absolutely unacceptable that this man felt so alone that he thought his only friends were the employees of Tall Tales. This not only casts a shadow of darkness on his family but the employees of Tall Tales who knew him will need to process this and realize they are not responsible.

  2. Not sure where u got u WRONG and information but first of all he is NOT 67 yrs old and second of all there WAS no female officer at the seen. I know bc I was there n I spoke with officers n corner. Oh and as far mental issues go not sure where u got that information bc no such thing was EVER said at the scene to any officer. You are nothing but a gossiper with no REAL facts. This family is not going to tolerate ur Lies nor gossip. You post anything more lies about this situation I WILL PRESS CHARGES. This family lost a loved one plane n simple let us grieve without vicious lies.

  3. where in the hell do you get off posting INCORRECT information? Maybe you should check your FACTS before you report the “news”!
