"Fortherecord" and anyone else in Keenan's party, there's no point in getting upset with the family and friends of the other two individuals involved because their lashing out, though wrong, is expected. Had it been the other way around, you'd be lashing out at them so try to be understanding and sympathetic. To the family and friends of Mr. Tallon and Mrs. Allison, I ask the same of you. Though you may not care or choose to believe or accept it, we understand your pain through this tragedy. We've all lost loved ones one way or another. Of course we didn't want them to be taken from us, but it's not our decision to make. Anyone's time can come at any MOMENT, so let's make the best and the most of the time that we DO have to share with one another.
"Doc," I think your comments were the most sensible and respectful comments that I read and I thank you for that.
To the families and friends of Mr. Tallon and Mrs. Allison (and alson Mrs. Allison), I sincerely ask and pray that you forgive Keenan, in time, for what he did. I know that it won't come immediately (for some it may never come) and it may never be complete forgiveness. I just ask that you do what you can. Family and friends of Keenan, pray for the family and friends of Mr. Tallon and Mrs. Allison (by the way, every time I mention Mrs. Allison, I'm including her as well. I do realize that she is still alive, thankfully, and do not wish my comments to be perceived that I'm just counting her deceased as Mr. Tallon).
Let us all continue to see Christ in all that we do, see, and know and even more so in what we do not. All things happen for a reason (and with God, it's ALWAYS a GOOD reason) and HE will NEVER put more on us than we can bear.
Keenan, we love you...I love you!!! You've always been like a brother to me since we started school together at age 4 or 5 through the day we graduated college together and even now in the midst of this horrible situation.
Mrs. Allison, your friends and family, and the friends and family of Mr. Tallon...I do not know any of you (as far as I know), but I do love all of you (as well as Mr. Tallon in his absence) because we are all supposed to love each other no matter what...regardless of whether we've met before or not. I pray that all of you can find some kind of peace and solace in my words. Mrs. Allison, I pray you a swift and complete healing. Mr. Tallon, may you rest in peace and enjoy your everlasting days of joy and celebration in heaven.
My name is Mariol. I've known Keenan since we were 4 or 5 yrs old and I'm 25 now. I love him to death, but I am not here to defend him. I just want to speak general truth about the comments I've read and offer prayers and encouragement to all family and friends of the three individuals involved...as well as to Mrs. Allison.
First, although I understand the logic behind it, it's horrible that so much whatever you want to call it (I don't even know how to describe it) is being thrown back and forth at Keenan, his family and friends, and the family and friends of Mr. Tallon and Mrs. Gaudino. I've read through the vast majority of the comments on here and it's sickening how just about everyone is talking about and to each other. Yes, the Tallon and Gaudino friends and families will take up for their loved ones as will Keenan's friends and family will take up for him, but the fact remains that all this mudslinging will not change what has happened nor does it actually make either party feel any better.
I've noticed that some of Keenan's party have said that everyone drinks and drives or has done so before. In the midst of this ruckus, I'll admit that I have done so myself in the past. The fact is, not all have (or will) drink and drive so such comments are untrue and outright worthless.
I'm not going to say how good or bad Keenan was, but those attacking Keenan's character may have REASON to judge, but NEVER the RIGHT to judge. The same goes for those in support of Keenan. None of us on Keenan's side knew Mr. Tallon or Mrs. Allison nor did their party know Keenan nor is anyone without blemish in life; therefore, no matter how hurt, we have no right to judge or wish ill on anyone else regardless of what they've done to us (directly and indirectly). We should all be taking this time to mourn, pray, remember, and LEARN.
