    My heart goes out to Rick Flair and his family. Hope Rick can recover from this. It is awful hard when you lose a child.
    BTW most of you would recognize my old Screen name. It was Tombstone.

  • Jason Lentini

    Wholeheartedly agreed. A parent should NEVER have to lay their child/children to rest

  • Jason Lentini

    You beat me to it regarding the same paragraph but there’s only 2 words (no pun intended) difference. Usually its Middleton. . Condolences to Ric and his family.

  • Daniel Schein

    Whatever the cause it’s a true tragedy. Parents should never have to outlive their kids. My condolences to Ric and his family.

    He is 24 or 25 years old, I am willing to bet cash money it was drug related.

    Wow… I really feel bad for Ric. I hope it wasn’t drug related.

    Btw – You guys copy & pasted the same paragraph twice.
