    This is very sad. (My father was very afraid of bees and just as afraid to use his epipen shot to treat the stings. )

    Always carry an Epi Pen, even if you have no allergies to bees or wasps. I carry one.

    @ #3 Really?

    I’m not outraged. Do you know why? I am not outraged at you exercising your First Amendment right of freedom of speech.

    How else would we see who you are?

    Once again Really? your comment goes right over Lee’s head at the speed of light. Thanks for being “who you are” someone with a brain and common sense. Something that is sorely lacking in at least one of the comments here……

    Condolences to the family. Bee’s scare the heck out of me.

    Gotta love it Pink, when pinheads think freedom of speech means that no one can disagree with the nitwittery they’re spouting.
