      Unless you were with him, you have no right to assume that he was drinking nor comment on his physical condition before he took this swim.

      You really don't know when to quit, do you? Someone has lost their life in a tragic way, at this point I don't think logistics are important. If you don't have uplifting words, then stay silent.

    Kareem & Valerie,what a difficult time for a parent. Losing a child n questioning how and why.The fondest memories I have of the family at Myetts is witnessing the love n laughter ,the personal friendly attention and the welcoming of my family into their's.
    I'm sure Dakary had adopted the same love of people and life that we had so often witnessed during our stay.
