    for no reason should you leave an 18month old baby behind… an adage says “some else eyes cannot do the work of our own eye”…

    A death that befit a chain drunkard got an innocent boy all because of one carelessness just for burying the dead, supported by one useless afternoon NAP.

    Both parents deserve a thorough flogging for being so careless leading to the death of this PROMISE.
