Gee, I guess I would kill myself also if I had nowhere to live but Maui. Especially in the winter. Loser.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I met him a long time ago where I used to work. I was trying to fix our kids up with each other (OK, they were about 6 years old at the time!). He was a wonderful, sweet and good looking guy. I'm really sad to hear this. RIP, Wyatt. I'll always remember you

This is the saddest news I've heard. I met Wyatt a long time ago when our kids were about 7 years old. He was one of the nicest, sweetest guys I'd ever met. I was just sorry he was married at the time! RIP, Wyatt. I'll never forget you.
