@will ECCA, Did you know Nick? I knew Nick & saw him at LEAST 5 days out of 7 a week and he was a good kid, who had lots of friends and family who loved him. We are all still dealing with his passing and this is what you have to say? Shame on you!!!

My heart goes out to Nick's parents and friends. My son was his friend. So very sorry for your loss. And in response to the "will ECCA" person... shame on you...you are a heartless POS!! You are insinuating something you have no knowledge of. I lived in EC for 14 years and never heard of such a callus act (leaving trash) I pray you will grow a heart...and a brain to go with it!!!

To "will ECCA", Seriously, this is what you have to say after a tragic loss of a young life? Pretty callous and self-righteous you are. I hope you never have to endure such a loss in life and be met with the same callous attitude.
will ECCA allow it?

Whenever one of the youths kills himself (and usually a friend or two) the locals will deposit a pile of trash at the crash site. Being at the entrance to a classy upper crust East Cobb subdivision this time, will the East Cobb Civic Association and the HOA allow the pile of trash? If so, for how long?

Anyhow i hope everyone in East Cobb considers the "modern conveniences" of the automobile to be worth the life of this young man we all sacrificed to our true God: the car.

People die in bus and train accidents. Should we get rid of those too?
