I’m always frustrated when people shortchange reasons behind death. Whether it be suicide or flying a plane under the influence, the reasons do not diminish that person’s life. Halladay brought a lot of joy to a ton of people. That shouldn’t be diminished.
That said, I also didn’t join in the ‘this is so sad’ mystique that surrounded this event. The guy got into a high performance plane with drugs and alcohol in his system. That he crashed it is not a surprise and we can still honor his life without finding that he died some tragic event.
I feel for his kids, who probably didn’t know their father like most kids would.
