Rest in Peace… But I think this needs to be said. Don't believe all the antivax stuff you read. Don't post antivax memes, even for fun. People believe them and today two boys are without their parents. This could have been prevented. Covid knows no politics. Get vaxed…

This is so sad. So very sorry to the families and those little boys.🙏🙏🙏

I don't know them but my prayers and condolences to their family and prayers for those poor little boys.

I just went on to read more about this and my heart aches even more. I saw some nasty things on the parents page when the grandma was doing updates and it broke my heart how easily people have thrown stones during such a horrific time in this families life. I lost my Dad a few years ago and my mom in November. My parents were in their 60’s…older than these parents, but I wasn’t ready for either. My heart goes to these children and all the family and friends hurt. If anything is needed or I could be of help I offer it whole heartedly. ❤️

So incredibly sad. Thoughts and prayers from everyone at Dave Hess Racing. We will send a donation to Sue.

So sad, prayers for those little boys and the rest of their family

So sorry, may God give this family strength and peace.

RIP love I had the pleasure of being ur housekeeper the short time that I was 😇 My prayers and condolences with the family during this tough time 🙏🙏🙏

He won 25 features in 1981 and almost that many in 1982. He had some great years with Jim. It sure was fun.

Nicest guy you'll ever meet

Seen him come from the tail to the lead, spin, back to the tail and ended up lapping the field in a wingless show at Hickory speedway. To this day that was the most impressive wheeling I’ve seen in a 410
