TRAGEDY: Not the time to be pointing fingers

Re: “City says clear-cut not factor in death” (TNT, 9-2).

The recent tragedy in Gig Harbor leaves the entire community mourning the loss of Jamie Fay. The outpouring of support from local businesses, families and neighborhoods shows the character of our city. In times of need, we come together.

It saddens me that some feel the need to point fingers or place blame when the focus should be on this young family and how we can show our support.

It is too early to reach conclusions as to the factors that may have contributed to this tragedy, and those factors will be analyzed in time. For now, let’s all as a community come together and offer our support and condolences to the Fay family.
