  1. Houstin and Chad were best friends. We all know this is just a horrible accident. The family and friends of both boys are going through hell right now. Please keep everyone in your prayers. Houstin touched so many lives. He was a wonderful young man. Chad is such a sweetheart, I know this is killing him knowing what he has done.
