Greenwich Resident- I totallty agree that Greenwich has a very capable staff. However gunshot wounds can be stabilized by EMS and should be treated at a trauma hospital. I am sure the Greenwich physicians did whatever they could for this young man, However, Port Chester needs a trauma hospital in closer proximity. As a matter of fact it needs to replace United Hospital. Greenwhich Hospital is being overly utilized.

I mean, I am sympathetic to the family because sometimes people who screw up like that early in life can turn around, but they are not doing society any favor either ... but then those of you who like to buy illegal drugs and think there is no fallout from it are deluding yourselves - until and unless our stupid drug laws are changed and/or unless you are just smoking hydroponic marijuana you grew yourself ...

I want to thank those who have been there for my family in this rough and hurting path. We see comments that hurt as more than console us but everyone is entitled to their opinions. im proud of my brother, he was always smiling, laughing and helping those around him. Label him as you may like. a week before he passed away he spent 10 days with his 2 nephews and a niece whom he had met for the first time. He was a loving uncle,he will always hug and kiss them and say im your uncle Willy Wonka. Hes now resting in peace, he had made decisions for the future he was eager to change. He wanted to finish school, go to college and have a family. Its amazing how his nephews and niece helped him realize how life really was meant to be:however someone didnt allow him to accomplish his goals.I hope PCPD soon make justice for Willy. We will Never forget u; your Princess Naihrobhy, little men Xavi and Aaron love and miss you!
