    Fantastic article about a wonderful family! Dankuykendall is what we call a “Player Hater” and wants to read articles about young black men going to jail than to see a family of several black men come up from gang infested Tacoma to living the American dream! Thank you TNT for bringing us this inspirational story!

    No dankuykendall is what you call a realist. Where are the stories about people that are not famous? I have nothing against the Trufants, in fact I admire their drive and determination. I would just like to see ordinary people get this attention that just want to help others or have faced adversity coming out on the winning side.

    Lojack has no idea who or what I am so is making baseless racist statements. Pull your own head before you worry about mine.
