“The thing that really makes me feel much better about this is they died doing what they loved to do —  they were drinking, they were going fast and they were together,” (one of the dead men’s sister) said. “It gives me comfort, it does, to know those three things.”   

 UPDATE: The Boulder Daily Camera editor responded to the readers’ reactions.
