The Calgary Sun has an article up featuring comments from Bret Hart regarding the deaths of Chris Benoit, wife Nancy and son Daniel.

"I don't know the details, and I'm not sure I even want to know," said Hart, who had to stop and compose himself when discovering the tragedy.

"He was like a family member to me, and everyone in my family is taking it real hard. It's almost like reliving the whole Owen (Hart) death over again. Chris was always one of the good guys -- a straight guy and a hard-working guy. When you list off all the qualities of someone like Benoit, he had a lot of integrity and was a good, family man. He was really respected and really loved by everybody."
