Tragic loss

I just had a tragic loss in my family. My 17 year old cousin was killed in a car accident. This is just so terrible. I feel awful for his parents (my aunt & uncle) as he was their world. He was a great person, so kind and caring, so sweet. Had his whole future in front of him. I don't know how I am going to do the funeral tomorrow and Saturday...

I am so very sorry to hear this very tragic news, Lperica10.

Sudden death like that and so young is such a shock. It is beyond comprehension.

Sending you a lot of support right now...

am so sorry. Particularly as I do know what it's like....nothing will console his parents and indeed the wider family.

While not particularly religious, I do wonder if there are evil forces at work. It always seems to be the nicest and kindest who suffer. I think they are in a better place, as is my 8 year old triplet son...perhaps there really is some truth that some are too good for this world. Hope you can support your family and yourselves. It wil be dreadful for you, particularly as he was obviously deeply loved by many...perhaps in time something can be turned to good..but suspect there will not be a great deal of comfort in that.

With so much love and compassion, Chris xxx
