Thanks for all the kind thoughts and comforting words. It really made a difference to me. We are waiting for the medical examiner to tell us what happened, hopefully to add a little closure.

When I see movies where a child has died, I cry with the parent. It hits such a raw nerve that I just can’t help but feel it personally. I am so sorry for you and your family travelover. The closest I’ve ever been is the lost of a young nephew that my daughter was very close to growing up. I could do nothing but choke down my tears at the funeral just to try to be strong for the parents. Again, my deepest condolences. As simple as it is, all I can do is say a prayer, but I will certainly do that. You’ll be in our thoughts.

So sorry to see this. My condolences and prayers for you and your family.

Travelover, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Any loss is awful. When it happens in the wrong order it's tragic. I will keep you and yours in my thoughts and prayers.
