That's very sad. It's always hard to try and make sense of someone so young dying. When I was a freshman in college, a good friend of mine from high school died. The hardest thing was that she wasn't sick and the autopsy never revealed a cause of death. Many pixies for your son and his friend's family.

Than you again. This man was diagnosed when his first child was 6 months, so at 4 she is an only child. He has also had a fine, albeit short career and I am sure his wife and child will be well cared for. They have a wonderful network of friends.

I thought about going down for the services but I just bought my ticket for a trip at the end ofthe month. My biggest (somewhat selfish concern) is that my grandchildren were very close to him and his family (his daughter is my grandson's best friend) yet at 2 and 4, they are too young to really understand.

I don't think this is selfish at all. It is a grandmother who loves her grandchildren and knows that because they were close to this man and his family and are friends with the daughter that they are going to be hurt and confused. There's not much if anything you can do long distance but I am sure, because if there's one thing I know about my fellow Passporters it's that they're a caring and supportive group, that if there was anything you could do to help you would. When these tragedies occur it's very easy for those that effected but not at the epicenter to be forgotten about (emotionally) and for children especially ones as young as your grandkids that can be devastating. : pixie:
