How do you deal with lossing a child?

Blake's team was supposed to have a game earlier this week.  The other team had to cancel the game.  Apparently there are a set of twins on the other team and one of them got hit in the head by a ball a few days before the game.  The twin that got hit started acting paranoid and just not acting like himself and after a few days his parents wanted to take him to see a Dr. he said OK let me go brush my teeth and hair.  He never came back down stairs.  Someone went to check on him and found he had slit his throat.  The funeral was this week.  When Blake was telling me all of this my heart just broke for this family. I know that everyone on the baseball team and who has heard this tearriable news has been effected. 

Will you take a moment and send your thoughts and prayers to the team and family that this young man left behind? I can't even imagine what they must be going through.

Thank you,

How horrible. We too have been dealing with this at our school. Different circumstance but suicide nonetheless.

Praying for the family and friends.

Thank you both so much.

It is so hard to lose someone you love. It's not somehting they will ever get over. They will just learn to live with the pain.
