My thoughts and prayers are with this lovely family on this sad day. I know personally what you all are going through, having buried my youngest son just a year ago. I pass my prayer for peace and understanding to all which is almost unfathomable at this stage. Know that my prayers are with each of you as you individually face the loss of this loving, caring young man. There are no words to remove the void and empty place in your hearts. Take care. jhay
