I have a boy this same age, and it is truly a tragedy. It is so sad. Please pray for the family.

The link includes an address to mail donations so that the family can buy another car. They can’t stand to see the car which ended the life of this sweet little boy. I have sent a check already, and I recommend that anyone else so moved send whatever small amount they can. The thought of what this family is going through is mind-boggling. Perhaps we can ease their suffering in some small way.

This picture is worth a thousand words (scroll down the page a bit). I put it on my computer as a way to remember to pray for all who love him and miss him so intensely.
