My son's best friend died last night.
Even as I type that sentence, I'm overcome with the knowledge that I am a very small pebble in the lake of grief surrounding the family. But I ache for my boy, his beautiful friend--a truly great young man, and their fraternity. At the dawn of adulthood, a cadre of brothers will face the hardest fact of life.
I'll be MIA while we walk through this as a family, plus navigating the return to school.
Thank you for your prayers.
