Sorry to hear it. Some candles burn too bright.
Yeah, it's hard. His parents are friends. Sweet. He was also a twin. Matt lost another friend yesterday at IU. A girl (in my daughter's sorority). Two in one day. He is a mess.
I remember the first few times I experienced it, very hard. It never makes sense and it doesn't matter how it happens it always feels awful because you can't reconcile it.Sorry to hear about them both, so very tragic.
Neither makes sense. Unfortunately, it is just the beginning of their experience with this thing called "circle of life". When it happens to someone so young, it never makes sense. One of Matt's responses was so heartfelt and spoke to his confusion. He said something like, "You take a girl's life right before she gets a chance to use it." She was going to graduate in two weeks.
