My youngest son lost one of his high school friends to a car accident on Sunday...They have been friends their whole life, and my oldest son was his roommate at college. I've been encouraging them to talk more and hang out with their friends. My younger son isn't one for expressing himself easily, and my oldest son hasn't said much either.
They have assured me that they have been talking about it with other friends, but I still worry.
My heart is breaking, and I just want to ease their pain.
Aaron was such a sweet young man, high school athlete, friend, and he may have survived it he would have had on a seat belt.
I always tell my kids to wear their seat belts, I know my oldest doesn't because when we get in the car it just isn't habit for him, and I have to tell him to buckle up.
This is just so hard
