A Local Tragedy

This is a very sad time for Andrew and our small town. Over the weekend one of Andrew's friends went on a hunting trip with his father. His friend, age 14, died as a result of a tragic hunting accident. We live in a very small town so it has hit everyone here.

They had school today and had several counselors and members from the KY Crisis Respone Team there at the school to help the children cope with this tragedy. Andrew is so very upset. It breaks my heart to see him so sad. And the poor family of this boy, I just don't know how they will get through this. I can't imagine, if it were one of my boys, I think I would just die with them. It is so sad...

They are having his viewing/wake at the school tonight. It is from 6pm-9pm. Andrew will go over there to be with his other friends. The funeral will be held on Wednesday morning at the school. This is such a terrible thing, I feel so sorry for these kids and his family.
