A former neighbor and class mate of my 17 year old daughter died Friday. I don't know all the details of his passing yet. "Mello" and his family lived across the street from us for several years before moving to another neighborhood a few years back. Mello's older sister and my oldest daughter are still good friends to this day. Mello was also my youngest daughter's Social partner when they were in 7th grade, and all four kids were on swim team together.

I'm shocked, stunned, don't understand what's going on. Same with my girls....

I'm sorry Dave. This is a tough one to understand, when these things happen.

Dave,

Sorry to hear that one of your daughter's classmate passed away. I can only imagine (I don't have children myself) that that has to be one of any parents worst fears. Thoughts and prayers go out to all affected by this.

Tough morning. I'm hurting because my kids are hurting. This is perhaps the first time someone their age, who is close to them, has died. My oldest was crying in church. My youngest didn't bother to get out of bed. She says she doesn't feel well, but I think it's hitting close to home. So far, all we know is Mello's dad went to wake him up Friday morning for school and he was already gone. I can't imagine what Dennis and Karen (Mello's parents) are going through. I don't want to imagine it. I'd die from a broken heart if something happened to one of my girls.

Very sorry for you and your family's loss Dave.

I lost my brother who was ten years my junior when he was only 22 so I know what the shock involved is like. My prayers go out to Mello's entire family. It is gonna be a long grieving and healing process for them.

Stay strong for your kids -- it's hard to fathom what the parents are going through and
it's worse for those who are friends ...

Thoughts & prayers to all those that are in need ...
