    Hug as tribute

    Hi all,
    a good friend of mine suffered the tragic and totally unexpected death of her son in his sleep last night. He was only 7 and i am at a total loss as to what to say or how to find any 'positive' in this situation. What i'd like to ask ALL of you to do, as a tribute to this little guy, is to take the time today to give your children an extra hug and tell them how much they are loved, we all assume we will have the chance to do it tomorrow, sadly its not always possible.

    I am so sorry for your friends loss, I will be sure to give my children extra hugs today (they are never to old) and thanks for reminding us of what we sometimes take for granted. Sending you and your friend extra hugs and prayers.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    How very very heartbreaking - I can;t even begin to imagine the grief and shock his mother must be feelin right now. It is an awful thing to outlive your children. Our children can be snotty, demanding, defiant, messy, whiny, and tempermental...but stories like this remind you that they are also truly God's greatest gift. I for one, will be sure to give Riley extra hugs - and to the mother, prayers for peace , comfort, and healing.
