Hearing the sudden and tragic loss of another person taken before we were ready to let him go brings back the memories of what a nightmare death can be. The shock can be so devastating and unreal - and looking back now, it still doesn't make any sense to me. That first month is unfathomable.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Black family and all of his friends.
