I think the doctors need to do more of a physical exam that would have more detail on kids health. Hopefully that would slow down alot of deaths on our teens. God Bless you Ms. Tracy.

My father passed away at 41 , 7 years ago from a torn aorta. We did an autopsy and it revealed that his aorta ripped apart and he bled to death internally. I have been to the doctor a number of times and I am now diagnosed with Marfan's Syndrome. It affects the connective tissues. I have never had any serious health problems , but now I go to a cardiologist 2 times a year for monitoring. If you know of any one that is abnormally tall, skinny, double jointed, poor eyesight , crooked teeth ( theses are a few symotoms) please urge them to see a cardiologists. This kind of death is preventable, but you must be monitored... Sorry for the Family . You are in my prayers

Terrel, you were a great friend to everyone and you knew how to deal with things like this. Monday in 7th period was so boring without you. I wish you could have seen your desk though. Everyone still says bye to you when we leave. We miss you.

I'm a sophomore at CHHS. Walking through the halls monday, i cried. Everyone was talking about how fantastic you were. I bet you'd be happy to know that Tyquan stayed strong for you. I know that i only met you once, talking to your brother in the hallway.You were nice to me, and really sweet.You were loved by so many people, and you made an incredible impact. Everyone misses you. I wish I couldve gotten to know you better.Heaven is lucky to have you.
God Bless.

His brother would hit him very hard in the chest and back on a routine basis. A punch with all his might. I thought it was just boys being boys. I never thought this could happen. Very sad, indeed.
