My son is a friend of both boys, especially close to Jess. He was one of the last people to see them before the accident. My son is 19 and I worry about him every time he walks out the door. There is only so much that we as parents can do. I still try to track him down when he is out late and he hates it, but these kids just want so badly to be independent and "on their own". We can't hold on to them forever, much as we would like to. They have to make their own decisions and sometimes the outcome is so unbearably heartbreaking in many different ways. These kinds of accidents are tragedies that are so hard to comprehend.<quoted text>
Out of respect for our family and other parents in the past that may be going thru the same pain, please refrain from comments such as these. Shortly before the accident, one parent called and asked when he was coming home. The time of death was much earlier than posted online.
We have a community in morning over the loss of two young lives. We will never watch them get married or raise children.
I will never be able to make peanut butter fudge at Christmas for him. I will never hear him say Hey Aunt Kathy from across the room.
His parents sit in his truck crying and holding onto his clothing. That is all they have left of a once outgoing, fun, loving child.
Thank you and other readers for respecting our wishes in future comments.
People who are reading and posting, please be sensitive to the friends and families and not judgemental.
I'll be praying for all who loved these boys.
