my son just found out that one of his friends just passed away. he was involved in a motorcycle accident and lost his life. what really brings this home, i saw the boy get awarded a letter going into the military and watched him get his diploma 5 minutes after my daughter got hers. he was also going to a community college and was involved with the fire dept. he had seemed to be a very respectable young man. for my son to be upset over the loss of his life, tells me that he was an important person for my son.

It was devastating that your son's friend got killed in a motorbike accident. It was very sad that this promising young man lost his life. It was a lovely moment the day your daughter and the young man got their diplomas. The young man's future was going to be in the military which is a dangerous job. It is awful he got killed traveling along the road on a motorcycle.

THis is just terrible.My heart goes out to the boy's bereaved near and dear ones. He has lost his life at such a young age.I lost my own brother when he was just seventeen years old and it was terrible.My mother still feels bad when she talks about him and though it is 36 years ago I remember the pain and agony .

im sorry for what happen to the friend of your son. my sympathy for them. it is true that no matter what we are doing,no matter where we are; if it is our time to face God ,no one can control it. it is only so painful for us, if our love one will die abruptly.

no matter what your relationship, close or not to a person who passes away trough accident would feel whatever your son felt. it's a normal feelings for a normal human being.

I am sorry for the loss. I hope your son and the family of the lost friend get some peace of mind. It is hard to tell why things happens the way they do. Only God who knows the reason.
