A friend posted on Facebook that a friend of her son died suddenly. He was sixteen and had been healthy. Until recently, I would have said, “What do you say to those poor parents?”
Something else I learned from Tim Russert‘s book about his Dad. Michael Gartner of NBC lost his seventeen year old son Christopher to Juvenile Diabetes. He was by all accounts, a good kid. Tim Russert wrote about how his young son Luke looked up to Christopher.
Click on the link where Michael Gartner eulogized Tim Russert and you can see what Tim Russert said in condolence.
