Getting through a weekend

Been quiet this weekend, surfed in a kind of comatose manner. Been trying to absorb news we heard and that seems so unbelievable to us.

Our friends that pastor in Arkansas lost their youngest son. These are the friends I stayed with for the Metallica Concert. Their son was about 12-13 years old. They found he had hung himself Thursday night and was dead but was brought back in the ambulance though he did not breathe on his own after.

Friday night, peacefully and without a struggle, J passed over.

It's been ruled an accidental death as the investigators believe (and the hospital bore it out as well) that this young man was trying "Thrill Choking" for the buzz and instead it went horribly horribly wrong.

Joe and I still can't believe for this boy always seemed to be so positive and was quick to help when it was needed.

Please keep the Loven family in your thoughts and send healing love, energy and prayers their way as they go on from this.

Funeral's Tuesday and I'm currently trying to work out going to it as its 3.5 hours from here. If not, I'll be driving to see her at home the following week, after things settle down.
