    Last nite a 21 young man who is a family friend was cleaning his gun. It went off and shot him in the head and killed him instantly. He is one of my son's group of friends and they've all been best friends since middle school. These boys are devasted. He was always polite and well mannered when he came to our house. His Mother sang at my brother's funeral this past May. My heart is heavy. He is one of those that you instantly like and are drawn to. He is the third one to die by accident in the past two years and the second from a shotgun accident.

    I am so sorry to hear this. The same thing happened lase week to a younger boy, 14-15 or so. His parents bought him a gun for Christmas and it went off and killed him, he was an only child and the parents are devastated.

    I can't imagine their pain. I am sorry for your freinds and familys-Carla

    I am deeply sorry for the loss of this young man. I'm also deeply concerned for your son. So much loss in such a short time, keep an eye on him please.

    Would he be open to the idea of a grief counselor?
