  • Just remind yourself that you did the right thing in going and supporting his family... both blood and in brother/sisterhood.

  • It's an incredible thing to be a public servant in this arena. Most know the risks involved when they decide it's their calling. Despite your pain for this family, be thankful for what you do have and that you are a part of these selfless people. Supporting them is what matters. This too shall pass.

  • That is sad. Sorry for you loose. I think that the number 13 and the day Friday the 13th is lucky though.

  • It was very nice of you to go and show support to his family. I too have a young Angel in heaven, hopefully she will make it a more pleasant place for him when he arrives at his new Home in Heaven. Sorry for your loss.
