How do I tell my daughter her friend was killed? **Bump-date added**
This is one of my daughter's best friends. I can't imagine what her parents are going through and my DH and I are wondering how to tell her. I can't stop crying because of the pain this is going to cause.
**Update - my DD is 11. I heard the story on Friday night, but didn't realize it was my DD's friend until this morning. I saw her picture on the news and started to cry. This is the first person who has died that my DD knows and this is so difficult. They just graduated middle school in June.**
••Bump-date: I told her and she broke down. I promised that we'd go to the memorial and funeral. It even made my DH cry (her stepdad). She hasn't been able to sleep, so she's in my bed, just laying her and talking when she needs to.
Thank you for the moms who offered support, guidance and kind words. They were all greatly appreciated.••
