a guy doesn't realize how tight knit a community they live in until something tragic happens. pretty sparse population around here and everyone either knows eachother or is related. the night before last a friend and his son (friend to my sons) was killed on a dirt bike. they were headed home from dinner cross country driving into the sun and wrecked - the dad is beat up physically, bruised lung, broken ribs, bones, etc but i cannot imagine what he is going thru emotionally with his boy killed in the wreck. its amazing how the community is reacting to help as much as it can. a person can do something for granted a thousand times but you just never know for sure...

Tough one 76. I have observed as the influx of people move in they create a critical mass and the community is essentially gone. Hayguy and I can attest to having many neighbors we don't know and who don't want to know us even though our families have stayed put for generations. Count your blessings you still have a community and we are praying for your friend.

Sad deal for sure. Not sure how or if I could handle something like that. :?

I hope your friend can draw on the strength of the community and find peace.

Prayers.
