Death hits close to my son

Every Thursday afternoon, my son attends an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at Brighton Hospital. At yesterday's session, he found out that one of the girls in his group was killed in a car accident last Friday. She was only 23 years old. What a terrible tragedy.

I think this young woman's death has touched my son in a way he hasn't been touched before. This is most certainly the closest experience he's had with death. And while this girl wasn't exactly a friend of his, there's no denying the closeness that develops between people when they are in the program together.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of this girl. Her life was cut much too short.
