Default I need to share something important

This isn't for sympathy because i don't go that route. It' s for priorities in our lives.

A woman that I'am dating that lives around the corner from me had a tragedy two weeks ago. Her son-in-law left a loaded gun in his room and her grandson was playing with it and shot himself in the head. He was on life support for a week and they pulled the plug Thursday. This is the reason i wasn't posting was the last couple of weeks. i knew the family. I work Hospice and Asst. living and Alzheimer centers. I lost 28 aunts and uncles both parents and my brother my first cousin who i was close to a few month ago. But little children hit home. I'm up every n night with her trying to ease the pain. The daughter is suicidal and his little brother is freaking out.
The things we complain about and worry about and get stressed out about are very little when something happens to you like this. I've had to deal with this for many years counseling families that lost a child. It's something they never get over. usually divorce will happen and the family will become unproductive. Don't let anger with your children carry over. Settle it before you get to bed. Kids can be a pain in the ass, but tell them you love them all the time no matter what their age is. They're still your babies.

Amen brother dog.

The grief the family must be experiencing is unfathomable. Blessings and condolences to them.

I found out last week that a friend of mine is in hospice care. I am actually trying to coordinate with him now on helping with his dog, food, med appts, etc, as I am unsure about how much familial support he has.

The good news is that our circle of friends is trying hard to help fill in any gaps.

Very tragic to say the least, condolences to all.

I have seen my share of this type of tragedy in my various LE careers, never, ever is this something you forget and can have peace with........ever.

The age of the child?

The son-in-law, any action being taken legally?

Just turned 11. They may arrest him after the funeral but i doubt it. Right now his little brother doesn't want his dad to go to jail.
