I had a text from my son not long after I dropped them off in school saying someone they knew had died.
Turns out the lad was on his way home from football practice, and as the car he was travelling in was turning into the road where he lives (half way down a fairly steep hill) a lorry smashed up the back of them. His life support was switched off at 3am this morning, what would have been his 16th birthday.
Both kids are devastated, and yet again, we have to remind ourselves how precious life is
RIP Dan xx
