Oh goodness, I am so sorry to read this. Adam and his family are definitely in my prayers, and so is your son. How terrible for Mike to face this sort of tragedy at such a young age when so much is changing in his life.

My thoughts to everyone affected by this terrible tragedy. One of my son's housemates was killed when my son was at University - it affected him deeply for a long time.
post #21 of 28
Oh, Carol, what a tragedy. Prayers to your son to help him get through this and to Adam's family and your family in this trying time.

This is a reminder to all families of student sons and daughters to make sure they REALLY know what is going on. Too many young people cannot cope with the stress of it all, and Christmas is an added burden that they cannot face. Sadly this is one of the commonest times of the year for this to happen. Even if you are sure that your children know you love them, take extra time to talk with them and try to unearth any deep worries or feelings of inadequacy. Reassure them. It is tough, being a freshman and living up to your families' expectations.

I would like to thank everyone for their thoughtfulness and support during this busy holiday time. Adams funeral is today. Please continue to keep his family and friends in your prayers during this horrible time. Thank you so much.

My thoughts, too. A few years ago, one of my students committed suicide on Christmas Eve, and every year I think of Michael and all the lost promise of his life. My heart goes out to your son, and Adam's family.
