Posted 4/22/2007 9:18:47 PM , A death in my neighborhood
Score: 0 

The boy that mowed my lawn died last night crossing the road on his bike.  He was an only child, just 13 years old.  An 18 year old hit him - neither alcohol nor speed were a factor in his death.

I'm in a bit of shock, he was a wonderful kid.  Everyone in the neighborhood knew him to be responsible and cool.  I mean, everyone knew him...  Terrible.

Gads, that's awful. That's too young to have your life ended, his had barely begun.

I'll bet the guy who hit him is feeling pretty bad about it as well.

Sorry to hear that.
