Reading Adams death notices in today and yesterdays papers tonight made me cry. It is so terribly sad. I knew him 5 years ago when I was with James. A few months back I got in contact with James again and accidentally he's become one of my very closest friends. This last week has been so hard not being able to do anything to make him feel better, knowing he was at the hospital with Adam and especially when he said the life support was going to be switched off. It is so unfair that this family has to go through this. It wasn't anyones fault. It was one of those terribly tragic things that happens.

One of my friends told me last night that he also knew Adam. Of his group of friends 3 of them have died this year. I didn't know what to say to that. How do I, who hasn't lost anyone really close to me to death and has only been to one teenage funeral, say something to someone who has been to 3 this year alone?

i agree just be there

My thoughts and prayers go out to you and his family

several years ago my cousin went through this when he had to decide to turn off his sisters life support system she had been involved in a car accident on the way home from work. Her car was hit by a drunk driver of 70.

It was particularly hard for my uncle and aunty they originally had 4 children. one daughter died as a baby 40 years ago of cot death, then they lost Jo. Now they only have 2 children left.

It is so sad how sometimes the good die young
