I lost a good friend in a hunting accident years ago, when he was only 18. It was the first loss I ever experienced. We lived in a very small town, and many from the high school went to the funeral. His name was Larry, and he wasn't very popular or anything, but many mourned his death at so young.. He and his new brother in law were goofing around with guns, walking home from hunting, and that's another safety no no (of course). People always think they've removed all the bullets but it's not always true (I have an4 uncle who shot himself in the foot once, when I was very young).
- Yes, it's very sad and tragic when we lose people so young.
