It was sudden. It was unexpected. It was awful. He had a blood clot on his spine that suddenly paralized him.
He was fine at 9pm, and he was dead at 10 30 pm.
Thank God Jason came home when he did. He had only been in the house 20 minutes or so when it happened. If I had been alone with the boy I don't know what I would have done.
We all got to say goodbye. Jason is building a coffin-I can hear him hammering in the garage as I type. We'll bury Tommy tomorrow under a tree overlooking the river.
Thank god the ground isn't frozen.
