So Sad!

A 14 year old friend of my Sons tragically died yesterday. They have been friends since they met at primary school and went to rugby together. They used to have sleepovers here and at his house. Such a lovely boy. He had some sort of reaction to acne medication but there will be a post mortem. What a horrible task to have to make a card for his poor parents Claire and Graham who I have known for sometime. I don't know how they are going to get through it. They had a terrible day in school yesterday pupils and teachers crying and they brought in a councellor for those who needed it. Non uniform day today and the kids are going to wear rugby shirts in memory of Shaun. So sad!!!!! Shaun will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
