I’m so sorry to hear about your family’s tragic loss. As I’ve mentioned to others who have shared similar stories, I can’t imagine a worse hell than being blamed for the grave injury or death of my own child. It’s bad enough when that reaction is in your own community, I can’t even comprehend if it was coming at me from all over the country and world. I guess there are just a lot of perfect people populating this planet who are doing everything perfectly. Good for them.
