    I am so very sorry for your loss. You might have heard of me, Jill Biddle. I to have lost a child a month and a half ago. My daughter Maria Droesch was 17 and going to be a senior.

    So so very sorry for the loss of your angel; I’m yet to recover from the shock and can’t imagine what you all are going through but I pray strength for your family at this very difficult time. The ripple effects of this unfortunate event might never disappear but I pray the sight of Grayson’s green tractors, the memories of him mattress surfing or riding his motorcycle give you the strength you need to deal with the sadness. If there’s anything you think I can assist with, please don’t hesitate in reaching out. God’s best to you and yours.

    Sleep well, Grayson.
