Things have been a bit hard at home for my son, Ashley, as last week his best friend Elliott was killed while he stood on the side of the road waiting for the school bus to collect him. Elliot was only 13 when he was hit by a car, some of you may have seen it on the news last week.
There is a memorial service for him at school tomorrow (Wed 14th Jan) and then we have to wait to find out when the funeral is before my son can finally put it all behind him, so to speak!!
We took some flowers and a card down to where it happened at the weekend, so that Ashley could pay his respects.
I hope that your thoughts and prayers can be with Elliott's family and friends at this difficult time.
