My youngest went back to school today. Grade 12. His last year of regular school. He wasn’t particularly enthusiastic about going back, but he was definitely upset when he came home. When he got there, he discovered one of his best friends drowned on the weekend. So send thoughts out to the family of Jaoa Ribeiro … he will be missed.

    When I was in high school, one of the IN kids got electrocuted while camping overnight for concert tickets (he chased down a frisbee).

    I know it altered the lives of many of the IN crowd. Hell, I remember the morning after it happened, and I couldn’t stand the guy.

    Condolences to the family — and to the kids in that school. And to your son, too.

    That’s horrible. I can’t even begin to imagine. My heart goes out to them.

    Please tell Culry how sorry we all are. Losing a friend to such a horrible accident so young always stays with us. I lost two in high school and still think of them often. It never feels like but it is true that time does ease the pain.

    All of you are in our thoughts.

    Thanks – I’ve passed your thoughts on to my son.

    What makes it even more tragic is that the young man died just 16 feet off shore.
