Elliot came home last week and mentioned that his friends brother had passed away. He didn't know how or when, but just that the guidance counselor said he passed on and it made him sad. Then at Bible study, he burst into tears and cried in the other room for about 15 minutes saying that it made him sad and he missed his friend who had been gone all week. Later, I read a letter he had written to his friend saying how sad he was and that he got tears in his eyes when he heard it. He said he was praying and he (the brother) would always be in his heart. (Elliot's heart) I heard the next day that the boy who died was 18 and mentioned to his dad that he felt like shooting himself. The dad gave him the gun, and he did just that.
