    No parent should outlive their child.

    22 and 25--way too young.
    I see a lot of these little memorials in my travels and I always wonder what happened.

    I like #3 the best.

    My guess is a combination of alcohol and speed.

    Ya, can't imagine loosing a child at that age.

    I had a cousin that I was not close to murdered in his mid twenties. I saw from a far the devistation it caused the family

    Just yesterday three local 16 year old boys were killed racing against another car of teens. As near as I could tell from the story, they were on a rural 2-lane, car #1 passed a delivery van, car #2 attempted likewise, to meet a fire truck head on. Three firefighters treated and released, three young men dead. As someone who buried my own son a month before his 15th birthday, I know the families' agony is only beginning.

    So sorry to hear that. I know time dulls the pain, but it never really goes away, just becomes managable.

    No problem. I don't know if you have a religious faith, but for me personally, having a faith makes these kinds of things more bearable.

    Yes, I do. There were still some very difficult years after our son died. Some things will just never make sense in this life.
