    No words can change any of this, but I just wanted to let you know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I lost one of my sons and a nephew in an auto accident 17 years ago and it is the most heart wrenching thing that can happen to a parent ( the loss of a child). Felicia is my neice and she will be missed too. Once again I am so sorry.
