I know you and your family have been going through so much, and it is unusual for a family to lose 2 members on the same day.
My love and ((HUGS)) .
If someone is elderly, it is somehow more "expected" .... but still shocking and sad....(I know, when I lost my beloved Dad, I was numb for months) and when it is children involved... anyone's child....lost somehow through illness or taken in a horrific, senseless act, it seems so much more tragic somehow.
As a teacher, I find this abhorrent ---because honestly, a school is a sanctuary. A neutral place for learning and joy and has nothing to do with violence.
This young man was obviously mentally unstable and chose the wrong path to express his anger at his mother. I pray for his soul.
I have already thrown up once over this today...and I may just go do it again..
Colleen, you always show so much courage, hon.... and I know you will remain strong, my friend.

Misdiagnosed for 25+ years; Finally Diagnosed with Celiac 11/01/10. Double DQ2 genes. This thing tried to kill me. I view Celiac as a fire breathing dragon --and I have run my sword right through his throat.

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.
Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and hard work. have a good day! :-) Paul

Please know that you and your family are in my prayers tonight and in the days ahead.
I must add your beautiful card was one very bright spot in a very tearfilled day. Thank you.
Big, big HUG!

Thinking of you and saying prayers
- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol
- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.
