So sorry for their loss--this is one of those "why do bad things happen to good people" questions. Hopefully they will be surrounded by those who love them in the difficult days ahead and will be able to draw strength from the same. Hold them close in your heart, GB. I know it is hard on you as well, but if you can hold them close, grief shared is easier to bear.

Today they tried taking him off the respirator to see if his breathing would kick in. It did not. He had a final exam today by a team of ten doctors. Unfortunately there was no change in his condition. He has been officially declared brain dead. I can not imagine what his parents are going through right now. At least they have a lot of love and support surrounding them right now.

It is over. He is gone, but his organs are being donated so at least something good will come out of this horrible tragedy. Thank you all for your support and kind words you have shared during this. I cannot tell you how much it has meant to me.
