A gofundme account has been setup to collect donations to assist the family during this tragic time.

Tragic, my prayers go out to all.

Please change the wording here. 12 years old is not a teenager.

I am in tears this morning…suicide is tragic and when it is a child it is beyond comprehension. I was touched by suicide 5 times last year. I know the absolute grief anger, and confusion that engulfs those close to the victim.

A 12 year old?! I think that may be the youngest suicide I have ever read about. Not even a teen. still a child. What a shame.
