    I just found out today that a lady I had know for several years now had a horrible tragedy happen in her family. Her 8 year old son died yesterday from a gunshot wound to the head. What I was told is the 8 year old told his older brother he was going out to shoot a rifle and the older brother tried to take the gun from his brother and the gun went off and killed him. When the dad found out what happened he had a heart attack and is now in the hospital. My heart aches for this family and their loss. The boy was a very cute kid. Sweet and kind. I have often told his mother things like "he is going to be a heart breaker when he gets grown" and now the horror. I feel sickened and shocked. All please send prayers to this family.

    What a tradgedy. Not only for the little boy who died, but for his older brother that has to live with an awful accident he never thought would happen. I hope the father makes it OK.
