Overnight, one of the teens in our community died after falling while skateboarding. We can’t offer deepest enough condolences to the family, which lost their youngest child (he was 18) and only son. Short as this post is, it took me 15 minutes to write. Every parent’s worst nightmare is the death of a child.
I found a number of videos of the teen skateboarding, on YouTube and on iFilm. Please offer a moment of silence or prayer for Derek Gertz.
