His Funeral Was Yesterday

Last week a coworker told me a boy that was in Audra's class in school was shot and killed in Detroit for his fancy car. I remember Sean from grade school, he was big for his age and a good natured and easy going child. I was shocked and saddened for a life cut short, but didn't post as I was waiting to confirm facts. All I ever found was his obituary in the local news and his name on the funeral home sign. I wonder why it's being kept so hush, hush.

My friend told me that her son had plans to hang out with Sean later that day and kept text messaging him to find out when he'd be back, so they could do so. After repeated texts without a reply, her son's last messge was, "Hey, Sean R U Dead?" He was.
