    Travis, the boy who was hit by the truck in front of our house last night, didn't make it through the night. He was 11. His injuries were just too extensive. The state patrol is now in charge of the investigation since it has turned into a fatality.

    I can't type much about it right now...I am so, so sad and mad and well, numb. I can't get the sound of him being hit out of my head, the sight of him laying in my front yard and there is blood in my yard from where he was laying. husband is very, very upset as well.

    THANK YOU ALL for the prayers! You all are such an awesome group of people. I will try and keep you updated as to whether or not they find the scumbag who did this...as of now it is still a hit and run.

    Oh, NO Vicki! I am SO sorry.
    I know what you mean about trying to get the sound out of your head. Get counseling if it continues for too long.
    Major, major hugs for all of you.
    God, I am so sorry.

    I sincerely believe that Travis is content and painfree in the
    afterlife. My heart breaks for his family and friends. It is just impossible to understand why such tragic things happen to children and young adults. DDD
