December 2011 Bumpie needs our T&Ps (sad, baby loss)

A friend just posted on FB that there's a bumpie, Fletcha, from Dec 2011 that lost her little boy this past weekend.  They were driving on the interstate when the car in front of them had a cooler come loose and fall off into the roadway... they slowed to avoid hitting it and were rear-ended by a truck... causing a chain reaction.  They both made it, but their little boy Milo was killed in the car crash.

I just can't even imagine.  Something so stupid as a cooler not being fastened properly or even just stored inside the car and these parents have lost their little boy forever.  :(  Will be hugging my girl tight when I get her from daycare and probably triple checking her straps when I buckle her in to go home. 

Here's the post on Dec. 2011: http://community.thebump.com/cs/ks/forums/1/67029380/ShowThread.aspx

and here's the newspaper article: http://www.yakima-herald.com/stories/2012/07/01/infant-killed-in-crash-on-i-82-five-others-injured

  • T&Ps for their son, I can't bring myself to open the links. Sad
  • That is horrible. They will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    I put a note in the title so you didn't have to open it if you didn't want to see it.  I think above and beyond our anxiety, this woman and her husband could use any good thoughts and prayers (or even donations, if someone was so inclined as there's a donation page linked on the bump post) that they can get.  I know if it was me, I would take some small grain of comfort in knowing that there were people out there thinking of and praying for me... remembering my baby... and maybe they would hug their kids just a little tighter that day and not sweat the small stuff.

    Any of these tragedies could happen to any one of us...it doesn't make it any less important that it's from December board. If you lost your baby and no one sent you thoughts and prayers...how would you feel? 

    I understand it's very difficult to hear, but Milo's parents need these T&P shoutouts. What a sad, sad day for them. I cannot imagine. Let's just all be aware that anything could happen at anytime. Hug your babies a little tighter and let them know how much you love them, have patience when times are hard, and be there mentally and emotionally for them.

    She posted in the title that there is child loss mentioned.  It is your choice whether to look or not.  

    I feel that we can learn lessons from some of these tragedies.  As a mother I think I would find comfort in knowing that other mothers are sending me their thoughts and prayers.

    I think the lesson we can learn from this tragedy is that miniscule things, like taking extra time to make sure things are secure when packing your car, could impact others greatly.

    I know that when we drive places we try to avoid driving behind people with loaded trailers or truck beds.  You can not assume they did a proper job packing or tying things down.

    Life is so precious and we need to cherish the time we have with all the people we love.

    Because a child died, and people need to pay witness to that.  It's not complicated.

    Oh, that is fantastic. This...this is wine. Yeah. Look what all these idiots are drinking. Look at these dicks!
    Obviously it's not really delicious, like hot chocolate or Coke, but for wine...brilliant.

  • There are simply no words for how sad this is.  I'm so sorry for Fletcha and her husband about the loss of precious Milo.  I'm fighting a losing battle with tears right now.  Like many others, I will keep them in my prayers and I'll be hugging Tessa extra tight tonight.

    Thanks Penny. Tragedies like this *should* remind us to be cautious (on the road and otherwise) and take the extra few minutes to consider the safety of our loved ones and others. Small mistakes can have BIG consequences.

    T&P's for sweet Milo and his family  :(

  • This is absolutely heartbreaking. I can't imagine how Milo's parents are feeling right now. I also can't imagine how traumatized the people w/ the cooler must be ... if that was my cooler that caused such a tragedy I'd be completely devastated.

    T&P's for Milo and Fletcha.

  • I understand that this family needs thoughts and prayers. I don't mean to sound cold but I don't think this family will have any idea that the Oct. Moms board on the Bump is "doing" anything nice to help ease their pain. 

    I also understand that I could just not have opened this post. I should have headed the warning. 

    I've just had a sad week and I think that I have just had enough with all that is depressing.

    Gee, I hope you are never in need of support or anything like that.

    Count your blessings. No matter how "sad" your week has been, it could be worse.

    Why post something like this when she could open this post hoping to read some condolences.  Did you happen to think of that before posting your comment?
