Sympathies and condolences to all. No words.
I just want to rewind 2020. We’re so sorry.
Just horrific and beyond unfair for all concerned. I pray to any god that’s listening that the little puppy didn’t suffer.
Every parent’s worst nightmare.
If they need anything. If there’s a gofundme let us know.
We’ll do that, Siobhan, thank you…
Can’t take much more of this. We’re going to need some major league good news REALLY soon.
Please – if anyone knows this family, please let us know how (if any) we can support them right now. My heart aches for all involved. My wish is that the community can rally together in support right now…
Damn. It’s just not fair or right.
We’re praying for all concerned.
It was so nice when we were all off the road there for a while. We did no damage.
I’ll never be able to drive that way again.
Tragic beyond words. The family has our prayers.
Condolences and Prayers to the Family .
Through tragedy, this family has been robbed of the greatest gift possible. My heart aches. I am so very sorry for their unbearable pain and incredible, unimaginable loss.
Hug your kids.
Let us know if they need anything.
Hope that driver is getting some help right now.
Sent a shiver up my spine. So very sorry.
Can we get details .
Rest baby. This is beyond sad. I pray for family
Why wasn’t he air lifted? Also wondering why they didn’t take him to Oakland Children’s Hospital? Maybe John Muir is more equipped??
I miss you so much Leo ❤️ Fly high angel 🙏❤️
I can’t believe you’re gone. It feels like it was just yesterday I was at your apartment downstairs and we were gonna go get ice cream. My parents didn’t tell me until a few months ago. I miss you so much. Fly High ♥️🕊
