His beautiful mother and father, Briejet and Jose, are still in the hospital and will be for some time as she is in critical condition with several serious injuries including collapsed and punctured lungs, broken pelvis and ribs, loss of movement in her right leg. Jose is looking at many procedures and also a possibility of neck surgery. I cannot comprehend how a parent can endure the loss of a child, while trying to heal themselves. How they can make the hardest decisions of their lives, while barely able to feed themselves and understand what exactly happened.
Levi’s older brother, Joey, is 12 years old and is being so brave. He is heartbroken to have his whole family and life upside down, and trying to understand why he lost his best friend. It is a devastation to witness this young boy try and process what is happening to his life.
The financial burden that this family is about to endure is overwhelming. Burial and funeral services for Levi, exorbitant medical bills, and the time for both parents to be off work to recover, physically, mentally, and emotionally.
My heart aches to know that this could have been prevented. My friends, please do not drink and drive ever. My family is grieving the loss of our child. We are lost. There are no words. Please pray and share.
