    My brother knew Lee, i didn’t. My 20yr old brother Jonathan Clough passed away unexpectedly on October 23rd. about 2 months ago. I know what your son Chad is going through. I went to the viewing of Lee for Chad. He was touched, i’m glad i can be there for him especially when i’m one of the very few that understand what he’s going through. I’m very sorry for your loss, i hope one day your pain will lighten.
