    I attended a Memorial service of a 20 month old little boy today. He died Christmas Eve morning. He was here to visit his grandmother and somehow during the middle of the night, he went outside. The temperatures reached -40 F with windchill. When his grandmother got up to get ready for work at 6 a.m., she went outside to start her car. She found the little boy lying beside the vehicle frozen to death. Little children like this aren't meant to die. RIP little Michael.

    Oh god how very sad for his family the poor child. I hope they have someone to help them through all this. A parent should never have to bury their child. condolences to their family
