Big big story here in the Gay State...lots of local coverage.A police motorcade,a visit to the Patriots training camp,hundreds of thousands of birthday cards...the whole works! I worked for years in a major hospital that didn't have a pediatric service because there was a major pediatric hospital literally next door.As tough as it was seeing 85 year olds die I never could have handled watching a 5 year old die.It would have broken my heart.
