There are no words

I got this email last night.
Squad,
I had been looking forward to writing this report all day. Our most successful and brilliant tour ever – the whole weekend was better than I could imagine, both as a parent and as a coach. I am immensely proud of you all.
However, very sadly, there has been terrible news concerning an U16, Rutlish and Old Ruts boy, at training earlier today. This is not the moment for celebration, there will be news from the Club in due course.
All best,
Jim
From what I can gather one of the U16s died training for sevens at the club. What a terrible, terrible thing, and how his family, friends and everyone who was there must be suffering.

 For now, I won't write his name, speculate about the circumstances:
Nor blaspheme down the stations of the breath
With any further
Elegy of innocence and youth.
