Hi Luke, Thanks very much for saying that. I know Muhammed is young and perhaps doesn't know any better, but these kinds of questions are simply inapropriate when a family is going through any kind of tragity or hard times. Even though they may make a tragity public, as I did, that doesn't mean they want everything to be made public. There is somethings meant to stay private and remain with the family. Probing for more information can be both painful and rude.
