“I spent Mother’s Day planning my son’s funeral, writing his obituary, instead of having breakfast or flowers or ‘I love you, Mom,’” Muai said.
“Try to imagine what it would be like and multiply that by infinity and that’s kind of what it’s like … there’s no words.”
Tua, who was in sixth grade, was described as a child who loved football and had a “zeal for adventure.”
His father had passed away a year and a half ago.
