"A Will To Live" - County Line Magazine Editorial

Love, hope, and a will to live! Every parent strives hard to instill these three very  important ingredients into the minds and hearts of their children. In October of last  year, our family suffered the most tragic loss imaginable, the death of our son, Richard  Williams “Will” Trautwein. At 15-years-old, Will was unable to see the love and hope  that surrounded him, and his will to live disappeared. Whether it disappeared for a long  time, or for a moment, does not matter, the fact is that it disappeared, and a family  and a community were left to pick up the “light” that once shown so brightly in Will.
