To the Editor,

Once again we are faced with the brutally tragic death of a far too young man who was trying to make his way here on Block Island. As the mother of similar-aged adult children, it greatly saddens my heart and reminds me how fragile we all are. During the long, quiet Covid winter lockdown, Owen Terrell was my next door neighbor and holds a special place in my heart. As a mother and member of this community I feel the eight-by-seven-inch photograph of the crash site and the front page headline of his passing to be insensitive to those who cared for him and in poor taste.
