if you can get cards to the police station of the town, they will make sure he gets them. they said they were planning on giving him tons of cards that have come in at a birthday party in a football stadium.
BTW - this is the 1st crisis or tragedy of any kind that i have never seen a single photo of the victim or a family member on TV or print news. they must be very fragile and private. the mother was said to be "hanging by a thread." the whole family is going to need therapy. they will need a lot of support.
