Pilot holds plane for grieving granddad

A reader sends this story:
Last night, my husband and I got the tragic news that our three-year-old grandson in Denver had been murdered by our daughter’s live-in boyfriend.

He is being taken off life support tonight at 9 o’clock and his parents have opted for organ donation, which will take place immediately. Over 25 people will receive his gift tonight and many lives will be saved. ...

When he got there, the pilot of his plane and the ticketing agent both said, “Are you Mark? We held the plane for you and we’re so sorry about the loss of your grandson.”
Credit Southwest Airlines for adding a bit of decency to a terrible story. The mom probably got custody by arguing that she is safer than the dad. I don't know why family courts accept such arguments, because the kids are almost always less safe with the mom.
