Boy questions father about heaven shortly before he's hit and killed by a car.

An Illinois father is struggling with the loss of his 8-year-old son, but finding solace in a conversation they had just days before his death.

Carter Vo was riding his bike near his home in Skokie Monday when two cars collided a few feet away.

One car spun out and hit Vo.

"He was a very sweet kid, with a kind heart," Nhu Vo said of his only son as he tried to come to grips with what happened.

At a makeshift memorial, Vo recalled how just last week his only son was asking him about what Heaven was like.

"He asked me, how do I know? But I told him we shouldn't talk about nonsense like that," the father said. "Maybe he knew something I didn't."

Carter Vo had dreams of becoming an engineer or a pilot, his father said.

"He would ask me what I wanted him to be. I would tell him, 'You should be what you want to be, and whatever makes you happy,'" said Vo.
