    Condolences Brother. That is very hard for those left behind. I had a friend that did that. It was very hard on his family. His friends seemed to help ease their pain a bit.

    Sorry to hear that man. Just be there for her family if they need an ear to talk to or a shoulder to cry on. Once again, sorry for your loss.

    Thanks guys. I've known her for a long time through her cousin, who I went to school with. Her boyfriend is one of my best friends on the fire department. She left behind a big mess, which I spent yesterday afternoon cleaning. I've done alot of suicide clean-ups at work, never really bothered me, but cleaning up after a friend was probably the worst thing I've ever done. I had to do it though, because the aparment complex would have charged my buddy for it otherwise. The least I could do for him right now. He's really tore up about it, she used his gun and he's blaming himself.

    Wow. News of a suicide always shocks and saddens me. I always wonder what in someone's life is so bad that they feel the only solution is to give up. My condolences to you for the loss of your friend, and to those that loved her and cared for her as well.

    I am so sorry...

    I had a good friend who killed himself back in 86..when I read your post, a lot of bad memories came back..

    I wish the people contemplating suicide would understand that if they go through with it, all they are doing is destroying the people they leave behind.

    I hate to sound harsh, but that is so f**king unfair, to leave people behind wondering forever what they could have done to stop it.

    After my buddy mike offed himself with his dads .38 to the head, they moved shortly thereafter.. I helped move the family, and jesus h. christ, it sucked so bad to move mikes stuff..and to deal with the father who had to be sedated for 3 f**cking months afterwards.. and all of the anger that the family vented at each other about destroyed them.

    goddamit this stuff tears me up.. my prayers are with you, the family, and the deceased.. I pray she found the peace she was looking for...try and push the family into grief counseling ASAP.. it would help to prepare the family for the aftershocks..

    Tom

    wow man. I'm sorry to hear that. it's really bad no matter when, but especially bad this time of the year because you always have to remember it and deal with the loss around Christmas time when it's suppose to be a happy time. I know, my brother in law killed himself on the 19th also 10 yrs ago and I'm the one who found him. so every year we always have to deal with that pain but it does get easier, not much, but some.

    it's going to be tough on him and he needs someone to talk with. don't let him withdraw like I did and let it eat him alive. suggest for him to see a psychiatrist (sp?), a minister to talk to, or you guys talk if you can. it's very important that he does this or it will get the best of him. I wish I had of then but I'm finally coming to terms with it.

    you guys will be in my prayers.
