My friend Jamie committed suicide yesterday morning. She was 24.
I'm sorry for your loss, brother. I'll say a prayer for you and her, and her family.
My condolensces John, that is terrible!
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.
Wow. Sorry to hear that John, my condolences.
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.
That's horrible. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
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.
Sorry for your loss. Been through it myself. Still wonder why sometimes.
Thats terrible, my thoughts and prayers will be with you and her family
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.
You are in my prayers,as well as your friends family..hope her boyfriend does not go off the deep end as well..that is a terrible burden to bear,knowing she used his gun......
Suicide is becomming more comon lately it seems,and the holidays always seem to bring many people down,and sometimes it becomes too much to bear..I have been there myself,and all I can say its the pits....
Dang that sucks, John!
I hope 2007 is a better year for you and yours!
wow...my condolances. You'll all be in my thoughts
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..
I'm sorry to hear of your loss John, It seams like the easy way out but it never is easy for those that are left to grieve her loss. My prayers go out to her family and to yours
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.
Jesus....I'm sorry to hear that, bro.
Sorry to hear that man, losing a friend sucks.
Sorry to hear it, prayer sent.
