I thought maybe that was the reason. I'm so very sorry. It's not like losing someone to disease or old age.
Please don't blame yourself. Those truly determined to commit suicide and not just looking for attention rarely give anyone any clues. They didn't kill themselves to get away from you, they did it to get away from themselves and the demons they were carrying around inside.
Have you and your family considered therapy? I believe very strongly that it can help quite a bit in these types of tragedies.
