Unhappy Just found out my good friend committed sucide

I woke up to a text this morning telling me my friend took his life.
He left behind his wife and baby girl who isnt even two years old...
I'm like in shock and have just been laying on the couch all morning

Just like wow
He was such a great caring guy....he had it super rough growing up.
All I know is that he got arrested and proceeded to hang himself

I can't believe it

His wife is who I sold my mare Klassy to...we had gotten close as a family and I just can't wrap my mind around the fact I'll never see his smiling face again...

What a horrible thing to have happen; to you and especially to the wife and child. Though I feel sad for you, my most gut reaction is to be enraged at that man , for putting his family and loved ones through this.
My brother overdosed and died 5 years ago. My mom thinks he committed suicide. I think it was accidental, but just the shadow of suicide is a poisonous thing to leave behind.

I am so sorry for you and can really offer no words of sympathy that would put any reason or logic to this, since it can have none.
Go hug Ollie and be joyous to be alive.

Thanks caroline,
My puppy has been cuddled up to me all morning as if he knows something is wrong. It's so surreal

I'm extremely sorry, Klassic. Those are very hard things to understand or accept what happened.

Just be sure that whatever feelings you'll have, it's all normal. We all go through our mourning processes individually.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

I'm sorry for your loss. I had a friend commit suicide over 12yrs ago. Some days it still weighs really heavy and I can't shake off the waste of such a kind and talented soul.

Klassic I'm so sorry to hear this and my thoughts are with the wife and child be left behind.

Unfortunately no one can know exactly what goes on in their minds to drive them to such a horrific thing- I hope no one has to go through this.

Try and enjoy the holiday season as much as possible xxx

Thank you everyone for your kinds thoughts and support, seems like it's just one thing after another for me right now and I'm really ready for it to be over.

It really made me relize how truly grateful I am for my strong loving supportive family!

It still has not hit me that he is gone. I won't know more till after tomorrow when my friend (the wife) calls me. I will be helping her with the funeral and service they do for him...I know I will be an emotional wreck right beside her!

I cannot start to imagine what she is going through but know if I was put in her shoes and it where my man that had done that or in any way died so suddenly I'd loose, I don't even know what I'd do, iv come to love him so much and we have started talking about starting a family together when we are both ready later on.

Its still so un real to me.

Ugh I feel like I'm going to explode into tears and I so just don't want to. I know that if someone where to come up and hug me or say I'm so sorry I'd just burst into tears and wouldn't be able to stop.

KS, I don't know even what to say... My prayers go to the family left behind!
