Unhappy Lost a dear friend to suicide, heartbroken and lost

Family fiends of who I ride with, have for many years lost a son and brother two days ago to suicide, only 14 years old, so sad.
I haven't been able to proscess it all yet, I'm flying hone from my trip in europe tomorrow morning, and going directly to another friends house to help get things all ready for the funeraul and be there for his sister who I'm very close to.

Our small community is very strong, well connected and we will celebrate his life instead of grieving it.

It's all so very tragic though, I found out the morning it happened and haunt cried yet, I know I'll loose it when I walk in the front door to my families house to help with everything tomorrow night after getting off the 9 hour flight.

I feel sick to my stomach literally, iv lost now three people, all who seemed like family to me, one being acutaly my cousin....all to suicide.

I'm just lost...sad, hurting and angry.

Felt like posting and sharing the video might help me feel better....I don't know.

I am so sorry for your loss! The family must be hurting so much. :( Lot's of prayers your way for him, his family and friends.

A ride a day keeps the worries away!

Oh my.....I'm sorry.....wow....

Why a young man can't see that the future is bright, well.....

Sorry you have to deal with this.....but I'm glad your friend has a friend like you who cares......

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

it isn't supposed to be like that. if only those who take their own lives could really understand what it does to the survivors.

I am so sorry, Sam. Life's been rough lately .

For so many-the future is just too bleak to imagine-& it's not just the young-this country has really gotten off track. We need a light in that tunnel.

This is indeed tragic yet all too common.
Suicide should never be the way to try and end the pain.
There is nothing to say that will ease the grief of the young mans friends and family.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of this young man. Shalom
