Just a few months, one of my very good friends. She's been their for me through a lot of things, she phoned me at work bawling. Her dad had hung himself from the basketball hoop in the backyard while the grandparents were taking a nap. The worst part of it was that it was her sisters birthday. He knew that it was the daughters birthday, and he still did it. I immediately started crying on the phone. There really isn't anything anybody can say to comfort anybody.
He had problem for years, I know he'd done drugs, had a bit of gambling debt. I thought things were getting better for him. He'd even started seeing a counselor.
He drank a bottle of Robitussin before he did it.
I've pretty much gone through all of her thoughts with this, and I can just imagine all the thoughts, questions that go through your head. I lost my dad almost two years ago, it's hard enough losing a parent but from a suicide is just the worst of it all.
It's not fair to anybody to have to deal with such a loss in a way. I just want to hug everybody who has to deal with this.
