Loss.

Losing a loved one is very painful. And oh, it hurts. Not sure what to say, or how to talk about this. Just know that I am extremely sad. Our family recently lost a very special person. Though his decision will haunt our family forever, he will not be any less loved. We'll ache. For a very long time. Hunter...we will miss you with the greatest misses there ever were. And we will continue to love you in your absence as much as we loved you in your presence. I wish you were still alive. Our family will never be the same again.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is a 24-hour, toll-free suicide prevention service available to anyone in suicidal crisis. If you need help, please dial 1-800-273-TALK (8255). You will be routed to the closest possible crisis center in your area. Call for yourself, or someone you care about. Your call is free and confidential.

    When my grandfather killed himself in 2005, I remember my pastor said to remember that even though Iwe dn't understand all the reasons he made that choice, it doesn't diminish the role he played in my life. The loss is still haunting and unlike any other.

  21. So very sad for the tremendous loss you and your family is experiencing. Suicide is especially sad because you can't prepare for it. It's terrible when a person sees that as their only form of solace. :( Hugs to you all.

  27. My heart breaks for you. The loss of a loved one whos decision was in their own hands is one that is probably the hardest to deal with.
