Oh mama, I am so sorry to hear this. I will send love and light to you, to help you get through this.

I know it isn't the same, but my dear cousin committed suicide too, but many years ago, nearly 18 years now. We were very close, and it left me very sad for so long. We never got over it, but we all started learning how to put our lives back together again.

My prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Thank you all for your thoughts and good wishes. We had a wake for him on Sunday which was nice. Sad, but nice to see distant family members and old friends.
Thank you for sharing a piece of him with us

I am so sorry mama.
My best friend just lost her dad in March to suicide.

My friend has found groups to be helpful and here are links she also has found helpful:

This book she printed out and has kept to read when she needs to, it is really good. Also, it is good for your family and friends to read to help you-

http://www.suicidology.org/associati...S_handbook.pdf

http://www.survivorsofsuicide.com/understanding.shtml

http://www.afsp.org/index.cfm?fuseac...84379C813F8D93

Many strength and love sent your way mama.
I have felt the pain of suicide through my friend and I grew up in her home. There house was my 2nd home growing up.

As my friend says, "I just take one breath at a time."

Ahh, the holidays. It's so automatic when you make your mental shopping list that your siblings are all included. It wasn't until I started to actually go into the stores that I remembered I didn't need to shop for my brother. I sat in my car and sobbed for half an hour. I've never dealt with this kind of grief. It hurts so much when it does a sneak attack like that. I've lost family members over the years but never so young, so unexpected, tragic.
I had a visit from my brother's ex-wife earlier in the month. She accidentally let me see a picture of the open casket at his funeral at the Naval base in Louisiana. It was horrible. My brother the corpse. It burned into my brain. Why did they do that to him? Put him on display like that? I can't think of a better word than horrible. Thankfully she said she made them close it before the actual event started. Even though they were divorced they were still very close and the Navy is treating her like a widow because they were fairly recently divorced and he didn't have a new wife or even a steady girlfriend.
I came here to read the thread about Mighty-Mama and instead got sucked back into my own thread. Thanks for giving me a place to talk.
