Unhappy Had a buddy commit suicide this morning.

All I have to say is if shit is going wrong call a buddy to talk too. Maybe one of us could of helped him not do what he did. He is also a wheeling buddy, I wheeled sat with him. He was a great guy, he will be missed by many

RIP Devon 3-8-10

I feel for you man. I know it's rough. Sometimes from the exterior you can't tell something is visibly wrong. You would hope they would have somebody close they could talk to, and express their feelings. Sometimes emotions get the best of somebody, and they weight of the emotions takes over. I agree.. I just wish people would lean on somebody in a time of need, realizing that they aren't the only one that has to carry the burden.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. If he has family, be there for them, I am sure that they need you. Remember that sometimes there is just nothing we can do and we have to move on and try to focus on the good times and fond memories. God Bless you and his family.

im sorry to hear about your loss man. i know how hard it can be when this happens. my cousin committed suicide back in august of 08, and it is still rough for the whole family. best thing to do is remember the good times, have some good fun, and honor his memory. try and celebrate his life, instead of focusing on his death, it really helped me.

That's sad, I'm sorry to hear that. It's too bad people who do that couldn't open up enough to a friend or family member enough to find out their problem is never worth committing suicide over.

Kind of like the scene in the original MASH movie where the song Suicide is Painless came from. The MASH dentist who wanted to commit suicide was fine after he figured things out. That was a great part of MASH by the way, it has a lot of truth to it.

Sorry to hear that man. You are very right it's best to talk to friends but many people don't do it and sometimes the sad thing happens.

**Off Topic** I haven't been here for a while but thank again..You know what I mean. Things are a lot better now.
