My brother committed suicide in '02 at 17 yrs old. I was 19. My uncle recently committed suicide in March. He was in his 40's, father and grandfather. Both deaths have really taken a toll on our family, especially my poor dad.

My uncle committed suicide in 01. I was ten. It was really hard on everyone still is. I might sound crazy but I believe he is still around and not at rest.

Yup. He shot himself.
And I saw a ton on the job. The worst was my last one. He hung himself and his daughter found him.

yes my sons best friend and he was only 18 years old. he had such a promising career in football. it was predicted he would go pro. won all kinds of state awards and then he got on drugs and blew his brains out and he was at home like that when my son went there. he was here everyday with us and it has been a great loss. he also dated my daughter and she still cant go to the graveyard.
