Mom Confessions Mom Confessions
My husband just called to tell me one of his coworkers committed suicide this morning :( he had a baby and a teenager :(. Hubs told his boss when the guys parents come from Ohio to pick up tools and such to call him since they kind of know hubs from when he and the guy went to Ohio for training and they all ate dinner together. I feel so bad for his wife, I'm guessing she found him. I don't know her and never met her but I feel like I should do something, any suggestions? Flowers? A card?

Maybe I will have hubs talk to the other guys at work and see if they all want to sign a card then send it with flowers.

Quoting misskriss10:

I think flowers and a card would be a great idea. I think it's sweet that you want to send something. I'm sure it will mean a lot.

I would NOT send flowers. So many people are going to send flowers plus you never know if someone in the house has an allergy.

It's just so sad! Hubs told me this morning that they got an email that he died and he was worried it was suicide because he had been depressed.

Send her a little thinking of you note.because you dont know the whole story being overly in her face may be too much.remind her shes in your thoughts and if she needs to vent ur there.

That's a great idea. I couldn't imagine going through that and hopefully this might make her smile a little.

I would send flowers and a card letting her know y'all are thinking about her and if she needs anything to let you know. When my son died, that's what a lot of people did. Or fix a casserole to take to her.

does she even know you?

Quoting LCWAmommy:

Oh I don't want to go to her house and intrude but I just think I should send a card or flowers or something.

Quoting D.O.E.:

as much as you want to do something for her, i think if i was in her shoes i would just my mom and sisters and no one else

Then send flowers and a card. I think she would appreciate the thought.

Oh no that is so sad. I would honestly send her a card with your number and tell her if she needs anything to call. If you know where they live maybe bring over a meal or two for the kids. The gods know she will not want to be cooking. Maybe offer to baby sit so she can have some time yto proccess things. IDK ...very awesome that you want to do something.
