Heartbroken for my family

My aunt called me yesterday as I was pulling into our subdivision. My 18 year old cousin (the oldest of 2) was found dead in his apartment from apparent suicide. He had just graduated high school and moved into his 1st apartment last month. I'm still in complete disbelief that he's gone :( I used to babysit him and his brother all the time when they were little. I'm sitting here at work trying to keep it together and waiting to find out when everything will be so I can figure out when I'm leaving to make the 20+ hour drive home. I didn't think that DS and I would be able to go since money has been tight. DH brought up making the drive since it'd be about $700 cheaper than flying. I talked to my brother about going with so we can take turns driving so at least I'll have company and help with DS.

Oh no! I'm so sorry for you and your family! Praying for you all.

Do remember to take the time you need for yourself to process and deal with this. Don't neglect your feelings.

I'm so sorry.  I can't imagine the pain your family is going through.  My prayers are with you.

Thanks ladies. I was a complete wreck most of last night and got very little sleep. Pretty sure I spent about 5 minutes bawling in my car before I had to try to pull myself together enough to get Jackson. It was a failed attempt but I did try. I'm worried about how Jackson will be during the funeral since this will be his first experience. I know that if he gets to upset I'll take him out but I guess we'll see.

This is awful news. I am so sorry. Depression can be a horrible, unfair disease and I feel sympathy for your family.

My thoughts are with you and your family. *hugs*
