oh Corey. How heart breaking. I am so sorry for your loss, for your friend's family who must have just as many questions as you do, and mostly sorry for your friend's sadness that led him to this. Sending you much love.

I am so sorry for your loss. It is so hard for family and friends when someone they care for completes suicide. As a volunteer police chaplain, I am often called to comfort loved ones after such tragedies. It is just so hard for everyone and I often wish that the person could see how much sorrow and heartache it can cause others.

Very sad to hear about your neighbor. It takes a trained professional to see the undercurrent, don't blame yourself for not seeing it. Actually, I heard of this once before and it was explained to me that right before, the person seems happy and normal since they have already decided and are reconciled to it. Oh so sad for family and friends. Take care.

Such a tragic disease. With tears in my eyes, Kathie.

I’m very sorry that you got that tragic news and I’m sorry for the Los of your neighbor. I’m sure that he knew what a caring person you are and that you blessed him in ways you never expected. ❤️

Oh I’m so, so sorry. How heartbreaking. I’m sure you brought joy and light into his life.

Speechless. Oh so sorry for you and his family.

Thank you Rebecca.

So true, but I imagine at that point the person cannot see beyond their own darkness. He would never want to cause pain to someone. Thank you for your service as a police chaplain xxx

I have heard that too. Thank you for your notexx

Thank you Kathie.

I cannot imagine how his family feels. Thank you for your messagexx

thank you xx

yes, very much so xx

Corey, the first sentence of your above comment is so true. As a dear friend who is an insightful treating psychiatrist once told me, a person who resorts to suicide is in such intense pain that s/he cannot see beyond the overwhelming need to stop that pain. And often, no one else knows, even/especially close family. Sending my heartfelt condolences and prayers for peace to you and your family, and to Patrice's family.

I am so sorry Corey. The shock sends your reeling, of course. There was no way for you to know. I am certain that, despite his inner turmoil, your caring and joyful interactions were a source of happiness, if only briefly, in his life.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that. Our family has been touched with that sorrow. It's always a shock. Xx

Corey I am so very sorry to read this.
My love and prayers and deepest sympathy.
Love Jeanne

How do we ever know? I think you can take some comfort in knowing that those times you spoke to him from your window were most definitely happy times for him. Good moments. Connected moments.

Corey..my heart has felt that heavy tug and then the voice of the "what if's" and if only"
..and then this song always comes to me
"If somehow you could
pack up your sorrows
and give them all to me
You would lose them
I know how to use them
Give them all to me" by mimi and richard farina
Sending you a hug and holding your hand (the good one)
