Nothing I can say will help but just know I am very sorry for your family's loss. Dang!

Sorry for your loss.


�Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves. � � Winston Churchill

A loss like that will lay heavy on your soul. I know it did on mine. Try to take comfort in the good and happy thoughts you do have of your brother. Take care and hold the ones you do have close.

I feel your pain my friend. Have been through this with my family and far too many friends and their families. NONE of us understand, nor will we ever understand the true feeling of what its like to NEVER wake up to the hope and promise of a new day and what the future has in store for us. God bless their souls, as their journey is a short an painful path.


Life is short, tomorrow is promised to none of us. Make the best of every day you have

Nothing I can say to make things better. Keep your chin up Brother. These fella's on here are mostly really good guys. So if you need to talk to any of us, just give me or any of the others a holler. Peace be with you.

I have dealt with similar situations of having immediate family members taking their own lives .It hurts so bad you often don't know what to do All you can do is take one day at a time and try to remember all the good times that you had .Mental illness is often made fun of or pushed under the rug .It is real and can be helped .But as you said most of the time we don't know what to do

I'm the youngest of six boys. I have a brother eleven months older than me who has been struggling with schizophrenia for almost forty years. It takes a huge toll on the entire family. The question I've asked myself the most over the years is why him and not me. There are no good answers.
