Further South than I wanna be.
I just received a call from a friend and learned that her BIL committed suicide this morning by shooting himself. She didn't know any details yet but was quite upset. Please keep her sister and family in your thoughts and prayers.

Prayers coming from Central GA. We just went through this with my sister-in-law's mother last week. The memorial service was Friday. Be there for your friend. They will need your support.

Thank you everybody. I attended the funeral yesterday. He was 40 years old, very involved in the community and well loved as was evident from the hundreds that attended his funeral. He was into Robotics and started a club at the HS. All of the club members were there. It was really very sad.

What is so hard for everyone is that he showed no outward signs of depression or wanting to die.

Unexpected deaths are always the most difficult to cope with and understand. Especially when it's something as tragic as taking your own life.
It's no consolation but it does help to remind all of us that you never know when your time will end or anyone elses. So, when you think you're in such a hurry...take the extra second to remind someone that you love them and care for them.

Continued prayers for your friend...

Prayers from me, too, KC. You were in one of my dreams last week (while on vacation, no less). Now I know why. I'm so sorry for your loss, and for that of your friend.
