I recieved some news this morning that has left me with both a sad heart and a knot in my stomach. Every parents nightmare was realized yesterday for some dear friends that I worked with until July. They got a call that their oldest child had taken his own life. The news leaves me wondering what could've been so bad in this young persons life that he felt he had to take his own life. These are good, caring and devoted parents who gave their children what they could during their childhood and still to this day do what they can to help them. Most of them being grown enough to be out of the parent's house and living on their own. My heart aches for this family who now have to deal with sadness so close to the holidays when they should be celebrating the season. My heart goes out to them as they try to get on with their lives. They will forever be in my thoughts and in my heart.
