Cousin commited suicide..could use some prayers guys

  1. Mods...feel free to move, i'm having trouble navigating site with parents computer...

    Just found out my cousin, jumped off a bridge overlooking the major expressway here. As you could imagine, this forced the closure of the entire expressway for hours. His name was Ken. Had a TBI, and struggled with depression, as do I, which was a shared hurt. His father, who's across the country, refuses to come claim the body. Some people still refuse to care, even after death, I guess.

    RIP, dear Ken. I know the pain is gone now, my friend.

    I'm so sorry Rehab, just a few weeks ago, my cousin was beaten by her boyfriend, and then he left the house, the next morning he went back and she was dead. It seems people who you think will always be there are gone one day, and you just wish you could have helped or stopped it somehow. But we can't. Just know I will be praying for you and your family. Hugs to you across the miles. Let us know how you are doing, and know we are all here for you.:heartbeat

    I am so sorry for your loss. Please take care of yourself, especially w/ your depression issues. My fiance completed suicide over 18 years ago. I've been through some of the emotions and thoughts you are processing. Feel free to PM if you want, otherwise know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Will pray for you. Psalms 147:3 "He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds."

    I am so sorry. You and the rest of his family and friends are in my prayers, even Ken's father. My father killed himself when I was a child and the pain and unanswerable questions last for years - even a lifetime, sometimes.
