Found out yesterday that one of our regular customers killed himself last Thursday. Apparently he hanged himself. Find myself thinking about it often. He was a nice man, friendly and always seemed chipper though he had lost his mother just before the holidays. He had been her caretaker. Apparently there were issues with his family too. I can't help feeling he must have been in a terrible place. I can't help thinking about the last time I saw him and perhaps I should have chatted a little more.
A few years ago my middle son was having problems in school. I was really worried then that he would hurt himself or someone else. We got through it with the help of a wonderful counsellor. We were going to see him once, sometimes twice a week for years and finally he seems to be doing better.I guess the whole thing is bringing up memories of the past.
D must have been in terrible pain. I hope he found the peace he was looking for.
