Last week Joe and I lost a friend to suicide.  Our hearts are broken for her family.  She is gone too soon.

We were supposed to make Christmas cards together.  I don't know if I have it in me to make them without her.

We will miss you S. You were kind and thoughtful and smart as a whip.

I can't imagine how sad your family must be knowing they won't ever see you again.

I'm sorry that you felt so alone.  I'm sorry if I wasn't as  good of a friend as I could have been.

If you or someone you know is struggling with depression,  please get help.  You are not alone.

 Here is the number to the National Suicide Prevention Hotline:

No family should have to lose their loved one in this manner.

She will be greatly missed.

Wow, Michelle, I am so, so, sorry for your loss. And, thank you, for the reminder.

You are such a special lady.
