    Nina, thank you for what you said...and the manner in which you said it.

    Eduardo...never mind. Nina's already said it.

    I am so saddened to hear this. I haven't been here for a while due to a deep depression, and then I come back to find this news about Puternut. We had some nice conversations. I know he was going through a very difficult time due to his estrangement from his family, especially his daughters. I had wished him only the best with his move to Maui.

    A person wonders what more they might have done to help prevent it. What can you do to keep it from happening again? You feel so inadequate in the face of such pain.

    You wonder what you can do to prevent it from happening to yourself, the next time the long shadow dims the world and the lucid thoughts dance like light beams just out of your mental reach, with only irrational nonsensical ideas close enough to cling to.

    Aeternum vale Puternut.

    How horrible! Missed this thread...

    Absolutely terrible! Poor fellow. I wished I could have helped. I remember his threads quite well.

    It makes one wonder how many have done themselves in that we don't know about.

    Puternut was a good guy. I had the pleasure of meeting him at at least one apostafest.

    With the closing of JWD, I've been thinking about Puternut lately.

    Thanks for the bump.

    Hi Black Sheep! I was just reading through this thread last night, as well as the other one called "Sad news from Maui" which also discussed Puternut's (Ari) suicide. Hard to believe it has been over 6 years.

    Who knows, perhaps Puternut and Oompa have just met on the other side!
