    I am sorry lonelysheep for your great loss. Suicide is a selfish act as they say as it leaves so many w/broken hearts.

    I was at that point once when I came out of the JW religion. I got help though and I'm so happy I did. I would've missed out on so much happiness. But a person in a deep depression only thinks that death is better than living. They are not thinking rationally. It's sad.

    Peace to you and a big hug,

    Hugs to you and those affected by this tragedy. Especially her dear daughter. I fight with depression and have come closer to suicide than I care to think about now. Like you (if I understand your post) I was helped to see the reality of it. A brother in my hall was a window washer (a JW who is a window washer????) and he jumped off a building one afternoon. Nobody has a clue as far as I know. Anyway, seeing his wife and son deal with it showed me what my actions would do to my wife and kids. Please let this experience, as bad as it is, always be a reminder to you that you are indeed loved and that life is something to be cherished no matter what we are going through at the moment.

    I know you don't know me but if you need to talk, PM me or PM me for my phone number.

    (Hugs) Lonelysheep.

    Losing someone to death is hard enough but where the person has brought about their own its even harder. Dawn and I earlier learned that a similar aged woman in her old congregation had done the same.

    She was disfellowshipped and of course nobody could speak to her; so in her hour of need she had nobody...its sickening and I feel for you.

    Sorry for your loss.

    My heart goes out to her family, daughter and you. How devastating. I am sorry. I hate that anyone can be so sad and in despair.

    No one should ever be that unhappy.

    ((((LonelySheep))). Really sorry to hear this. Take care of yourself.

    So sorry to hear that (((((((((((((lonelysheep)))))))))))))))))

    Beyond the hurt and anger you may find, in time, that one dark yet essential aspect of love (not indifference) is to let our friends, parents, or even children, go when they really want or need to.
