    My middle brother called me a couple of hours ago. Our youngest brother, Josh, who was 38, was found by his friends in his apartment. He hung himself. I confirmed it with local law enforcement in his town.

    Shouldn't I be crying? Not sure how to process.

    Not even sure why I feel the need to post this.

    Really sorry Rich. Do you have family or friends nearby?
  • Divergent
    Nooooo! That's so sad! Was he df'ed / shunned? I don't know what it feels like to lose a sibling (yet), but my heart goes out to you & your family!

    WOW, thats horrible! I am so sorry for your loss, man. It must be almost immpossible to process right now. You are probably going to be going through a shit ton of emotions, and it may be very hard to "navigate" them, so if ya need to talk, and or vent, or "sort" things out, for what its worth, i am sure everyone here will be happy to talk with ya. Again, sorry for this bad news that you received, hang in there.

    Rich, I'm so sad for what your family is facing and whatever hurt him so much to have resorted to that act. Take your time. Know that we care about you, ok?
