    My sister-in-law called me this afternoon and told me some very bad news. A man that we have known for years shot himself in the head and died over a dispute with his girlfriend. At this time, that is all that I am aware of and the story may be added too or changed as information comes in. All I know is that a mother and father are facing their worst nightmare and a brother...has lost a brother. I cant imagine how this mothers day will be forever changed to his Mom now. Please pray for this family as well as friends. He was an organ donor so some good will come out of this.
    My heart is aching trying to reason with his decision to something so aweful as to take his own life. This was a man that had everything going for him, or so it seemed. He was an EMT and one that had been there in my trying times with my family as well as in church beside me. The more I think about it, the more I see that its starting to tear at me. I'll leave it alone and please ask that you all just pray, please.

    Thoughts and prayers are going up from Missouri. I'm sorry for your loss, Reb. I can never understand the senseless act of suicide. Nothing is worth that. May God bless you, the family, and friends.

    amy, hun, i am so sorry to have heard of this tragedy. we never really know someone elses pain til we witness it ourselves. appearances can be so deciving sometimes. it is awful that he was so young and had such a good start in life only to cut it so short. if i were close enough, i would wrap my arms around ya and lend ya a shoulder to cry on but im not there and able to do that right now. you have my phone# tho i am willing to listen anytime you need me all you have to do is call or pm me if im online that you need to get ahold of me. rest assured our prayers are with you and his family and friends adn anyone else who is affected by this. wish i could do more cause my heart aches for you and his loved ones right now sis. our prayers are goin up as we speak. luv ya sis.

    Little Sis,
    It's with a heavy heart that I read this. When our friends hurt, we hurt.
    I'm praying that GOD will grant you the peace in your heart so you can deal with this and go on. I'm praying that the family of this man do not focus on this tragedy but remember the good times they had with him.
    May GOD bless all concerned and remember, Amy,
    Our GOD is an AWESOME GOD!!!

    Hey Amy... I was also saddened to hear this news. I'll be praying for strength and peace of mind for his family, friends, and anyone close to the situation. I can see that you've definitely been affected by his death, and if you need me I'm here. Some things we just have to accept, but may never be able to understand them. Easier said than done, however. Call if you want to talk sis, I love you :smile2:.
