I was going to PM you the copy-and-pasted text, but it won't let you paste it (it comes out all funky). I will PM Father and let him know about this thread, and perhaps he has a text copy on his computer.

So sad.

I too have had a close relative take his life years ago.  The wounds it leaves do heal in time, but there is always a deep scar.

I can not imagine losing a son.
