@sillysillybee:  I am sorry for your loss. My baby brother committed suicide a few months ago and it’s heartbreaking, but he did not value life the way most people do. He was drinking heavily and I believe that is a cause in what made him do what he did..but he left no note so I will never know. Nothing you could have done would change what your uncle chose to do. In time you’ll understand that. Again, I’m so sorry. Feel free to pm me if you ever want to talk.

My heart goes out to you.

I lost my own brother to suicide, and I understand the complexity of emotions that go along with such a loss. The one thing I can say is that playing the ‘what if’ game is never going to help with healing, and to tell you that if he had known better, he would have done better. That is not your/ your parents etc burden. It was his choice, it sucks, but it was all him.

I send you the biggest internet hug ever.

I’m so sorry for your loss.  Addiction is a terrible disease for all involved. My little brother passed away a few months ago from a drug overdose (we initially thought it was intentional but have since figured out it was just an accident). Trying to go back and piece together the last weeks of his life was one of the hardest things my parents and I ever had to do.  I was the last one of my family to speak to him before he died. I hate all the “what if” thoughts but the reality is that his addiction was just more powerful than his will to overcome it. I know what you mean about it being oddly calming about seeing your loved one for one last time at the funeral home. I felt the same way about seeing my brother. 

Again, im so sorry for your loss. Your family is in my prayers.

What a devastatingly sad and tragic story.  I can’t imagine how painful this is for you and your family.  I’m so very sorry for the loss of your uncle.  You are in my thoughts.

I am so sorry for your loss! What a tragedy.

Also, I mean well when I say this and I speak from experience: please be careful about sharing so much detailed info on the web. I could easily identify you. You gave us locations and lots of details.

I am so sorry for what you are going through. Its good that he was found and your family is not suffering with him missing and not having closure but it is still so very sad for all if you.

@sillysillybee:  Oh gosh, I’m so sorry to hear all of this. I was following your story. If you need anyone to talk to, PM me. My uncle killed himself in 2012 in front of my father – depression and addiction, followed by my brother and then my cousin (that uncle’s son) both ODing. It’s been a rough time for us and I can’t imagine having gone through such a terrible time without my family close by.
