How Do You Go On?

My Dad committed suicide 10 days before Christmas in 2006. I struggle everyday. None of us knew that he was having any issues at all. I'm 36, I have 3 children that adored their grandpa, he was 57. My oldest son is going to be a Freshman and my Dad wanted so much for my son to be a better athlete than him, my Dad played college football. Now my son is on the path to accomplish that and my Dad is not here to experience it with us. My Dad loved his family and could not stand being away and missing anything. I just don't understand how he could choose to leave us. My heart breaks everyday. I miss him so much!

I feel you pain and understand completely. My mother attempted suicide 2 times. I found her once and my brother the second time. She eventually made it through but died in a car accident April 28 of this year. I understand your feelings and know how difficult this is. I wish you all the best!

I am sorry for your loss.
