Very sad
Started by: britboy (6752) Report abuse
A friend of mine attended a funeral of a sixteen year old boy yesterday, the desperation of committing suicide at that age, not leaving a note and hanging himself is sometimes beyond comprehension.
There were no signs of this ever happening that his parents had noticed.
I feel heart sorry for the lad and family left behind to come to terms with such a loss.

So sad.
I am usually of the opinion that those who do kill themselves don't really want to die, they just want whatever is bothering them to go away. It is so sad that they cannot find the words to tell others how they feel.
Something similar happened to the young son of a friend of mine. It happened a good few years ago and to this day they do not know why. Such a heavy burden for those left behind.

I could cry just reading these story's..the other week a young man aged 33
who worked at the same place as my youngest lad. rang in sick..then
no one knew where he'd got to until they saw him on CCTV jumping off the Tyne Bridge..think it was a couple of weeks before they found him..his work
mates were in bits..if only he'd spoken to someone re what was troubling
him..the same goes for all suicide victims...such a waste of young lives..
and years of heartache for parents and families...God love em all.
