My friend, whos has struggled with alcoholism and depression for years, jumped off a bridge and killed himself Tues. night.

Over the years I have watched him hit rock bottom, get sober and go back to school, relapse and try to commit suicide, get sober, relapse and almost die of kidney failure, get sober, now this. I am so thankful my husband and father have had the strength to deal with this disease and fight it every day. And I am so sad my friend felt that lost. I will miss him so much. He had the best heart and one wicked sense of humor.

Just maybe send some warm thoughts his parents way please. They are so devastated. Thanks.

    Suicide of a friend/ family member is one of the worst things someone can go through. I am really sorry.

    That is awful, I am so sorry for you and his family. Last summer Avatar and I did the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Out of the Darkness walk here in San Francisco, the stories that the survivors told just broke my heart. My thoughts are with you.

    Oh Pooky. I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't offer any words of wisdom, just thoughts and hopes that his loved ones can heal.
    Better everyone think your a fool, than to open your mouth and prove them right.

    I'm sorry, and I am sending warm thoughts to you and the parents.

    Alcoholism can be absolutely devastating. :( It sounds like your friend had enormous courage and spiritual strength. I hope he has found peace.
