If you or anyone you know is dealing with depression or thoughts of suicide, this is important. Roberta has been there, she is not a medical or mental health professional, simply a person who had dealt with the realities of these issues.

I recently posted this link on one of my other blogs. On Tuesday, 19 June 2018 I received a very brief email from my spouse’s double cousin that one of the siblings committed suicide on Father’s Day. He was only 58 years old, a former United States Marine, husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, friend. Everyone was shocked, no one was expecting anything like that.

Suicide is a racking and deeply painful thing for a family to go through. Please, if you even remotely suspect someone might harm themselves or end their own lives, tell another family member or friend, talk to the person, let them know you care. I realize that some people will give no indication at all but many do. I can only hope that maybe one person might be helped by this.
