SO sorry to hear of your loss, there is little to do or say in a time like this that is honestly comforting, but know that you have a lot of people wishing you and your family the best in this time of tragedy.

Just wanted to thank you all so very much for the kind words. It's hard right now. I wasn't aware that I had so many DC buddies. Thank you.

I just woke up. Didn't sleep well. Woke myself up crying in my sleep.
I don't know where to go from knowing to planning. Or how to approach his ex wife about making the arrangements. My mother forgot who I was for a minute yesterday. She snapped back into things and was trying so hard to calm me down. Feel like an idiot now. I'll get with my sister today. If he left a note, I don't know. Just know how the deed was done. It's breaking my heart that he had sunk so low, that's not his personality at all. It never was. He was always smiling willing to help you out if you needed it. A real go getter!

My hearts heavy. Especially when I think of the kids and what will happen to them?
Gotta fly. Can't talk about this without tearing up.

If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.

Saying prayers for you and all who knew and loved your brother. May God hold you all closely during this awful time.
No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

I am so sorry. I simply cannot imagine losing one of my sisters this way (I did lose a cousin to suicide). It breaks my heart. I'm thinking of you.

I know there is nothing any of us can say to make it better. Just know that we care.

Practice Random Acts of Kindness ( RAK ) Makes you feel great too
