sorry to hear your son is in rehab, but maybe it's for the best.

Our spouses didn't care about who they left behind they were "just dying to be free". I have been on the chat room too, however, their loss is different from ours.  Seems those that are on there have been for a while and they seem to know each other.  I also briefly went to the Facebook page, but found it to be difficult as they are pretty blunt.  I also went to Survivors of Suicide in my community through the hospital.  I only went twice.  Most were parents who loss their teen age children to suicide and here I am stating my husband was 78 and married 41 years.  I felt guilty that I had all those years together.  When I went home I saw all their faces and felt their loss to lose their children at that early age let alone by their own hand.  We will never lose the stigma of how the loss occurred but we have to "live" on and I intend to do that for as long as God let's me. We are only left with "why"? Again, blessing to you and your son and going forward in 2018.

You two look like such a happy couple. So young. I know there is no way to know.  I was warned he told me but I didn't believe it.  That was not him.  Guess we don't realize what going on in others lives when ours are so good.  You could not  possibly imagine this would happen, I didn't.  Married 41 years.  Should not have ended this way.  We all need GRACE, we will never forget what happened nor should we ever forgot our loved ones who left us so devasted and so many questions.  I don't know about you but I am ashamed to tell anyone how he passed. I just say "suddenly"
