On November 3, I posted “Cherish One Another”. It was inspired by my friends’ lovely wedding reception.
Last night I learned that one of the couple had committed suicide. Evidently, this had been planned for a long time.
I feel guilty. I feel sad. I feel overwhelmed. I feel confused.
Yet, I know that my feelings are nothing compared to the family’s grief, confusion and despair.
My job now is to support the family as they begin to deal with this tragedy.
In 2015, my older brother died suddenly. Then, a few weeks later my best friend died. I was hoping that the deaths and sadness would be over for awhile… at least for 2016.
Even more reason to cherish one another.
