It was my mother and father who found him with a rope on his neck. note that my parents are already in their 80s. I live outside the country so I didn't see him like that. Needless to say about how devastating it is. My biggest worry is how the memory of his suicide would consume the emotional and mental health of my aging parents.


I have been on this site for so many years, but i never thought that the time will come for me to check out the suicide page. we never saw it coming. he didn't leave a note. but he fixed his things in a manner that shows he planned it. We are left with so many questions in our hearts, for which there is no answer.


I read from the suicide page that timely intervention to contain the disturbing grief plaguing my family is important. I am trying to arrange for my family to meet a family therapist. besides this, any suggestions, friends?
