Hi Nick,
That was beautifully said. That has even encouraged me. Thank you.
Thomas, very sad news indeed. It's one thing having a family member die through illness, but it's another story when it comes to suicide. I feel sorry for your whole family, especially your sister. I will be praying for you all.
All my best,
Damien.

Thomas,
I'm really sorry to hear of the death in your family.
You and your family are in my prayers, and, to all who read this who
are in a dark place in your life right now, Find a friend or family
member who cares. It feels great to talk about it, and even better to
have someone to help you to resolve whatever issues you're trying to
deal with. My point is that you can come out of your shell, and make
peace with those you care about, and live a great life. Don't think
that there's no way out, or that you are worth nothing, or that taking
your own life would help you or the people you know. That's complete
crap. You can work through it, no matter how hopeless you think your
situation is. So take those first stepps. Taking your own life is not
the way to go, and I'm terebly sorry that Thomas's sister felt that
taking her own life was the only way out.
In the words of Aaron Lewis "Falling is easy, it's getting back up
that becomes the problem. And if you believe you can find a way out,
then you've solved your problem."
Never give up. Find someone to talk to and work with, and pull
yourself back up. It's worth it, I promise.
And Thomas, I'm so sorry about your stepsister. Again, you and your
family are in my prayers.

Let me say that I fully agree with every word you have said.

A loved one I am extremely close to lost her mother this past Tuesday and
those things you said hit home for her and the family.

My thoughts and prayers go to you and the entire family and those who were
affected by this tragedy.

May God bless each and every one on the list.

Dear list,

I regret to inform you that there has been a very very tragic death in
my family this weekend. Last night my mom called me and told me that
my oldest step sister died under extremely tragic circomstances. At
this point in time the police are ruling it out is a suicide. To say
that this comes as a shocking suprise for the family and is very sad
is an understatement.

Although, my step sister and I were never close I still feel sad and
extremely disappointed in how she chose to end her life. I feel
extremely sorry for my neace who will be cellibrating this and every
other Christmas without her mother. I also feel deeply sorry for my
step father who lost a daughter, and my surviving step sisters who
lost one of their sisters. For them Christmas will never ever be the
same. For those of you who have faith in a religious background please
pray for them in this time of morning and grief. Also pray for my step
sister that perhaps she can find happiness in death that she never
could in this life time. Moreover, never forget to tell your closest
ffriends, family, and other loved ones that you love them. Remember
that there is nothing more precious than life, and that no matter how
bad life gets at times that taking your own life without a good cause
is the greatest tragity of all.

Finally, I wish to leave you with something that I learned from this
experience. Remember to forgive those who have wronged you, and try to
make, if possible, peace with everyone that you can. Especially, those
who are your family and friends. Nothing is more tragic than what
happened in my sisters' case.

I'm not going to get into details and specifics, but one thing I can
say is that my oldest sister was troubled. In her death she left
behind a lot of unsettled arguments with my step father, my younger
step sisters, her grandparents, and things were said in the heat of
the moment to each other that can never be taken back or settled in
this life time. My youngest step sister, for example, vowed never to
see my oldest step sister again in this life time, and now, of course,
she never will. My youngest step sister has to live with the guilt of
allowing her personal feelings get in the way of making peace with her
sister when she could have. Moreover, she now realises she wasn't
there for her sister when she went over the emotional brink and took
her own life when she needed her family, her loved ones,  more than
ever.

So the lesson I want to pass on to each and every single one of you is
don't let your anger, your personal differences, etc go so far that
you have to live each and every day of your life regretting the things
you have said and done. Make your peace while you have time, and tell
those you love that you love them. Let them know you care regardless
of how angry you might be at them. You will never know when tomorrow
is simply too late to say, "I'm sorry. I love you."
