Hello Tom, my deepest condolences to you and your family at this very
difficult time.  There is no good way to lose someone for sure, but this way
is perhaps one of the worst and most pointless to those of you who are left.
My family has had a difficult loss this last year as well although not of
the same kind, my sister in law was killed by a drunk driver and my brother
was seriously injured as well.  These things never seem to make any sense,
and I agree wholeheartedly with all that you said in your message.

Best regards and take care.

Tom

Subject: [Audyssey] Some Extremely Sad News


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."
