    There are moments when time stands still, moments when the earth seems to stop revolving on its' axis, when the sun disappears from the sky, the stars are extinguished and the moon drops into the abyss of a far off universe; times when the air we breath ceases to exist as we hold our breath, waiting, just waiting. There are moments frozen in time and burned into the personal history of our lives.

    But we live with courage and we survive, changed forever but going forward for those who cannot,,,,,maybe not now but someday

    We lost our son last night. He took his own life.
    The bitter taste of grief is causing the shadows to cast longer, she is a harsh mistress,
    Man first found comfort and safety in those that surrounded him, his friends, family, and alliances: then he discovered fire.
    God Bless

    No amount of words could ever describe the full detail of loss and grief left behind by those we hold dear when they pass on. The only thing we can do as brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers is to be there for those who are in pain or may be without hope. Some say that time will heal all wounds, but sometimes that is just not true. It gets easier with time, but the scars will forever remind us of the fact that this life is terribly temporary.

    I am so sorry, Sea.

    I'm sorry, Sea. I've lost friends, but never a son. I can only imagine your pain. My thoughts go with you.

    I am sorry to hear of your loss Sea. Life is fraught with dangers and difficulties, and those who where born with a tender, loving spirit are often those who struggle the hardest with the harsh realities of this life. I will pray for peace and healing for you and your family! Be blessed that you had him and held him for those years that he was with you!

    As one that has buried a son, I understand. Understanding helps not at all. Condolences, Seacowboys, may you and yours heal; it will come in time. Memory will hold him close forever.

    God bless you and your family as you work through these times of heartbreak. sadness and recovery, at the loss of your son. Though one may dwell upon the reason.... one should focus on the fond memories... for there is no good reason. Remember him with a smile.... as he is sitting beside the throne tonight...... Our condolences to you and yours!!!

    Sea, I understand the pain. Lost my daughter when she was 4. I wish I had or ever heard some words to somehow make it a bit better. Just know that others understand, know that our eyes tear for you and that you will be in my prayers.

    I want to thank my many friends and acquaintances for the condolences. I found a few moments for my personal grief last night, but I am the one that holds our family together and cannot spent but a few maudlin moments for myself. I cannot begin to imagine the pain my wife is feeling, having lost her baby. I am angry that someone would give up such a precious gift as life in the pique of a moment.

    Yes, it's tough to fully comprehend, even for me after nearly 30 years having lost my own brother to suicide. I was just a small kid then, but I remember the effect it had on my pops and the family. The tough thing to come to terms with is that suicide is a terribly selfish act. Keep on being the anchor for the family.

    I know that anger all too well. It will consume you, if you let it, as it nearly consumed me. I lost a best friend to a silly girl and a bullet.
    The loss will always be there, but I can tell you the anger fades. Anything that hot must cool or it will kill you as well.

    I'm at a loss for words and have little personal experience from which others here might benefit, but given the situation, I can't just sit here and not offer any condolences.

    Sea, it's obvious even to me that you have a lot of people here that you can lean on, and rightfully so. I hope that the monkey tree is able to bring peace to you, as I'm sure you are doing for your family.
