The husband of a family friend killed himself. Cut his throat in the dugout of his oldest son's baseball field. Left behind a wife and two young kids. The real stinger is that the last three calls on his cellphone were to 611. He made the cut and immediately realized he'd fucked up then mis-dialed 911 in his panic. It wouldn't have made any difference had he dialed the correct number. That's what virtually every legit suicide attempt survivor says, the last thing they can remember is thinking "I don't want to die."My cousin hanged himself off a ceiling fan with a rope because of a domestic dispute. Said a few harsh words to the wife at the time right before he did it.
I wish he had made another choice, the guy was the best man at my wedding and we were always pretty tight...
The aftermath he left behind was devastating. Kerri carried that guilt for years, the two kids he left struggle with it, and his Dad never got over it. I'm pretty sure it contributed to his Dad's heart attack.
Messed up all the way around.
However, if he had taken his wife along with him, I'm not certain it would be as easy to forgive. It's just a tough situation for anyone to go through.
