Big hugs little brother. What you said wasn't stupid - you were just in a bad patch anyway. These things happen. The important thing is to learn from the experience, integrate it in a positive way, and move on. That is how we learn.

Your thread on prosecution wasn't stupid either, and I can't see any reason why you should think it had anything to do with what happened to Scott. No one here is at fault. Please do believe that.

Take care,

So very sad to hear of Scott's suicide. Prayers will go up for his wife and children.

"Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles so that we may be able to comfort those experiencing any trouble with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God." (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)

(((((Scott))))) - Rest well - you will be hurt no more...

My prayers and sympathies go out to his family

I honestly did'nt get a chance to know scott very well - but it angers me greatly when the perps win and take another away from us...

The Leaders of governments all over this world need to wake up and start realizing that this is no 'little problem' - scott's leaving this life has effected far more than just 1 person...

I feel sadness for Scott. I feel heartbreak and despair for his family...I know what it is like to lose a loved one to suicide. I feel guilt and shame over this man's decision to end his life, not that I would have been able to sway him one way or another.

I feel guilt because I let my fears prohibit me from ever responding to his posts or even reading most of them. Things happened here so many months ago, until I feel stupid continuing to be paranoid of others. It makes no sense to be afraid of the 'possibility' of being hurt, especially when there is the very real possibility I could say or do something to help a fellow brother on this site that is hurting or in pain. We are all brothers in this, together. Maybe no one else is as paranoid as I am, but I would urge each of you to step out of your own shadow of fear, and try to help each other so that this tragedy does not repeat itself.

I lost a friend at Christmas to suicide, also with 2 young children. His family is still trying to come to grips with the loss. Many of you know that I lost my own son to suicide in May to suicide. I agree totally with Mikey: "Dammit this is happening too often."

Please read Lloydy's post regarding suicide. Please talk yourself into waiting at least 24 hours before doing anything to harm yourself. Please get help if you feel this is your only option left in life. IT ISN'T! There is ALWAYS a tomorrow. There are people to talk to.

Remember as Mikey told us, "when a life is taken, the creeps win and I cannot abide by that." None of us can abide by that!

Know that Scott is no longer in pain. He is with God. At the same time know that his family is in extreme pain. My thoughts and prayers are with them.

I've copied Jaspers & Roadrunners posts and will start a new topic where we can discuss the problems associated with suicide, and leave this topic free.

Guys, please stop posting in this thread, Scott's wife is a member here, and she will be reading this stuff.

Please be careful, and appreciate her grief,

I'll hold Scott and his family in the light.

(its a quaker saying, its the same as holding them in my thoughts and prayers)

Every corner, every city
There's a place where life's a little easy
Little Hennessy, laid back and cool
Every hour, cause it's all good
Leave all the stress from the world outside
Every wrong done will be alright
Nothin but peace, love
And street passion, every ghetto needs a thug mansion

May God take care of Scott's family, and may He welcome him home to the peace he deserves.

I didn't know him very well, but having cared for and lost two people here who are dear to me, one through suicide, well, this still hits hard.

Sometimes I wish the pain could be visited on those who caused these things in us one hundredfold. But they wouldn't care. They wouldn't understand.

I also wish, something I have to remind myself when the self-destructive thoughts hit me, that when someone comes close to doing this, no matter how much it may hurt at the time, that they know it will pass. Pain always passes. Death is forever. And even when you try to make it clear to your loved ones that they weren't the reasons you took the way out, they will ALWAYS blame themselves. They will always feel that hurt. That's something I will try NEVER to leave those who love me as a last memory.

I hope people learn from this sort of thing.

God, Scott, I'm sorry, my brother. I'm praying for you and your family. I know you've found your peace.

Peace and love,
