I went to court with them and as soon as we got out, I called my elder son to let him know how it came out and he sounded so depressed. He said that it was just turning out to be a horrible day all the way around. When he showed up for work that morning they were told the company was downsizing and either people were going to be laid off or else everyone's hours were going to be cut, neither option of which he can afford. Just before I called him, his best friend (since first grade) called him to tell him he'd just gotten laid off and had no prospects. This friend and his wife just bought a house last year, had a baby in November, and the wife quit work and just started back to school. They don't know what they're going to do. It was just a bad day all day. Then the final blow fell that evening when my elder son again got a call. His other best friend (again since first grade) had shot himself in the head. Apparently he and his wife had been seperated for the last two months and she served him with divorce papers Thursday. He was only 30 years old and left two year old and a seven year old sons. My elder son is now as big a basket case as my younger son and D-I-L are. He's been asked to be a pall bearer for the funeral this weekend and says he has no idea how he's going to do it. He and Matt have been best friends for the last 24 years. His parents were also our neighbors for that long. That kid lived at my house growing up. I loved him as much as my own sons and just can't believe he would do something like this. He and his dad were both volunteer firemen, and of course he spent his entire life in the same small town, so everyone knew and loved the family. The whole community is just in shock. Between his youner brother's problems with his in-laws, his problems at his own job, his best friend losing his job, and now his other best friend committing suicide all in the same day, my elder son is not coping well. To top matters off my younger son's son turns four tomorrow and we have a birthday party to go to in the morning before the funeral. There's too many people coming from out of town to cancel it, so we have to act happy for a couple of hours, before going to a funeral.
Oh Vanessa

I'm not sure what to say, except "I'm sorry." Adrian and I have you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

Thanks guys! Maybe I shouldn't have posted it here. I didn't mean to bring anyone down, but the day I posted about Matt killing himself, I was just so upset and in such shock. I still find it hard to believe he did it. That has to be the hardest funeral I've ever been to. He has a twin sister and another sister that two years older than him, but he was the only boy and was always the golden son, if you know what I mean. His poor family are just taking it so hard, of course. A mother should not have to bury her 30 y/o son and a two year old and a seven year old should not have to grow up knowing their dad killed himself over their mother. My elder son was a pall bearer and is having such a hard time dealing with it. He just keeps saying that he saw Matt last weekend and can't understand why he just didn't call him, so he could help him. Thanks again for your prayers and good thoughts!

Aubriee -

You don't have to apologize for posting here. You are going through an awful time. This forum is a wonderful place to reach out for support.

If you I can do anything or if you just need to talk, let me know. PM me and I'll send you my phone number.

You and your family will continue to be in my prayers

Weather not too bad here in the UK - had the worst snowfall for over 20 years the other week (i.e. hardly any but the media built it up!) - not too long to wait now everyone
