  •  Thanks boz. (12+ / 0-)

    I've come to understand that it was his choice, he just wasn't mature enough (just turned 20) to realize what it would do to his family.  My father had passed away at a ripe old age less than a month prior.  In a way, I think he thought we would move on and get over it as easily.  It wasn't easy burying my dad, but he did live a long and happy life, so there was a huge difference in the grieving process.

    •  I think violent deaths are more difficult (2+ / 0-)

      My dad passed away in a fire recently and I hadn't been close to him in years.  While there was a reason for that, I still feel terrible about what happened.  Having unfortunately seen several people I am close to dying too early, I can say that the violent deaths are the hardest.  It is really tough to lose a child, but you have a double amount of suffering.  I don't really have much to add here but you have my sincere sympathy and as much understanding as possible.
