Sorry to be off topic ladies. I'm just trying to wrap my mind around something and I always feel so supported here.
My niece died today. She hung herself. She was only 16 and had absolutely everything going for her. It's so difficult to comprehend she's gone. She was so sweet and loved everyone.
Thanks for listening.

I am so sorry I did not see this until now. I cannot begin to imagine how difficult this is for you or your family to wrap your brain around. How devastating. There are times in life that things just don't seem to make any sense & this has to be one of them. I had a friend in HS that hung himself as well - we had dated, and then remained friends. To this day I think of his mom & sister often & say a prayer that they are doing well & I feel sad that he is not here with us. It is something that has always bothered me & that I have never understood - as I simply did not in any way see it coming, no one did. The reasons why anyone (especially teens) commit suicide can be complex & so hard to comprehend. I will certainly be keeping you & yours in my thoughts & prayers. I wish there something more I could do.
