Dear John sorry to hear about the loss of your son Brandon. It's not about being smarter, but knowing where to look for the answers to your questions. Many have found comfort in God's Word the Bible. The Bible really teaches that all who die are not suffering. (Ecclesiastes chapter 9 verses 5 and 10) The Bible compares death to a deep sleep. Just like when we are asleep, we are unware of anything. Anyone who has died is in God's memory. (John chapter 5 veres 28 and 29) I hope this helps.

My biggest question to GOD is wether or not my son Brandon is OK, if he's been allowed into heaven after committing suicide in May 2008. Being raised a Catholic during my youth, we were taught that suicide is a mortal sin and those who end their life in such a manner, are destand to Purgatude(sic) until the end of time. You have to understand I was six when I was taught these teachings so I've probally mis-intrepted the majority of those teaching, if not misunderstood same. Can someone smarter than me explain GOD's true explanations for suicide?
