On July 7th 2010 we lost our youngest child to suicide. He had just turned 20 on June 25th. I will remember that day for the rest of my life. Every detail. Does the pain ever stop? My son was the strongest person I knew. I never thought he would do this to himself. He loved his family very much and he said this in his note but he also loved someone else more and that person would not return those feelings fully. People say in time we will start healing but right now I cant see that far in the future because the pain of loss is so very fresh. I think about my son everyday, every minute of the day sometimes. I still cant believe he is gone and that I will never see his smile or hear his voice again. I love you Luke.

Thats a truly sad story. I'm sorry and feel your pain. I feel that your note that you recieved from him wasn't trying to say that you didn't love him enough.. i think he just didn't feel the love..and the other person who he was writing about im sure loved him very much, returned the same amount of love, if not more. In these kinds of situations there is no one to blame. I lost my sister to suicide in almost identical situation and I've learned that people look for someone to blame. Its part of a grieving process. I really hope that you someday realize its nobody's fault. my prayers are with you and your family.
