    • I lost my son to suicide nearly four years ago. He's the most precious thing I've ever lost. I still haven't gotten over it. I doubt I ever will. I spoke to him the night before, but he didn't give any indication of what he was planning to do. He was cheerful and we talked about what he'd been doing and he asked what I'd been doing, then rang off with his usual "Bye, Ma!" I didn't know he was saying good-by forever. The next day he made arrangements with a co-worker to take care of his dog "over the weekend." Sasha went to the beach for several months after he died, waiting for him to come back and get her. He used to walk with her on the beach every evening after work.

    Oh dear, Sandra I am so sorry to hear that. I don't know what to say, never having being a parent I can never even imagine what it feels like. I am sorry to read about this. And how loving of your dog Sasha that she still missed him for so long, going back to the same place everyday as it was when she had him.

    I'm sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner. I don't always check for comments, and I'm just realizing that I'm missing people like you who were thoughtful enough to leave a comment. I appreciate your kind words of condolence.
