    So yeah...My father in law shot himself in the chest this last week. Its just been a mess and I'm taking it much harder than convention would allow. I'm not really sure what to do with myself yet...We will be putting him to rest this morning at Bushnell National Cemetery. I'll be visiting my Grandfather's grave for the first time as well while I'm up there. I have no idea how I will react to that...

    I’m so sorry to hear of your loss... Suicide is terribly hard on everyone around the person who... left. This is a good time to talk to a counselor, priest, rabbi, trusted friend, ANYONE. I’ve lost people and right now is the hardest time, you don’t have to deal with this alone. Many of the places I’ve worked have had some kind of “employee assistance program” that if they can’t directly help you, they will refer you to someone who can. Heck, even your family doctor can do that... This kind of situation is really hard, and there’s NOTHING wrong with asking for help! Believe me, I’ve been there, on both sides of this issue...
    Good luck, and remember “time heals all wounds”, “all this will pass”, etc.

    Thoughts are with you and your family in this time. I lost a pal that way so, to an extent, I know what you are going through. Stay strong. M

    I'm so sorry !!! I was expecting a fun, joke thread ... but this is terrible. I'm sorry.

    Thank you for sharing. It helps us put our own lives in perspective. Our little day to day aggravations are nothing compared to what you're going through.

    I'm ticked off at an ebay transaction that fell through. I can't imagine your loss.

    We're all here for you. If playing the guitar can help you through this, play as much as possible.

    Best to you and your family.

    So saddening to read this.

    May you and the family come to terms with this without the common "If only I'd ____." Too often 12 people each blame themselves for the sad choice and circumstances of a loved one.

    These will be difficult days. May you find respite, and maybe even some relief, with your many friends here.

    I’m so sorry. I’ve got a tear in my eye.
    Plug in. Turn it way the F up and play it out of you.
