Day 279

Some days are rougher than others......but no matter how hard of a day or easy of a day is when you see something like this it ALWAYS melts my heart.

Day 278

Today this young man (the adult not the child) will be laid to rest. His name was Jake. I wasn't friends with him. I was in his ward many years ago. I knew of him and I knew his family. I learned of his passing on Monday. He took his life Sunday night.

I have had a difficult week. I don't know why I am having such a time with him passing. I wasn't friends with him. I do remember him but it's been many years since I went to my Dad's ward. He's been on my mind a lot this week. My heart breaks for his family. My heart breaks even more for him. To be that sad, to think this was his only choice was to leave this world. 

I never realized until this week how much I mean to other people. I don't know why I realized this. But I mean more to my kids than I mean to myself, if that makes sense. 

I am not able to go to the funeral due to Richard's work hours. Looking at his pictures on his Family's FB brings tears in my eyes, and with me not being the type of girl to cry I am just confused to this all. All I know is I pray that his family feels comfort, that they can work through their issues and they will be able to see their son again someday. I pray that he now realizes how much he meant to his family and how much he will be missed even by people he didn't know.

Day 276

Working on the kitchen floor. The cat and dog decided to stare each other down! Neither would move their eyes off the other. Silly animals!

Day 274

Today I learned some heart aching sad news. My old neighbor lost the battle to depression and last night he took his own life. He was only 27.

I knew his Mother and Sister more than I did him. But I do remember him. I found out about his passing from my Dad. He was outside when the ambulances and police were going up the road towards their house. They live in a gated community just up the street from my Dad's house and in his ward. When he got there he discovered what had happened. My Dad then took care of the aftermath (he shot himself). He called the service to come and clean it up but no one was available to come that day and my Dad did not want to make the parents wait any longer and cleaned up the mess. 1 I don't know how my Dad did that and 2 it just melted my heart that my Dad was brave enough to do it for the family. What a horrible thing they didn't have to go through and he offered to do it for them. I still don't know how he did it.
