This is so sad. My prayers go out to Marie. That would be terrible to deal with, losing a child in that way. May God be with her and help her thru this tragedy.

I've read all the comments left on this page about how Marie was obnoxious and this his depression was no doubtly passed on from his mom. Can't for one second everyone just stop the s%&t talking and realize this was someone's son, brother, etc. Yeah maybe Marie made some mistakes in her life raising him, but hell we all make mistakes. There's no one out there who's a perfect parent or perfect person for that matter. Just think if this was YOUR brother, son, or friend. Don't look at Marie as some mother who "messed up" but look at her as someone who lost their child. Until you're a parent yourself, it's pretty easy to talk trash. The fact of the matter is this lady lost her child. Show some f#$%ing compassion people.

I would be verrry afraid, those of you who are being quick to pass judgement on Marie Osmond. You just need to hope and pray that one of your loved ones does not go the route of suiside. I'm sure you have the same size shoulders to match your mouth so surely you Mr/Ms, could handle the situation with ease.
'Judge not, lest ye be judged also?
Your time may come in some way when you least expect it.
Its a disease,, read up on it.

15.> and her other daughter is a lesbian
15.> how the Mormon church must weep

One wonder if the church would shed anything but crocodile tears at another dead lez. Their strictures against defiance are pretty stringent, speaking from my ignorance.

18. > I hope her family can find peace soon.

Not today.

Not any day.

First, MJ.

She probably couldn't imagine life could get worse.

Life can ALWAY get worse.

Today, it did.

I empathize, most fully.

TMZ Staff> An autopsy will be performed
TMZ Staff> and toxicology tests will be taken.

Autopsy? What's that supposed to tell us?

The functional MRI that might've done some good doesn't provide useful information on the deceased.

The psychological evaluation that might've usefully diagnosed what ailed him isn't viable any longer.

The "friends" and "family" and co-workers and fellow students that presumably saw the behavior and responses ever day and night can't any longer do ANYthing for him.

Toxicology? Maybe psychotropic meds could be relevant; anything else merely signifies an obviously ineffective attempt to dull unremitting and unbearable pain.

What is wrong with some of you? Have compassion for a grieving mother and family. I lost my 37-year-old son on February 17th to suicide. Our family is devastated by our loss. What's it going to take for you to feel the pain of losing someone dear.....losing your loved one?

People are human and being in show business does not change the human conditions that happen in our lives. Depression is one of those conditions! I am so sorry that Maries' son suffered so severely and ended his life before help became available. RIP sweet young man and may you find the happiness that eluded you in life.nothing can hurt you anymore. God Bless
