You haters should ALL STFU!!! While I'm not a huge MO fan, 2 things come to mind, they are:

1. This is a matter between MO, her family and God. I hope He can take some of the pain off her shoulders and gives her strength during this horrific time.

2. There is also something to be said about automony.. I believe, while NONE of us can get inside another's head, the person committing suicide is most likely (in their warped mind) taking the last act of control over their life as THEY see it. It's not for the remaining family to waste important time and energy TRYING to figure out the "why".. They will never know exactly what the suicide was thinking.. I truly believe in my heart that "it is what it is". There is nothing one can do to stop someone who is in such pain from committing suicide, if that person is bound & determined to do it.

Just a thought...

I think some of the above people are merely trying to be clever, witty and glib.

I don't think it's possible to comprehend what suicide is, and does, until one has gone through it.

The horrors of suicide defy language.

Oh how sad - but the truth is that nobody likes the entire Osmond Fake Family... Like #9 said... Anything for a buck doesn't make for a stable family life. This is really terrible and I hope they all learn from this...

Oh Marie! My heart breaks for you and your family. No one every really sees it coming, and it's always such a tragedy when depression finally overtakes a sufferer's mind. Short of locking them up, there is nothing you can do for anyone in that kind of pain.
