I don't think anyone here thinks this is funny Cheryl.

Maybe people don't respect Marie. Doesn't mean they don't feel sorry for this sad boy.

Marie will recover with a new cook book, movie of the week, or a feature down the line. She'll be fine. I just feel sorry for the management office who has to rent out the now vacant residence. What will be the rental pitch? "This is where Marie Osmond's Son leaped to his death. If you look closely, you can see where his head indented the pavement."

111. She should have seen the signs. Marie should have spent less time trying to be in front of the camera. Could have & should have checked on all her kids. Not to worry, doesn't she have seven (7) more kids?

Folks - know the signs of depression!

you can’t sleep or you sleep too much
you can’t concentrate or find that previously easy tasks are now difficult
you feel hopeless and helpless
you can’t control your negative thoughts, no matter how much you try
you have lost your appetite or you can’t stop eating
you are much more irritable and short-tempered than usual
you have thoughts that life is not worth living (Seek help immediately if this is the case)

Maria obviously knew her son was depressed, yet continued on her media tour. Teenagers are incredibly difficult to keep balanced, let alone one who is depressed. She never should have left him, and I'm sure the divorce didn't help any.

I think people feel very bad for this boy, they dislike marie that's obvious...PEOPLE ARE ENTITLED TO THEIR OPINION (GOOD OR BAD). If they care then ok and if they don't then that's ok too. Some people don't care, the care about other tragedies, some people strongly believe she was a media whore, just a bad mom and are not shocked by his helpessness and that's ok too.

I'm pretty sure there is no resting in peace after suicide.

However, I can't be sure.

Karma is witchcraft.

Sad for this kid.

Suicide is the third leading cause of death among teenagers. Please do not act as though it is something unique to this poor family. They were well aware of the problem, and had made numerous attempts to provide interventions and help for him. Depression is a disease. If effort were enough, there would be no alcoholism, , drug addiction, or depression in our world. For that matter, all children would be honor roll students and never commit any crimes. Bad things also happen to really good people. Think before you comment without being so judgmental; "there but for the grace of God go I". Be kind to this family in their time of need and please be kind to each other. There may be a time when we are the ones in need and hurting beyond human imagination. This family is hurt and wounded.

Thats so sad. Depression kills, to all the a$$holes on here that its funny to make jokes about someone who has killed themselves really should do the same thing to themselves because those people are just a waste of space on this earth.

Why are people blaming Marie? First of all, Michael was adopted thus he does not have Marie's genes. He was in rehab in '07 possibly for drugs. He stated he suffered from depression which probably is genetic, and again, not from Marie or her husband's genes.

Please, people, don't stomp on someone when she's just been told her son committed suicide.

91. Well I guess this makes 3. Atleast there wont be anymore suicides in the news for a while.

He obviously didnt pay attention to the news and the "suicide isn't the answer" message. Very selfish.
