Please note that Peter has an older son from a previous marriage. The news artices keep saying he has two children only. Yes, he had the two girls with Catherine but we should extend our condolences to his son as well.

This is exactly why DEPRESSION cannot go untreated. It is a chemical problem that cannot be fixed without medicine and therapy. NOBODY kills themselves unless they suffer from this disease.
If there is someone YOU KNOW and love, help them get help. It's not a selfish act, it's an act of sickness.

I am sorry for your loss. To lose a husband to suicide is just terrible. My husband also died the same way after years of medical problems. It is worse with children because kids around them can be cruel. Keep the faith and my prayers are with yoy.

My sympathy to you and your children Catherine. I'm so sorry for your loss. May dear God Bless you and your family. Perhaps you will feel comfortable with some support from the Garden Grove Community Church in Garden Grove, CA? There are sincere and caring Christians there.

Suicide has WRACKED my family. I hope he found peace and that she will, too. As a survivor I can say "DO NOT BLAME YOURSELF" Easier said than done but still www.associatedcontent.com/article/1870647/happy_birthday_joey_rip.html?singlepage=true&cat=5
