Why?

To follow up on the post I wrote on Monday...

My mom read my post about the father who wrote to me about the son he lost. I truly hope he doesn't mind but my mom was inspired to write a poem to let him know that he and his family are not alone, our family is going through the same loss and pain.

I should try not to read this at work coz now I am an emotional wreck. And that was what was hard for me to deal with, was he struggling about his feelings to the end? I guess we will never know. It is nice to see that Leesh without meaning to a family found some kind of strength and start moving on. That alone is precious.

your mom is so gifted and being able to use her writing as a form of release is awesome. i've had three friends who committed suicide, two were successful. one tried twice this year. i was there for her on both times. it's hard.
