    As a pastor, I cringe when I hear the term “closure” used in the same sentence with grief. Thanks, Andy, for another great blog post.

      I agree, Parson. Closure is a crock.

    This is my 1st time reading your blog Andy, I must first express deep empathy and commend you for sharing your story… much of what your saying has also touched me!
    I also lost my daughter Brandy at age 19 sadly she took her own life and left me with a gaping hole that is hard iif not impossible to fill. I’ve heard those that commit suicide really don’t want to die, they just want the pain to go away! As her mother I would have taken her pain and turned it into mine to save her!, but that was impossible and I now wear the coat of many colors; grief, depression & deep sorrow with glimpses of Hope & Faith that I’ll see her again! I pray often for the Lord to continue to fill that hole w/ his love… it is a tough journey!
    Thank you,

      Linda, I agree, in my experience it seems most suicides the person lost contact with reality and distorted their world to the point suicide seemed like the only option. And leaves us with even more questions.
