My family has gone through the same thing. First, the mother died of environmental causes. Second, my brothers(2) committed suicide. How do we cope? Keep busy.

They are christian based laymen trained in helping people cope with tradgedies like this. There are alot of people who care and want to help you through this difficult time. You may want to look into this on their website. God Bless and feel free to e-mail me anytime.

Sorry to hear of your loss Kelly.. I lost my brother to suicide in 1977 and still am finding it hard to come to terms with his death.. Christ's love for all of us makes us stronger and helps with the healing process.. One day at a time..

A loss of a close family members is always hard to bear and when its suicide more strength then ever is needed by the survivors just to try and understand the passing from this world into the next. God's control in our lives can be seen in various ways and it is up to us to search the scriptures about these questions for as they say "for in them ye think ye have eternal life." Sincerely, Audrey

keep reaching for Him! i am so sorry for you all and may our Heavenly Father open our eyes to His comfort...our understanding is not like His. lets keep our eyes on our precious Saviour, even in situations of "how could You allow this". <><

kelly; I am so sorry for the pain and loss you are going through. My brother decided to take his own life 9-8-2004. I remember how my heart broke that day. One of the first things I did was contact my church and ask for prayer and support. My Pastor told us to just let "Jesus hold us".
Since that time I have had many emotional changes, but I am so thankful that my hope is in the Lord. As soon as your able, find a support group and ask for prayer.

My father-in-law committed suicide in 1979. We coped by leaning on our church and our faith. It was the most difficult time in my husband's life.

Kelly, My sister committed suicide in 2000 and its been very hard on my family. The Lord was gracious to me in that time and I pray you will know His comfort too. I created a website where I share my personal testimony and I hope it will minister to families going through the same. I will let you know the web address when I find it. It seems to be lost right now.

Are you Christian Kelly and Gregg? There are other Christian resources you may be interested in. Please post if you are. Remember that God loves you no matter what has happened. Don't allow the accuser of the brethern to steal that precious truth from your heart. May God bless you both and hug you close to His heart. Praying for you both.Hang on tight to our Fathers hand there are better days ahead.

Kelly and Gregg, I am so sorry this has happened to you. May God surround you with His perfect peace that passes all understanding in the days ahead. My only brother did the same thing. First, DONT blame yourself. Once this thought becomes firmly implanted in the mind, only the Grace of God can remove it - nothing else.Yes, keep busy, but also immerse yourself in the passages in Gods Word that speak of trust, peace, and who you are in Christ. See the Freedom in Christ website for this last one. This is critical for healing.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like my support. Your friend in Christ, Char
