Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. 22 months ago one of my best friends took his own life. We still miss him and it’s still raw, so I’ve been posting this on my Facebook today. Anything that raises awareness, reaches out to someone who is struggling with suicidal thoughts and attempts to reduce some of the stigma attached to suicide and those bereaved by suicide is a good thing in my opinion.
I’m taking today to remember Richard and all the things he did for me and my family. He will always be one of my best friends. He is gone, but we won’t ever forget him. He’ll always be with us.
Richard Turner, January 1974 - November 2011.
