Today I learned that a co-worker committed suicide at his home here in Oregon. As I sit here in shock still I am working hard to remember all the good things about him instead of the selfish thing that he did today. I will miss you Rob....your laugh, your smile and joking around at work. I wish there could have been something someone could have said or done to make you see that you were loved and this was not the answer to your problems....but only the beginning for the rest of us who you left behind. I will NOT grab a brownie, ice cream or anything else to blow my journey of weight loss..but instead I will dedicated my workouts and last 40lbs of loss to you! RIP my friend...I hope you find the peace you were searching for!

    Its so sad...Most of us had no idea things were this fact I have heard a lot of "I thought he was doing better"" which just adds to the shock of it all. He is not the first I know of to kill themselves and unfortunately may not be the last..I just wish I could let people know that in the end...its the ones left behind to deal that suffer..and I don't think that is what the intention really was at all.

    its so discouraging to hear about this, there have been 1 kid and employee at my sons school that committed suicide and all I can think is that anything that your going through only happens for a season, and I always wish that words like that can be posted letting those in situations like that understand it is never permanent whatever your going through and you will be taking a valuable life,
