Early this morning, I learned than an orgmate (organization mate) died. I did not know his cause of death, until I e-mailed the org's yahoogroup, about his death. Nobody wanted to mention about his death, until i opened the topic in the group. I was so shocked when I leard about his death upto now. They said that he committed suicide. He died of a single gunshot to his head. Apparently, it was a case of accidental firing an email said. Which I still could not believe. We were not that close, but I strongly feel affinity towards this orgmate because I may seldom bond with the org, he was pretty much loved by my eldest brother. He was like a brother to him. In my case, the orgmate was one of the nice looking kids in the campus back then. The last time I saw him was during my brother's wedding. He was in his pilot uniform attire which made him more attractive. Anyways, upto now, I still feel heavy about his death. If indeed it was suicide, did not he know that it is more difficult for the loved ones he left. I mean, death when it strikes, it is as if the loved ones they leave behind wanted also to leave this earth. Did not they know that the loved ones they left would rather not feel the pain of losing them. These loved ones would rather experience rapture. All i am trying to say that when someone dies, the loved ones will forever be wounded. It takes time for them to eventually get over the fact that physically their loved one left already. It will take time to heal for them to realize that they will never embrace the person. The wound will always be there. I am just sad. So sad. To Gian, whatever your reason or whatever God's reason for this, I am wishing you peace. May you meet my younger brother there. Hug him for me. You will surely be missed.

This is a very sad story and what I can tell you is that there has been 2 I know of from our company. I would say that these things happen to people who may have a hard time expressing themselves to others especially to the loved ones. People who may have the difficulty of really seeking help. Sometimes taking ones life happens during their downest moment when they need someone to talk to. Whatever people may have to go through and the challenges that they face, it is sometimes the absence of someone to console with/to which might trigger them to end their misery. It is definitely the contribution of the environment and the people around that person with whom they live with. May your friend find eternal peace! God bless him and you!

I am really sorry to hear about your loss. I have known a few people who have gone out this way, and it's just so heartbreaking. There is nothing so big that it is worth taking your life. I am sorry for his family, and for you. how sad =/
