Not How I Would Start my Month

February 1 started just not right. At 4 am I was browsing Facebook while drying my hair in front of an electric fan. I saw that the Chairman at my previous job passed away last night. I was deeply saddened. I felt it in my heart. Then I dressed up and went my way to the city as a big day at work awaits me. I have so many things to do. While on he road at 6 am I messaged a friend who is still in thatompany and she confirmed the loss. He was a good man and he loves teasing me when I was still there. After work I sent a message to my mom that we will go the wake. And that is when she told me that a cousin working abroad died. He committed suicide. He had a depression attack. I am deeply saddened. The life of the one who lived to the fullest was taken and the one who lived his life in dark shadows took his own life. Well, this is not how I want to start the month. But things happen for a reason and things did happen.

I'm afraid I'm not of the persuasion that things happen for a reason - there are too many unreasonable things in the world for me to believe that. I'm so sorry about those two deaths.

Must be true for we do not really know the reason why he took his own life. Thanks

You have my deepest sympathy. It is never easy to lose someone. It is even harder when they have taken their own life.

Sorry for your loss. It isn't something we want to hear concerning someone that touched our lives. I often say that it isn't easy for the living to go on. Big hugs to you.

It's a shame. It's never pleasant hearing of people passing away, especially good people.

I'm sorry about your loss. But many things that happen in this manner are baffling. Sometimes things look good on the surface but may not be good deep inside. May their souls rest in peace.
