    Thumbs up A bad day in Spokane today...

    Just got new's that one of my best friends committed suicide last night. This was my go-to guy for working on my bikes. We were great friends for the last few years.
    Anyway, this is just horrible. Yesterday, they got in a fight and he beat the crap out of her (very surprising to me, I never saw that in him) she called the police and they were on their way. She decided to sleep on the couch and when she went out there, she heard him say: "Hey honey, watch this" She turned around and with her watching, he blew his brains out and committed suicide.
    Please remember her in your prayers...
    I will be there to support her the best I can, but this is something she will never forget. All of us are in shock over this today.

    Please pray for her. Her name is Leah.

    Prayers for Leah. Sending some your way too Tommy. Quite a spiritually draining time for you, so sorry.

    I'm strong spiritually Fred and I'll be ok. Yeah a little bit of a difficult month for sure with Ginger and now this. Now I have to figure out how to help Leah. I will call her later today. I encouraged her to just try to get some rest right now. I figured that tomorrow if she is up to it, to go visit her and give her a hug at least. I'm thinking that I will ask her if there are any bills outstanding that I can help her a little bit with and try to take a meal over for her and her mom right now. She isn't at the house now, but with her mom. Of course everyone always says: "if you need help, let me know" and of course she won't ask, they never do, so nothing gets done. She is going to need someone to clean the mess off the walls in the house, etc. Not a job that any one would want to do, but someone's got to do it for her. Please pray... I will do my best to help where needed, but she needs everything right now and I don't know quite where to start....

    Sorry for your loss. Suicides are especially difficult to handle. Hang in there.
