Kathleen, May the Lord wrap his arms around this family ... May they feel his peace in their hearts...
A young cousin ( 27) has committed suicide and the family is very divided. Her parents have been divorced for 26 years. She did not keep in contact with most of her family. She had some emotional problems from all of this upheaval in her life. Unfortunately, she had some problems with the law and her husband recently and so she killed herself this past week.
Her mom and siblings are forbidding my uncle from attending the viewing and may prevent him from attending the memorial service telling him that he is the cause of her suicide.
If this was an isolated incident I would say grief had a lot to do with it but unfortunately there has been so much hatred for years from the ex wife and now the other kids that it is almost unbearable. My mom went to go help him through this and she too is experiencing the backlash of hate .
Please pray for peace on Wednesday at the memorial service. It is going to be the hardest day for my uncle . We need heavenly help and your prayers would be much appreciated.
