Sarah - I understand exactly how you are feeling. I lost my oldest son to suicide. The effect on family and friends is devastating and this may haunt you for a long, long time. I will pray for your friend and for you too. God will heal you but it will take time. Talking with a priest may help you cope. God bless you.
I found out this weekend that one of my friends I used to work with committed suicide. He was a veteran and I guess was having a hard time dealing with life. Sadly no one saw the signs in time to help him. His name was Jesus. Please pray for his soul and for his family.
And if you know any vets, or people struggling with problems, please give them a call to see how they're doing.
Hail Mary, full of grace.
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
