Finally…Exactly (3) weeks after his suicide our dear friend was picked up from the Medical Examiner’s Office by a local funeral home. I called to see if he had been cremated but the funeral home does not discuss end of life services, only if you are “shopping”. Just another step in a truly bizarre & tragic event.
I have struggled with the aftermath of his suicide daily, trapped in an emotional limbo much as his body was trapped in a cold metal drawer. Now I can hopefully begin the healing process. We who loved him so very much are comforted knowing his earthly body has made the final step towards the end of his life journey. We miss our friend every day and I pray that he has found the peace that he so desperately sought.
