My brother committed suicide a few days before Christmas. He was found in a motel room; police say he suffocated himself. I’m shaken by my loss. I can’t help but think it could have been prevented if we just hung out more, talked more, told him I love him more. Everything seemed to be going well for him, promotion, better hours, sweet new Dodge Challenger. Seeing my mom and the rest of my family so upset is breaking my heart. I don’t know how to deal with this. I wish he knew how much we all love him. I miss him so much, it hurts. I can’t accept the fact that I’ll never see him again. I just miss him.
