Mrs Patton, I'm saying a prayer for you tonight. My heart feels the pain as well. I lost my best friend, Noble this last March to suicide. This journey is dark and heavy, Lord bring light and carry Pamela, her daughter in law, their children and grandchildren through this despair, bring a reason to embrace life as you would have their days be full and share meaning with those whose paths they cross. There is a destiny for each of us, show each of them that hopeful destiny and bring encouragement to the sadness that is left by the loss of Christopher. Especially this night bring comfort and peace to Pamela.
With Love, Ali

๐Ÿ’œthank you for your kind message.... May peace find you.


My son also lost his fight with depression and PTSD. He turned to crystal meth as a way of fighting it and he lost. My prayers are with you, as we suffer this loss due to something out of our control, depression.


Im keeping You and your son in my prayers. Do take care of you.

I may have lost my brother, my sister, my parent, my child, my friend, my spouse, my partner ... but I am alive.   I am a survivor of the dark night of unspeakable loss, of my own darkness and ... I am alive.

I am unwilling to stand idly by and allow shame to defeat love or silence to defeat action.  I stand for the enlightenment of a society that would hide from suicide ... and I am alive.

I am unwilling for my perseverance to be in vain.Unwilling for the passing of my loved one to be in shame. I loved them more than I loved myself and their life will have meaning in my action.  I am alive.

In a world blinded by the pursuit of pleasure, I am here to say that people are in pain. In a world rushing to get ahead, I am here to say that people are being left behind.In a world obsessed with the value of the market, I am here to speak for the value of life ... and I'm alive

This will be no quiet fight. I am the voice of audacity in the face of apathy. I am the spirit of bravery in a world of caution. I am a commitment of action in the face of neutrality.

I am into the light and I am alive."

Dan Pallotta at the Out of the Darkness Suicide Awareness Walk in DC, 2002

"I'll cry with you,"
she whispered
"until we run out of tears.
Even if it's forever.
We'll do it together."

There it was . . . a simple
promise of connection.

The loving alliance of
grief and hope that
blesses both our breaking
apart and our coming
together again.

Molly Fumia, Safe Passage
