Thank you for posting the link to this article Hugz22. As difficult as it sometimes is to read yet one more story of a family agrieved by suicide, it gives me hope that the awareness level of the world will change, and with the change will come a lessening of the stigma.

It was heart breaking when the news came out that this precious girl was only 14 years old when she died. But the strenght and courage of the family is uplifting for all those who have lost someone to suicide. Chosing to go public with the news of their loss, starting campaigns and awarness. I really admire their hard work and determination. It's a long road, but it does not hadve to be travelled alone.
