    and her family this Thanksgiving. My friend B lost her adult brother to suicide last August. B is holding up well but she's really struggling at keeping her mother together due to her intense grief. Her kids are struggling some too because B and her husband divorced this year and they're living with their uncle's suicide. Tomorrow, I think, will be torture for the entire family.

    Any good thoughts for tomorrow and the holiday season would be greatly appreciated.

    If you feel comfortable you can share that they have people thinking of them and I for one will pray for them tonight and tomorrow morning... hope they can find comfort in each other's arms....

    I will be doing the same for my mom, as my grandma just passed this summer. Doesn't matter how old you are, when you lose your mommy, it is really sad.

    Thanks everyone... they are a very nice family. My friend works full time, volunteers extensively with the elementary & middle school PTA's, and finds time to be there for her three kids. Her Mom helps watch the kids before and after school. Her brother's suicide has ripped a hole through her Mom. The kids are.... quieter (especially her oldest). The girl dotes on her uncle's dog (that they adopted after the suicide). It makes me sad to see them suffer so much. :crying:
