Died peacefully with candles lit?

No. Statistically, most died by gun or by hanging. www.afsp.org.

3. A friend of mine scuttled his sailboat off the Farallon Islands

Great Whites finished him off.

He actually planned it that way.

4. At the survivors group I attended

the husband of the facilitator walked into the lake and drowned himself.
But intentional drowning to suicide is rare.

More like hopelessness.

9. My grandfather, by hanging, 1944

My father was 15.

If they'd been affluent enough to afford a gun, I'm sure he would have shot himself.

10. When I attempted,

I over-dozed twice. Tried passive hanging once ( my son died by hanging ) but it hurt. A lot. And I stopped. If I had had access to a gun, I would be dead now.

11. My best friend of 45 years killed herself this August 28th (on or about), 2012

August 29th would have been her 50th birthday. She took a couple "handfuls" of drugs she had been prescribed.

I am not capable of watching the video ...
