26. Thanks, sweetie.
I'm not making this about me. I have received numerous PMs from people telling me stories of suicides in their families. More people here than anyone can imagine have been through this tragedy.

We don't post "joke threads" about cancer (although I wouldn't be surprised if that, too, eventually happens) so why is suicide considered laugh material?

:hug: :loveya:
