51. No, it's not rational
There is so much pain in a suicide. And of course, the pain and devastation they leave behind is horrible. My girlfriend who killed herself had lived through her mother's suicide. Same method. Gunshot. You'd think the last thing she'd do to her children would be the same thing. Yet she did. Her daughter was almost exactly the same age as she'd been when she lost her mother.

Why? You have to wonder. But as you say, it's not rational. It's an act of desperate pain. I'm sorry for your losses as well. Nobody wins. Especially the children left behind.
