Smaritans Walk for Suicide Prevention, Sept. 29, Massachusetts
Last night I spent many hours clearing out the apartment of someone I loved very much. It was Bobby’s brother and me crying and laughing and carrying boxes. In an effort to make something positive out of a tragedy I am participating in a fundrasing walk on September 29. I’ve attached the link above and knowing the level of kindness of those I have met on this blog I thought some of you would be interested. I’m also setting up a scholarship fund that I’ll administer through my nonprofit in the next few weeks. Someone as special as he was needs to be remembered for his kindness and he was only happy when he doing something for someone else. Hopefully the Samaritans will be able to help someone else with the funds raised. Thanks for reading.

Maureen, when I posted the Samaratins link on my page the first time, I heard from an old school friend of my brothers who lives in the Boston area, that Samaratins helped her and her family tremendously when her brother suicided. She also participates in Samaratin Walks in his memory. My thoughts are with you dear friend and can’t wait to welcome you with open arms in October.
The statistics are amazing. 30,000 people die and 750,000 attempts that are documented. It impacts so many people. Thank you for sharing the link. Love you lady and I can’t wait for October.
How beautiful that you were able to help his brother in that heart-wrenching task. You are one of God’s angels. Z
ahhh you have a beautiful heart and I love the quote!
That quote is beautiful and so is your kind soul. Thank you for raising awareness about these stunning statistics and individual tragedies.
What a wonderful way to remember your friend, Maureen….
