I am sorry to hear that.
Unfortunately it has a sad and lasting effect on those close to the person who chose to do this.
My Girlfriend is the youngest of Seven. Two of her siblings committed suicide a few years apart about. They suffered from depression, severe enough for them to take their own life.
It still affects the other Five siblings to this day. I think it was 2002 and 2008 when this happened.My girlfriend still mentions them and expresses how she misses them.
I hope the High School boys affected by this can talk about it and keep talking until they are healed from it.
