    Wow bro, that is so sad. I feel terrible for the people who are so tormented to the point of taking their lives. Hopefully you have plenty of fond memories to fall back on with your friend.

  10. Condolences from Cleveland.

    That's really sad to hear, you have my condolences man. Prayers and good thoughts going out to the family.
  13. It's the hardest thing, IMO, to have to get that news. Close, far, etc. I've had to deal with it a few times, and it's always miserable. I'm sorry for your loss, and, most importantly, if you need to go talk to someone, do it. It's worth the time / money / etc.

    Thanks for the words guys. OJ was the type of guy who pretty much everyone who ever met him rooted for, even if he made you look like little league on the field or track.

    It kills me that he took his own life. He always seemed to be full of positive energy and had everything going for him the last time I spoke with him.

    He will be missed for sure.

    I've avoided this thread all day. I'm very sorry for the loss and sorrow of everyone he left behind.

    A good friend of mine killed himself 18 years ago, and I am still pissed off at him. This isn't my best subject........

    I was reading about this this morning. I had a close friend take his own life, and it saddens AND angers you. We as a people need to take depression more seriously. Sorry for your's and the family's loss.
