Al's Friend

A somber moment came Monday with a call from my friend Al. He is a passionate, intelligent man who is knowledgeable on an impressive amount of subjects. But Al is at a loss over the suicide of his best friend Dan. No one really knows how to deal with being left behind. Please offer your condolences for his grief on his site bluealto.

Suicide is always unpleasant. My uncle....23 years ago.....horrible.

It is never easy: it is always sad and upsetting.
I feel sorry.

One of my dearest friends frequently jokes about killing himself. And when I say frequently, I mean daily. It's always so awkward because if I confront him about it suddenly it's like I did something wrong. But if one day I wake up and he's gone I don't know how I'd be able to live with myself.

I think suicide is selfish in the highest regard. It's cowardice.
