Hey sis, great work you guys got going. I hope to be more involved if I can when we move over there, until then we're pretty busy with preparations and such! Talk to you later.

Good work! I am so happy to hear of this new project. I would love to help and be part of it. It has long been needed. My first suggestion would be to open a 24 hr suicide/will to life hot line. I was planning on doing this myself but it seems you are one step ahead.

This was another rough weekend, one of my best friends tried to commit suicide. We havenít even finished having one memorial and I almost had another. I was in LA at the time but she left a message on my answering machine saying goodbye. Lucky one of my roommates heard the message and called another friend of mine, and an ambulance was sent there. Although she did try, they were able to reach her in time and save her life.

I was sick to my stomach that she wasnít able to reach me at a time she needed me. I am since getting a cell phone and looking into a 1-800 number so that I can be reached at all times so this never happens again. Iím looking forward to hearing more about what you plan to do and how. Again, let me know if I can volunteer my time and services. Iím a bit busy at the moment with the memorial but afterwards I will have more time to help.

And please, to those of you who are struggling please hang in there. By taking your life you only let your abusers win. We need each of you to stay alive. As a good friend of mine wisely says..

ďDonít choose a permanent solution for a temporary problem .Ē

If you canít think of a solution for a problem or feeling you are having please call or email me. I will be posting my number as soon as I set it up. Again, good work La Mattery family.

This person has a large and very supportive extended family so even though you were not there, a lot of us were and are. These are tough times for everyone.(reply to this comment

Yes, Iím glad you are all there now. My point was not to say she did not have support of family and friends. I was saying that when she called me to say goodbye I could not be reached. Iím very close to this person and I would have never forgiven myself for having missed that call from anyone I love so dearly. Also, no one was aware when it happened my friend called my dad who was the one who sent someone over there and notified her family. Anyways, Iím sorry and yes as you said these are tough times for everyone.(reply to this comment

I heard of another individual that recently committed suicide, although the person wasn't an exer, the way it was relayed to me was that they possibly were. It freaked me out and set me right back to where I was a month ago. Suicide by any person ex or not is unfortunate. Your friend was fortunate to have you.

I've been scared that the suicides have been thrown into hyper-speed, there's a feeling of urgency that I have for parents and kids to re-connect because of this.

Although we're not shrinks, if someone is feeling suicidal I'd be willing to speak with you 24/7. Or please contact someone you're closed to and confide in them. Sarafina's quote is very appropriate.(reply to this comment

I absolutely love the name. Will you be opening a branch in the UK? I think I know quite a few people who would be interested in getting involved.

Baxter,

I am the research director of "Will to Life" and am currently in the UK. If you are interested in helping, there's plenty to do. I'll talk with Windy about specs, but do write me (niki_san@hotmail.com). Perhaps we can arrange either a phone or in person meeting to discuss details?

This sounds like a wonderful project and I am excited to hear this news. The LaMattery family has certainly been very active and engaged over the last few months in providing support to a number of other SGAs and in raising awareness. Their family's foundation may certainly help in the building of resources that are so sorely needed. I look forward to learning more about your specific values, principles and objectives.
