Getting Through : In Remembrance

In loving memory of a father, a brother & a son

from Sara S. - Wednesday, April 09, 2003

Sadly S. R. (of R. M.W. & S.) took his own life in the end of March this year.  Of course, no one knows the reason for this-as it seemed he had “everything going for him”.

He spent most of his time in The Family in Thailand and the East, and left The Family in 1996-1997. 
He lived in Texas and was an LVN working with terminally ill patients at a hospice.  He enjoyed travel and recently got his PATTI license for driving.  He is described by his brother as eccentric and was someone that liked to “push the limits”.
His next of kin (his brother) was notified on March 31st and the memorial was held on Saturday April 5th.  35-40 people as well as all of his immediate family (except the children) attended the funeral.
He was 29 years old.  He is survived by his 3 children, 4 brothers and his parents.
Those that knew and loved him will miss him greatly! 
We wish that this had not happened, and will never understand why he chose this path-he will always be in our thoughts.
*Editors Note:
The newly deceased’s name has intentionally been withheld as per the wish of his ex wife, out of respect for his children (who don’t know how their daddy died).  If his name (or any name that will enable the children to figure this out) is in any comment to this article, the comment will either be changed or deleted.
Rumors have already been going around the “grapevine” and many know who he is.  If you are not sure (but think you know) please contact the editor of this section (and article) through the link in the profiles.
Thank you for your understanding!

My heart breaks. I am at a loss for words. There seem none to express the loss. My thoughts are with his brothers. They are loved by those who they may have forgotten but who have never forgotten them.

I can remember knitting scarves as a teenager with his mother at Christmas time. She chose a different color for each of her boys. I remember how rich the colors were. I remember how they represented the different personalities of each of her sons. Each was so unique, but I liked them all. They were funny together and often made me laugh. I will always hold that family close to my heart, although they have been so far removed from my life. May flights of angels carry him to his rest.

I know all of his brothers as well as his parents very well, and I am sorry for your loss, guys. Please don't ever start thinking along similar lines, you all have much to offer the world and much to collect from it.

I would also like to take a selfish moment to request that in the off-chance I should die while this board is still running and populated, that my demise not be published as an article on this site. There just doesn't seem to be any way for a death to be announced on this board without some petty bickering and name-calling breaking out.

I heard about this a few days ago and Just want to express my deepest condolences to his Brother.

"Brother", I didn't know you all that well, but I can imagine the pain that you must be feeling over this loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of sorrow.

God damn it, did U actually know SR?? What the hell is this "noone knows why he did it, he had so much going for him", yeah he had a pretty good job as a nurse, but people need more than a good-paying job, everybody needs acceptance in some group. for all your condolences, if U knew him U probably would've just talked trash about him like so many others so lets cut this bullshit. The best you got was that he was eccentric, yeah he was quite nerdy, and the tall, lanky guy never quite fit in, I thought he was pretty cool in his way, U probably would've passed him in the street anyway as someone who wasn't cool enough for U so please dont bullshit us with this "U will be missed" crap. I do feel bad for kids N, C, and Ch, and hopefully they dont hear about this for awhile and will be able to deal with it when they do, I only knew one of SR's brothers briefly, my condolences to all U, take care.

To USELESS-why the hostility? 


To answer your question-no, I didn’t know SR, but I do know his brother, and he helped write the article.

I really can’t believe that you used the term nerdy…I haven’t heard that word used seriously in ages.  As far as how you think I would have acted had I seen him walking down the street-do not assume to know me, because you don’t.

The reason the article was written and worded the way it was is because what he did is not right, but that is no reason to trample on his grave.  Mabye you won’t miss him, but others will and I don’t think your saying  dont bullshit us with this "U will be missed" crap” is appropriate.

If you had problems with guy, fine, but don’t take it out on me, I did a favour for a friend.
