My parents are going though hard times. They are OK, but friends and relatives are not.
They old neighbor commited suicide. He's been fighting cancer for a long time and had a morphene pack to help with the pain. He was using so much morphene that it was no longer effective.
Rather than go in for hospice care, he decided to shoot himself in the head.
My cousin's daugther, who was in a car accident six weeks ago, is still in a coma. Her father is now paralyzed from the waste down.
