Sending loving thoughts and prayers to William's entire family and friends. Death is never easy, especially when it is by suicide. Thank you for putting the cause of William's cause of death in his obituary as doing so might may even one person contemplating dying by suicide to think twice before doing so. Please know as a Suicide Interventionist that many times loved ones and friends don't see any signs that their loved is having dark thoughts. William is free from his suffering. Take as long as you need to grieve his passing and do not blame yourselves for not being able to prevent his death. I will continue to keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers. William is standing with & beside you as your Guardian Angel. Healing takes time and please don't hurry the process. Grief counselor's are available if you or family need to talk to one. Blessings ~~
