    Thanks for posting this. I have a friend who died from suicide this summer. I have been struggling with this. I always felt that people who do this have a mental illness. How can God be mad or punish someone who is sick. Even mentally sick. My friend would have been so mad at me if I would have even thought of trying to do this. He would have been there for me. I wish I could have known and been there for him.

    When my brother died by suicide 7 years ago, I was comforted by an older priest who gave a great explanation to me. He told me that God doesn’t keep sick people out of heaven. My brother was manic -his ups and downs were so varied. He reached out to so many people to help them but it was difficult for him to reach out for help. His illness made it difficult to make good decisions for himself. One other note, I don’t say “committed” suicide -it indicates that he was of sound mind to make a clear decision. I always say “died of suicide”. If he was of sound mind, he would have thought of the pain & suffering it would have caused my mother, who passed away just 10 months later. He only wanted to end his own pain, he never would have wanted to cause others pain. I take comfort that they are together.
