It's shocking and heart-wrenching, especially considering the recent strain on his relationships with other people.
I don't know the whole story, at this point. I know that he had recently been having health problems and had been hospitalized for physical ailments. Perhaps the pain of what he was dealing with physically, and the mental illness/depression he has battled off and on made for a deadly combination.
I worry for my friend, a devout Christian who, as far as I know still has a pretty traditional view of Heaven, Hell, and Salvation.
I worry that this tragedy will only be the tip of what she might be dealing with emotionally.
Say a few prayers for my unnamed friend and her family.
