When I lost my husband, Mark, to suicide in April 2003, I thought I already knew how to deal with the grief since I had lost my previous husband Tom in April, 1987. I had a rude awakening. Grief due to death by suicide is vastly different than grief due to death by cancer. I was being swallowed up by the grief by the time I found our grief group. The group became my weekly lifeline. And thank God it was weekly. Anyone who has been touched by suicide owes it to their own emotional health to find a group like this to share with and learn from.
