Bing,
I walk past picture everyday on my way to work. Can't believe it almost two years since you went missing. You were only 14. We will not forget you.

I would like to light a candle for my mum, my best friend, a truly inspirational lady who touched the lives of many with kindness and grace. If I can be a fraction of the person she was I will be a happy camper. Love you and miss you, 4 years tomorrow since we lost you, will never forget you. xx

I am inconsolable. My wonderful brother Lance, was tragically killed by another driver on his way home from work on his motorcycle yesterday. I was truly blessed to have such a beautiful soul as my brother. I will love and miss you forever Lancie. You brought light, laughter and happiness wherever you went - especially in my heart. You were the best brother a girl could ever dream of having, and the best father and son. Our song, "He's my brother" by the Hollies is etched in my heart forever.

I feel selfish asking to light a candle for me
But I'm waiting to hear my results from a biopsy
And am going though I hard time.
I just want to know now, not knowing is so
Hard.

I light a candle for my "baby" brother ...
It's 2 weeks today that he decided that he was in too much emotional pain, and decided to end his life.
I tried so hard to help him through it, and be there for him.
He left behind 2 beautiful sons, 4 nephews and 3 nieces that loved him dearly.
I wish with everything I am that I could have "saved" him somehow.

I miss him with every inch of my soul, and I will never understand how he thought this would be a better way; regardless...I loved him then, and I love him now.

RIP my sweet, sweet baby brother...You were not only my brother, you were my friend...I will NEVER forget you !

I guess it's my turn to light a candle in here - I just got some bad news about a former co-worker. He had been battling throat cancer for a long time, he even went into remission, but then I guess it came back. He had surgery, chemo, radiation, the works. I didn't hear anything from him for awhile, but I knew he was generally doing poorly. I had heard he couldn't walk more than like 10 feet without getting tired so he stayed in his room all day every day. He was like that for awhile but seemed to be hanging in there, and he kind of got pushed to the back of my mind. For some reason though yesterday I started thinking of him and wondering how he was doing, was going to drop him a line and say hi. But I just heard that he passed away! It's very sad. We used to work closely together and he had to stop working because of his cancer, but he kept telling me he wanted to get back to work soon - and he would check up on me too, to see how I was doing - he told me he felt really badly about me being ill and that he was worried about me (!!) because my IBD had first reared its ugly head just before he got sick, so we were the two people at work always going to doctor appointments back then. He was a nice person and it's really hard to think that he's gone. I just pulled up his obituary but haven't been able to read it yet, and it hasn't really sunk in yet. I'm just in shock right now.

If anyone reading this is a smoker - please, quit! My co-worker was a life-long smoker, and he used to brag that he was healthy as a horse and hadn't even been to the doctor in decades because he was so healthy. Well, that wasn't truly the case, and throat cancer snuck up on him. By the time he went to the doctor for it (his voice was a little hoarse, that was his only symptom), it was already stage 3. This guy was only in his mid 50s when he died. So please, don't smoke - even if you think you're fine, cancer can sneak up on you.

I'm lighting a candle for a school friend who took her own life on August 2nd she hung herself. I can't believe it and am still in shock. She was only 22 and was in my year at school. She always seemed happy at school according to a friend she was struggling with living from the ages of 12-13 years old. She got admitted to hospital 6 times due to mental health and she'd tried to take her life loads of times before but it didn't work. My heart goes out to her family can't imagine how they are feeling. They must be destroyed. It must of gotten so bad in her head that she couldn't think of another way out of it. Just hope she has found peace bless her. Was looking through my leavers book at her photos and you wouldn't think she was so unhappy Also on the same day I found out school friend had killed herself also found out Dad's auntie had died in July but nobody had told us till last week apparently someone had said to let us know but they didn't I didn't know her but still liked to have known she'd died. I need strength to get through all of this

John I can't believe its a year today you got tragically and brutally taken away from us. It's not the same without you. We miss you so much I've cried so many tears this last year and the last few days just thinking of you. I know you wouldn't want us to be upset but its hard not be under the circumstances. I still remember you saying to me at work when I got upset over something and you said what you crying for I'm not going anywhere. Now look at us mourning your loss. It's not right why did this happen to you? I need strength to get through this. It's something we won't ever get over

I'd like to light 3 candles, the first 1 it's for my lovely father-in-law, Jackie, who passed away on 3rd April very suddenly, he went out like a light sitting with his beloved wife, here one minute and gone the next. He is very sadly missed .

The second is for my father, Jack. He'd been ill for some time having had a fall in hospital which meant he needed brain surgery, at 78 it was just too much for him and he left us on 8th may, exactly 5 years and 1 hour after my mum. He always said he wanted to go the same day as she did and he got his wish. He was surrounded by his family when he left us and is at peace now back the mum. And of course the 3rd candle is for my mum Beth. Five years gone on 8th may (2 days after my 40th birthday), never gone from my heart, reunited now with dad. A few days before she died mum gave dad back her eternity ring and told him they would be together for ever. I miss you both so much thank you for everything you gave me which I will carry in my heart with love always.

I wanted to let everyone know that another forum member, Dan (DanSJVDavis) has passed away. I did not know him well but maybe other members did. I don't have information as of yet as to how he died but will post more information as I hear it or someone else can post more information if they know what happened.

I've been told that he was 43 and left a wife and 2 kids.

Lighting a candle for you Dan. We'll all miss you.

I'm lighting this candle in memory of Daniel Kyre a member from the YouTube group Cyndago. He was taken off of life support on Sept 18th after a suicide attempt on Sept 16th. I didn't know him personally but after you watch someone for so long they start to feel like a friend or part of your distant family. Cyndago announced that they will no longer make anymore videos. Their videos and songs always made me laugh. Check them out for yourself on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdN...yA_feUyoY9jDKw

If any of you are contemplating suicide please talk to someone about it. You can also contact me or any staff member about it at anytime. There's always help to get you through this tough time. We're all here for each other.



I'm going to share one of my favorite videos they did. It's not safe for work (NSFW).
