My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Alliance of Hope for Suicide Loss Survivors, Evanston, IL, USA
I lost my beautiful son Nicholas, July 12, 2013 to suicide. He was a beautiful outgoing man who I thought was happy with life. He had a beautiful wife and was expecting their first child. His wife told him they were expecting on Wednesday and Nicholas killed himself that Friday night by stabbing himself while he was in the shower. I will never forget being at work as an RN in an emergency room and that message being left on my voicemail. As a mother looking in from the outside, he showed no signs of depression or suicidal ideations. Nicholas had just taken me out for my birthday that Monday and his father had been down to see him the Saturday before his death. I cannot even begin to describe the anguish, dispair and shock. Nicholas left behind a sister who loved him dearly and the family is still trying to recover. Nicholas and Heather were nine months apart and were extremely close. My heart will never recover. If Nicholas could only have seen how much he was loved by the number of people that came to his funeral. If he had only leaned on those that loved him the most. My life has been changed forever and I try to stay strong to help his sister recover who is in therapy at this time. She has had so much tragedy in one year with loosing a baby in March, a brother in July and her dog of 12 years in August.
We hold on to our faith in God that he will help us recover from this huge loss in our lives. Nothing can ever replace the loss of my child in my heart but I believe God will help us recover in our sadness.
