    So,so sorry to hear TJ. I have 2 gay sons and worry about them so much. It is still a cruel world out there if you don’t “fit in”. So much hate in the world. It is difficult for them to see past the hate. My worst fear.

    So difficult to learn not to wear other people's hangups and they what others say about you doesn't define you.

    Even more so when living in such a bubble.

    So incredibly sad. I have nothing beyond that. My thoughts with you and your friends family. Just terrible stuff.

    Man, I hate hearing this over and over. Kids killing themselves because of being bullied. Hate bullies. Never understood why someone would enjoy degrading/beating up another person.

    Sorry for your family's loss TJ. Its devastating!

    I don't usually peruse this particular subsection of the forums, but decided to do so today, in a long while.

    This is sad, sad news to be greeted by.

    I am SO sorry for your loss and the loss of your godson's family. I have 12yo and 18yo sons myself. I cannot even imagine.

    Words cannot express how much this saddens and terrifies me. My kids are both around that age. Very sobering.

    I'm so sorry TJ. It doesn't mean much but my heart is with you and the family.

    I know I'm a month late.

    I don't think you can tell them anything to comfort them, other than: I'm here for you. Whatever you need, I'm here.
