My best friend's fiancee's mom killed herself tonight. They are due to be married in December and now I don't know what will happen. He had a fight with her a few weeks back. It was all a big misunderstanding, he just wanted to know whether his fiancee was alright, so he called her and got no answer and then he called her dad, who then went home to check on his daughter (like any father would). She inferred that he didn't trust her enough to take care of her daughter, which simply wasn't true, but I guess the depression told her otherwise. I think she was afraid of losing her daughter, and now her daughter has lost her forever. I called them to send my condolences, but I feel so helpless. I wish there was something more that I can do. I want to get in my car and go to give them support, but I know that would be inappropriate, and they probably need to work this out alone. I don't know what to do. I am so scared her family will blame my friend for what happened. I know that will probably be a normal response, as it often happens in these kind of situations. But he did absolutely nothing wrong! Why must life be so cruel? In a few months they would have been married (still could be I dont know) and if her mother just held on, she would have seen that he only meant well and only wanted the best for her daughter. Why do these things happen? How can a condition warp your thoughts so much, that you think everyone is better off without you, and that your daughter will recover from seeing her mother in a pool of blood and be better off for it? Why is it possible to throw away everything you worked for for years, in just a moment's weakness? To anyone who reads this, who thinks that people will be better off without you (I used to be one of them), believe me, you don't know how wrong you are! Somewhere, someone is going to be affected. I just hope they can get through this together! Perhaps her mother's pain is gone, but her's unfortunately is just starting..
