RIP Robert Hallman

Robert Hallman RIP 6/4/2012


What causes suicide?  Why would someone contemplate and actually follow thru with it?  How can one become so desperate and so depressed to end their lives?


Zachary's friend, Bob committed suicide three days ago.   His 8th grade brother found him and called 911. It is so sad to think a boy would feel so alone and that low the commit suicide.  My heart breaks for him and for my son. 


It was touching to see that the school held a candle light vigil.   The following video is a tribute to Bob that a fellow student recorded from that night.

  3. Such a tragedy. He was so young. He must have been in terrible pain. My heart goes out to all his family and friends, including your son. It is hard to make sense of it, I know. Take care.

  5. That is so sad. I have a best friend from HS whose son committed suicide when he was 12. That was twelve years ago. I will pray for his family.
