My father was a very loving, hardworking, and one of the best people you could possibly meet. I want my father to be remembered as a man of strength even though he is not here anymore. My father had many interest including playing lottery tickets, reading the Bible, and vacationing down Wildwood. Even though he took his life I know he would want me to spread the message of suicide awareness and help other people going through it. Depression and addiction may have affected him and took over his life, but I know he is in a better place. Suicide is a topic that needs to be discussed more frequently because you never know if one day you will be in the position I'm in.
