I agree Robert. :/ We don't notice, others don't notice us even. Everyone is wrapped up in trying to get through each day, one day at a time and one day there is someone who cant make it that day, and its over. I feel that way daily, and I know many others do. Its a battle to just keep going. I pray Steven has found the peace he was looking for.

Thank you to Robert & Jen. Steven was my cousin and I'm so sorry that we didn't see each other more over the years. My heart goes out to my aunt and both his sister and brother. It's devastasting to hear the sadness he must have felt which compelled him to end his life. We will celebrate his life tomorrow when we say our goodbyes.

So sorry for this to happen and then family and friends have to see such horrible comments. Some people have no life and troll on the internet to make such negative comments to give themselves joy...some people just have no compassion or empathy...either way very sad statement about some in our society. I pray Steven is at peace and hope the family can ignore the hateful comments

Thank you Jen for clarifying the date of the incident. I had heard about the 12/22 incident but the Riverside County Sheriff's Department is inaccurately reporting that this incident took place on 12/28. It makes more sense now. I am very sorry for the loss you've experienced. After almost losing my mother to a suicide attempt a few years ago, I can definitely say that depression is no joke, and anyone who hasn't had to deal with a family member struggling with it has no idea what it's all about.

Ha it's funny that the peanut gallery is silent now that friends and family have decided to comment. Assholes.
