  • Andrew Bond … dating already??


  • It is so hard to know when someone is suffering with depression. I know because I am one. It’s very disheartening to read this and know that she may have taken her son’s life as well. My thoughts and prayers are with the father at this sad time.


  • The indicators were there, but they sometimes only fall as puzzle pieces together when the act is committed. So sad.
