It is a real shame that people can get to a point that they feel this is their only option - as someone who has been through depression and faced those thoughts I urge anyone who faces these feelings to please reach out to someone, family, friend, anyone, even me - anytime
Even if it doesn't seem like it, there are people in this world who love you and would do anything to keep you in their lives and no matter the challenge, it can be overcome when you know someone is there and willing to help every step of the way
Yep too rite PL.

X3. well said Pointloader :y:

Really sad. Not just the young'uns that cop it either, divorces, disasters and even redundancies (of which there are far to many unnecessary these days) can sideswipe all ages. The tougher they are they harder they fall at times - reaching out to someone is harder I guess.

My condolences to the family and also to those of you who knew Sam - a terrible thing.

Thats a very sad news, met sam at the previous meet up, camped with Arnie near us, fished the whole morning with us with dolphins around, seemed like a very cool and happy chap, something must have gone very wrong so wont judje him for what he did. Rest in peace man :(
Enjoy every craft that can float, don't have one, have them all
