Show some compassion if this is true, why don't you think of his or her family and what they are going thir this evening. Maybe say prayer for them instead of calling them stupid or dumb. J/s

Yes, but not sure about the last name. Has a sister named Raven Oberbeck. Please, pray for the family as we do not know what all happened. It is tragic and a horrible thing. God Bless his soul and his family.

The child was NOT playing Russian Roulette. Why dont you stop spreading rumors and realize this child was in pain and have empathy and sympathy?

My little brother was not playing Russian roulette, he committed suicide. for anyone who has decided that they would like to spread rumors, you have no idea how bad it hurts. my family and i are in grief at this time. i ask everyone who does not know the truth to shut the hell up. he was a little kid with unknown problems. i will not stand by and let anyone bash my brothers name and lie. and by the way the gun was not made to play such a stupid game. my brother is not stupid, it was selfish, yes. he will always be in my heart and never forgotten. Remember if you do not know the truth you might want to shut up because rumors like that will bite you in the ass. i thank each and everyone one of you for your prayer and thoughts.Thank you for standing up for my brother Brandon. Rest in peace little brother i will miss you always.

I am so sorry for your loss. While many do not understand suicide and say this and that, it is obvious they have never been where your brother or others have been. I really wish I could get others to understand what is going on inside the thought process and feelings. And no matter what, those who say if he really loved you he would not have done this and THAT is NOT the case. Don't mind those who have no insight of what it is like. When a person is in a state of mind like he was, they do not think it is selfish, just the opposite. The fact is the mental health system around here sucks, it is broke, and no one wants to help those in need. Keep your chin high, smile and know he loved you.

Raven, my heart goes out to you and your family, I can say no words will help at this time but please know that their are some of us that know exactly what u are going thur I do know cuz about 16 yrs ago I went through this so when I say my heart breaks for you I mean it. It will become easier in time and maybe you might understand more but just know you have a lot of support and prayers coming ur way. God bless you and you family. May you brother RIP now.

Not the fault of the "mental health system around here".

It is disheartening to see someone hurt bad enough to take their own life,....and a thousand times so when that person is a child. My thoughts and prayers go out to this child's family and loved ones left behind. He will never be forgotten by his loved ones,..but I hope they find at least some peace and solace in their loss as time goes on.

The reality is that we don't forget, move on, and have closure, but rather we honor, we remember, and incorporate our deceased children and siblings into our lives in a new way. In fact, keeping memories of your loved one alive in your mind and heart is an important part of your healing journey. Harriet Schiff
