All you could say was...stupid?? Do you know how unconscious you have to be to make a shallow remark like that when a child (teenager) is in so much pain that for whatever reason they can no longer bear to live with their pain and take their own life?? Are you so dead and hardened inside that you feel no compassion. I don't know the story but it saddens me.
It was'nt a slow suicide like drugs, drinking or smoking or eating yourself into a heart attack like most "stupid" unconscious people..like you..covering up your miserable existence..
Now this...take notes!! is what a conscious human being from the human race would make as their comment:
"My prayers are with the family and may God in His infinite wisdom show grace and mercy on this young soul" and soften the hearts of those who stand in judgement. May the family and friends find peace and may we all learn to live in unconditional love...one heart at a time.

Namaste

I dont know who you are but hear me out. Have you ever felt so depressed and mad at the world well I can say I have. I have thought of suicide since the age of 14 because I was a victim of a crime. You cant deny that you have never thought of taking your life and end your sufferment. Like you say that your father killed himself well guess what the father of this kid died the same way as he did aint that some shit. I know it hurts you and it makes you angry that your dad left you so dont give me that shit. All you can do is fight the obsticles that comeyour way. Besides this kid was on drugs and he wasnt thinking straight you would only know how drugs change you if you tried them or you have seen someone under drugs. I feel bad because my brother is the same age 16 and they were friends so dont critisize the dead because thats very disrespectful.

I understand but this kid had messed up parents and if we are talking about the kid I knowhewas raised by his grand parents and taken to the wrong areas by her ownmother so we cantgudge hisdesicion but only the way that he had to grow up.

That stupid kid was one of my close friends. Maybe one day you'll feel the pain of losing a friend through something tragic. Maybe then will you think twice about calling a deceased loved one as stupid. You don't know his story so don't try and judge him with a word as ignorant and blatant like stupid. That's funny because the people calling him stupid are from CORONA, I DARE YOU to come to my neighborhood and call my deceased friend stupid. Wow, may god be with you guys... And to my friend.... REST IN PEACE. We Miss You And Love You.

I had the privilege to be his neighbor. And I wanted to make sure that everyone knows before judging or posting hurtful comments, that this kid was an amazing individual. Very caring, respectful of his parents, great protector of his siblings good neighbor didn't get in trouble an not even a hair of stupidity. He was very smart, ambitious had his future planned out. Kneew what he wanted. He was blessEd with great caring encouraging parents, good people . this can happen to anyone. don't be so cold instead of waisting you're time gather all of your friends and light candles and bring flower. Showing his family support and compassion.
