Thomas Walter Weston took the coward's way out by offing himself.

What a f'ing scumbag!

You never know why people do the things they do. But I can assure you. He was suffering long before he died. Although people read the paper and draw their owns conclusion no one can wear another man's shoes. And for that I hope this never happens to anyone you love or even yourself. I would of never imagined this ever. For what its worth. He was one of the kindest people I have known

He was an unkind and selfish person; look at the pain he caused everyone else. Quit calling people The Victim of a Suicide; the victim(s) are those left behind!

I am a victim . He left me behind and don't think for a minute, that I don't think about him, miss him and
mourne him everyday.. and I have a million questions and wished he would of answered my call . but he didn't. He was sick and was a victim of abuse from childhood . Something he was never able to get over. So compassion should be the way we ALL treat one another NOT judgement.. be grateful that you haven't been brutally victimized by someone and if you have. Thank God you were able to get passed it. No one called him a victim regarding the suicide but the truth is the suicide is a result of trauma. Ask someone who has attempted suicide you may be surprised what they have to say. The sad thing is that no one should have to defend the reason that someone killed them self to a stranger who doesn't have the facts or a clue.

You seem to know quite a bit about his "problems". Why didn't you or any other family members get him some help if you knew he was that jacked up?

Wow how platitudinous. Perhaps educating oneself regarding suicide/depression would be more insightful and would recognize that as offensive. Ignorance doesn't give one a free pass for insensitivity. The question you presented doesn't deserve a dignified response.

the POS poser, Emjoe's middle name is "Platitude." Here at the town Veterans Center, when someone needs to make a head call, they say, "I've got to go take an EMJOE."

Well, that may be true. When I was in Vietnam...I remember cleaning out the buckets of crap from the heads; it was my main job. During one such job, a Viet Cong guerrilla pushed out a turd onto the street near my First Sergeant. Thinking it was a grenade and wanting a Medal of Honor, I dove on it yelling "I'll save you!"

All I got was an Article 15 for spreading feces on my uniform. The guy I thought was Viet Cong was our interpreter.

Yup, when I was in Vietnam, Rambo was me.

You have no idea what you are talking about and stop posting insensitive comments. There are many that are hurting over his loss and yes, he was selfish in taking his own life, but those that knew him know how kind he was and that he was hurting. So quit your insensitivity.
