I lost my husband Jerry to suicide on 12.31.2019. Although he struggled with issues, I never thought that this would have been an option. He was my best friend and partner for life.

My second son has dealt with mental health issues and this was where our main focus was on him not my husbands. I want to be an advocate on these trying times that are amongst us. We need to focus hard on "everyone's" mental health and look forward to a bright and wonderful future.
