My condolences to you and your husband, JerZ. I'm sure that when your husband walks in the door, the right words will magically come to you. And even if they don't, you can give him a giant hug.

In fact, here's a cyber-hug for you. I think you need one. ((((( )))))

All you really can do for your husband is to be there for him, hold him, sit with him, just be there. It's really sad...

The words will come out ...Hang in there...what a tragedy. 2 yrs ago my co-worker's son who was 15 took his life...to suicide..I didn't know what on Earth to say to her but was "there" for her.... My deepest sympathy to you and your husband.

What a terrible thing for your DH-as others have said just be there for him. He may express many different emotions as he works this out-sadness, anger, denial and more. Let the emotions flow and try to be understanding. The worst thing about a loved one's suicide is the "what if" and "should haves" people left behind do to themselves. Gently remind him the choice was his sisters and he can only hold his memories close.

Blessing to you both

Jerz, my condolences. I've been through this and know that it hurts the survivors far more than the person who leaves.

Just be strong - you and your husband will pull through it. Help each other.

Very sad. Sucks some people aren't mentally strong enough to deal with situations life throws at you.
