So sorry for your shocking loss.
We've all known people who commit suicide, and you need to understand that if you could have prevented it, you would have. People who are troubled enough to commit suicide are VERY GOOD at hiding their true emotions, and they are not capable of understanding what their actions will do to those around them.
Go ahead and feel angry, or sad or whatever feels right to you.

You're doing everything right. I admire your strength and the ability to understand that later is a better time to figure out what really happened.

Is the family out west with you or back east?

Thank you so very much. These responses mean a lot to me.

Pirategirl, they're all out here, which is good, because this way we can all cling together and just sort of support each other.

JerZ - continued prayers for your husband and family. I found an essay that I sincerely hope will in some way comfort you. I will post the beginning only, but also provide the link for the entire thing so as to not violate the TOS here: Tell Me More - Hungry? Thirsty? Empty? (http://www.tell-me-more.org/feature.php?ID=5 - broken link)

Imagine you are standing on a seashore. A sailing ship is at your side spreading her white sails to the morning breeze as she sets sail for the ocean. The ship looks beautiful and strong. You watch her until eventually she seems like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky meet each other. Someone at your side says, "There, she's gone".

But where has she gone? Gone from your sight, that's all. She is just a large mast and hull as she was when she left the shore. She is still carrying her load of living weights to its destination. Just at the moment when someone says, "She's gone"; another voice on a distant shore shouts "Here she comes!"
