    There is no way you could have known of the deep sadness within your dear friend. My nephew also took his own life, and my sister has has still not recovered from the shock. The ones who are left always blame themselves. It is so sad.

    (((Hugs)))

    I am praying for Chelsea's family.

    I am so sorry to hear this sad news. It is always heartbreaking when someone we care about decides to take their own life. Many prayers and thoughts to you and Chelsea's family.

    I am so sorry! Many hugs and prayers to you and her family. Just please try to remember (and I hope the family knows this also) it is not anyones fault! It is way to easy to point fingers or feel that it was your (or the familys) fault. Or feel like you should have seen the sings and the reason she did this... No one will most likely ever know. This is something I know all to well (My best friend in high school... She will forever be 17). HUGS

    It is so horriable when some one takes their own life. Those that are left never understand. My prayers and thought are with both you and your family and Chelsea's.

    I am so very sorry. This touches me very close, but I still do not understand. :( Prayers for her family and friends coming that way.

    Thank you all for your prayers and kind words. Chelsea's family has decided to cremate her - ashes will be split between her mom and dad as they are divorced. There will be a memorial for her on Saturday. Mandy, the lady who found Chelsea, is really having a difficult time - as to be expected. She went up to work yesterday to fill everyone in on the arrangements being made for Chelsea (she's helping the family with it), but she just wasn't handling it well.

    Thank you again! :)

    Unfortunately its the people left behind to pick up the pieces and wonder why that end up blaming themselves. Its no ones fault, we may never have the answers but you have to be there for each other. My condolences to you all though this difficult time.
