Bad News

My youngest cousin Alex (25) has been having difficulties in his life, lost his job, his girlfriend and got into some trouble with the police.

Anyway it all must have gotten too much for him.

He shot himself in the head.

We dont know exactly when yet, they found him yesterday. His Dad and Brother-in-law are travelling up to his place in Texas from New Mexico to identify his body, and have him cremated before bringing his ashes home.

What a loss. My poor Auntie ...what she must be going through. Its just so hard to even think about.
