All sympathy to his family, friends, and colleagues.

My heart goes out to his family and friends. It is hard to come to terms with this sort of tragedy, I know that my brother has not yet overcome ours.

... and twenty three years ago, my beloved sister, whose birthday would have been today. March 19.

Prayers for Mottram family.

Suicide is very sad. I can only imagine how much he must have been suffering inside to do this.
