I will admit that it was hard to revisit that morning, when I learned of my father’s suicide while standing in the middle of Whole Foods. But I am moved and incredibly honored to have the chance to tell my story out loud as part of this radio interview with Erika Lantz of NPR Boston’s Kind World series. It is my fervent prayer that my words have reached those strangers in one form or another. And I hope that through my voice, the voice of my friend Pam and the retelling of that dark morning, I can help to further humanize the truth of suicide loss and the pain that we, the survivors, must endure.
