I know exactly the feeling with this. Most here know I work in a branch of law enforcement and a few years back one of my coworkers killed himself. Several things were happening with him at the time, but the funeral attendance was incredible. The procession was filled with a mix of family, friends, and police cars. In full motion I wouldn't be surprised if it were 3 or 4 miles long. People arrived at the cemetary while others were still waiting at the funeral home.
While I am one to believe that suicide is a completely selfish way to go, I have not been in a situation bad enough personally that it would even be a consideration. While I can't comment directly in his situation, I do hope his immediate family as well as his audio family learns to cope with the loss of him. I hope he has found better places and one that he can continue to amaze people with his straight to the point chat as well as his absurd and brilliant ideas. I rarely laugh out loud reading forum chat, but clearly remember when I saw his nearly 100 cubic feet of sub enclosures paired with what were most likely 2" full range satellite speakers.
