For those who don’t have FB, can someone paste the text?
I’m assuming this is John Gray the ultra runner. He’d been tearing it up lately, so this is mind boggling for those who don’t suffer from depression. Suicide is very sad (and for some, infuriating) no matter the person’s age or reasons.
As others have said, if you’re contemplating suicide (even a tiny bit) talk to someone. Anyone. Even a stranger.
Today will be the hardest day of my life. There is an amazing person who I love, my best friend, my inspiration. My running partner. My partner in crime. I was made whole by this person as we did everything together. I will be half the person I was when I woke up this morning. I will not know how to function without being able to call you, to talk to you. You elevated everyone around you to care more, run faster and live life to the fullest. You were strong and passionate. I hope that where ever you end up, it is filled with endless trails and good friends. This is not goodbye as I will see you again running, playing video games and smiling wherever I go.
My brother Jon Grey ended his life today and lost his battle with his depression.
