About this scrapbook page:
This page is in honour of my cousin James who took his own life on Father's Day weekend, 2002. His death has impacted my mother's family greatly and he is still missed SO much. All of the words on this page were taken from the Facebook Wall posts from his memorial group - after the 5th and 6th anniversaries of his passing.

** for the YELLOW RIBBON - HERE FOR LIFE challenge **

What a beautiful tribute page, and a profound loss. It is so hard to understand these things, in one so young, my heart cries every time I hear of this. My prayers are with his family.

Thank you for sharing James and your story and the love he still has. I can fathom it and the inability to let people who love you know. You are in such a dark place that the grief you cause your family isn't available, only pain. He loved you all and I know you love him, he is still around

What a great tribute page, the words and memories are so powerful. Your James, like my Kelly, gave no one a chance to see what he had in mind except for one small hint to his step-dad. Geeze do you ever quit missing them? Nope and that's why I'm never quiet about the topic of suicide, especially with young people! Thanks for sharing with us...
