Heartbreaking Jack. The very worst time possible and I am so sorry for you and Devon. I can’t and don’t want to imagine the pain. My son panicked a couple of months ago because he was afraid he would hurt himself. Thankfully his father took him to hospital. My mother and her mother had a terrible history of contemplating the end. Not sure Ray is aware. I’ve even thought of it. Losing one of my children is unbearable. I am so extremely sorry Jack. I wish I could help with your pain. Please forgive me for telling some of our story. It is a fear always with me . Love to you and all who miss Dillon so very much. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Sheila
