Members joomer Posted February 25, 2008 Members Report Share Posted February 25, 2008 In 1992 my family moved to new town and there I met this wonderful man with his family. He was my dad's age and became a very good family friend, I kind of forged a special bond with him as I dated his daughter for a while. He became my mentor and helped me a lot especially regarding my anger issues - taught me how to control my anger and so forth.After I graduated from high school, I started helping him out anytime I wasn't in college and would learn from him how to do carpentry (he was a carpenter by trade). I spent more time with him than how I spent with my dad ( I respect my dad but I bonded with this man better). A few years later I left my native country but always kept in touch with him and his family. That is until November last year, I couldn't reach him whenever I called. Yesterday while I was at Church, my dad called me and left a message on my voicemail. When leaving Church, I listed to the message just to hear that my friend and mentor and his wife were dead.When I asked more questions, I realized that he had killed his wife then committed suicide - the voicemail left me in a shock, but the information left me angry. Angry at him and angry at myself. His daughter (my ex) has been left to take care of siblings, I really wanted to call and console her, but I don't know what to tell her. Every time I start dialing her number I get so angry and stop.How do I deal with this situation? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
