Dear Friend,

Please don’t kill yourself.  Life is precious.  You are important to me.  I cannot begin to understand the pain that you must be going through.  But maybe I could or someone else could.  Maybe there are better days ahead for you.  Maybe this pain is only temporary.

How can I help?  What can I do?  Do you need a shoulder for crying or an ear for listening?  I have two of each.  If you go through with this without saying anything, I’ll wonder about the things that I could have done.  Please let me be a friend to you for years to come.


This letter is written to no one in particular.  It is a blanket statement of my desire to help those that I care about.  I would never want a friend to pass thinking they were alone.  You’re not alone unless you choose to be.
