    Elwood, you know, I can’t either unless they are in such a state of depression and feel they have no purpose of living with no one to help or get them help to see them through..I dunno, but thankfully, he wasn’t able to succeed in his quest to end his own life! Maybe this was HIS cry for help? I feel with suicides when people really WANT to end their life, they let no one know and just do it…
