My deep sadness for my fellow class mate and high school friend. It’s never to late to reach out for help God is got him now

1 month ago

I did not know him, but I am touched by his story and so many like him. He was more than his last moments. A son, whose mother and father decorated his nursery and bought first day of school clothes for. A brother, who had countless hours of laughs and inside jokes with his siblings. A father, who taught his son how to throw a baseball and beamed with pride as his daughter presented her first missing tooth. He had dreams, goals, aspirations, fears, favorite foods, things he looked forward to, perhaps a favorite sports team or movie he loved to rewatch. Depression can affect anyone, no matter their age, gender, economic situation, political affiliation, etc. And those suffering, those who perish, are more than their illness and more than their final moments. They are your family, your friends, the person you pass on the street, the woman checking you out at the store, the man on the TV giving you the news. It’s so important to be compassionate and see the world with humility. This disease cannot be defeated alone, but through the empathy of each of us, everyone touched by his story. Troy, I am so saddened about your passing. My greatest condolences to your family and everyone who loved you. Sending love from New Jersey.

Dear Mr. Brown,
You took the world by storm. You had all of us from the beginning… if you only could have known. Your life was not in vain. You have left a message of hope, and may in turn, have saved the life of another. Sir, thank you for your service to this country. To your family and friends, I give you my sincerest and deepest condolences. Be awake in peace Mr. Brown, as off you go into the wild blue yonder. ?️✈️

If you look at the sunrise in that video, it looks as if he couldn’t take the pain of this world anymore & was driving into the beautiful Pearly Gates of Heaven, where the Lord says there shall be no more pain & no more suffering.

To the family- I’m sorry for your loss. In my opinion, your son is a HERO around the WORLD & sacrificed his own life, so that others that are suffering silently could hopefully get the help, that he wasn’t able to. Your son is a HERO and is now in no more pain.

Troy’s family- I never knew Troy, but whenever you shed tears & miss him, please remember the unlimited amount of lives he has touched & potentially saved, around the WORLD.

Sending love and light to your family and loved ones from South Africa. Your story has touched so many. I lost a brother to suicide and one can never know what happens in those final moments that lead you to the end. Just know you were loved, are loved, and will never stop being missed.
