Walter Curtis, RIP

Yesterday afternoon I attended a memorial service for a 21 year old who had decided that life had lost it’s meaning.

With tears flowing and bodies racked by pain, his parents stood side by side with Walter’s brothers and sister as hundreds of mourners came to share their grief and memories. Walter’s pain may have ended, but the sense of loss and bewilderment caused by his death will haunt his family and friends for decades to come.
