This is a kind of tragedy that has touched me personally.

When I was a Division officer, there was a suicide at one of our chapters.

The candlelight memorial ceremony in the parking lot at the house with the university and Greek Community was heart wrenching.

It was particularly difficult meeting the parents -- and when the chapter president asked me what to say.

How would I know?

I didn't understand.

The above is the opinion of the poster which may or may not be based in known facts and does not necessarily reflect the views of Delta Tau Delta or Greek Chat -- but it might.

What a sad situation for the Family and His Brothers.

One never knows what is in the mind of an individual as much it as is tried.

My Condolences go out to both, I am sure it is a trying time for all.

Ouch. I've had a friend commit suicide. It's a tough thing -- especially when there's absolutely no warning.
