On September 14th, 2014 our lives changed forever. Our 14 year old son killed himself in the early morning hours. There was no warning, no apparent depression, we never saw it coming. Arthur was funny, happy, sensitive to others and always helping someone. He was smart, loved to skateboard, play guitar and piano. He was a member of Amtgard, a live action role playing organization. He was a son, a brother and an uncle. There was no note left for us, he did not give away his possessions. Plans were made for that day and he even took silly selfies in the mirror just hours before. We had no clue that he was having thoughts of suicide.
So here we go… This is our life without Arthur.
