    Elijah didn’t suffer from mental illness or suicidal thoughts that we were aware of. He was full of life, but did have a tad of anxiety...and visited an awesome psychologist several times to make sure he was dealing with teenage ups and downs ok.

    He was always encouraging everyone he came in contact with, and was nicknamed “The Great Encourager” when he was a little kid playing little league baseball. Countless little things like buying a yearly pass for $10 more dollars to Six Flags over Georgia the week before...showed he wasn’t suicidal. And NOONE ever heard him even discuss anything like that.

    The devil told Elijah a lie, through a girl he had a crush on...and in a horribly weak moment, he thought he was a burden on his friends and a piece of crap.

    It seems that that the biggest obstacle he faced, was to always lift everyone around him up...with a contagious smile that everyone loved...and thinking he was a burden to his friends (which couldn’t have been farther from the truth) ...was more than he could bear.

    Love everyone you can, encourage more than you should, and tell everyone that Jesus loves them.

    He's a good looking boy mate...Through our savior "its not goodbye, its see you later"... I pray your good days be such, and bad days, not so much mate..

    You are so right my friend( I hope you don't mind me saying my friend as we don't know each other) kindness and civility should be are daily routine. Your story touched me and reminded me that I need be patient and listen to everyone, because you never know when that one kind gesture may save a life or at the very least brighten someone's day. I am truly sorry for your loss.

    Teach them the truth, and let them sort thru the cobwebs of liberalism that have infested their minds.

    Butch, I'm only 4 hours away or seconds on the phone. Whatever you need that I can help with...I'm here for you. It was my privilege to meet and get to know Lij, even if only a little. My heart goes out to you and Melanie. May God hold you in his hands and soothe your grief.

    OK, I will, because death is hard, it is hard on everybody involved.
    I watched Hamlet, MacBeth, and A Midnight Summers Dream; and now I am a Shakespeare fan. I set out to fill my mind with classics, one way or the other.
    I read A Tale Of Two Cities, and Huckleberry Finn, and Jane Eyre; and watched Wuthering Heights, and Les Miserales, and The Time Machine. And now I am big fan of them.
