    That's awful.

    Perhaps I'm being too sensitive but I don't like the use of the word demise there. Not like he declared bankruptcy or something.

    That’s actually the proper usage. Definition #1 is a person’s death.

    Demise seems harsh because of the way we use the word, but it is the literal definition of the word. "A persons death."

    Edit: Tegg'd

    “Death” is a more blunt/less sensitive way of saying it. Seems odd that people take issue with the proper use of a word because people often use it improperly.

    Ugh, that's terrible. Going to be a really tough time for anyone that was close to him. I dealt with this twice and it was such a dark time for me. Always thinking if I could have done something different, how did I not see it, etc. Hope they get those kids people to talk to.

    Yeah, I guess it just felt off to me in that situation. As noted above, maybe I'm just so accustomed to seeing it used improperly that it struck me as odd.

    It can’t be said enough.

    We talk a lot of shit in here, but don’t be afraid to reach out. If somebody reaches out to you, listen.

    Don’t ever be the guy to not try to help, even if that means to pass them on to somebody that can do a better job. Please don’t ever be a dick about the situation, depression is real and it’s brutal. You aren’t helping anybody being a macho asshole.

    Sadly, success can be just as scary as failure for some people. Expectations and pressure.

    I guess. Suicide obviously isn't race-based. This isn't about this, though, so I'll certainly drop it.

    One of the toughest parts about dealing with depression is that people with it are usually very good at putting on a face when they're in social situations. Often times hard to have any inkling unless youre close with them and sometimes not even then. Sucks.

    Extremely sad. Saw a tweet about how he walked his mom back to her hotel after a 3 OT win that he led his team to and he was so happy.

    Life is hard sometimes. Reach out to friends/family if you're having dark thoughts.

    RIP :(
