Default Former Wahmer back with sad news...

Hi Ladies...

I use to be a very active member of WAHM. I'm writing tonight with sad news.

I lost my 18 year old son 66 days ago (April 8th). To say my family is devastated is an understatement.

Zach ended his life.

I have started a <3 Friend of Zach <3 bracelet campaign in an effort to raise awareness for suicide prevention. You can read more about Zach here: *New* Friend of Zach (Jones) Bracelet Fundraiser Zachary Dylan Jones - Friend of Zach Bracelet Fundraiser [] - $1.00 : Little Diva Tutus, Trendy...From Tots to Teens!

You can also see the You Tube video we created in his memory in hopes of saving other lives. Please feel free to share it with people you know. The video link is here: YouTube - &#x202a;60 Days Later...&#x202c;&rlm;

Please know that by me mentioning his fundraiser, I am in no way implying that we would like donations. I use to be a very active member here and wanted to let my old WAHM friends know that we have lost our beloved Zach.

~Melissa

Hi Melissa.

I'm really sorry to hear about your son. Depression is a hard battle.

I am so sorry to hear this! My Dad committed suicide in 1982. It is still very painful. Sending up prayers for you and your family.

Melissa,

You and your whole family have been in my family's thoughts and prayers. I know my words of comfort are weak, but I want you to know we are here if you need anything at all!

May you all find comfort and peace in the love and memories Zach shared/made with you.
