RIP Gauge

On October 29, a friends young son took his own life. He was just 14 years old. I am not going to write a lot here as words seem inadequate. I have no idea what his mother, father and little brother must be going through at this time. Please take a moment and put them in your prayers and thoughts.

Gauge Barnes obituary is here.

His online condolences and tributes can be found here.
A memorial video for him is here on YouTube.


  1. How heartbreaking. Several years ago my oldest bother took his own life - it is the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with. This family will be in my prayers - I know they have such a long road ahead of them. I am so sorry for their loss!!!

  2. If I wouldve posted today, it was going to be about the incident of kids ages 10 to 15 committing suicide. It has increased almost tenfold in the past few years and we are going to lots of trainings about it lately. Its so horrible and I can't possibly even begin to imagine what it must be like to deal with.

    I'm so sorry for the loss of such a young boy.
