Timothy Michael Rem was my beautiful, bright, funny, charming and loving cousin whose smile could light up a room. We lost him far too young to suicide, at the age of 25, June 14, 2010.
Yesterday in Saratoga, I joined my family members for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s annual Out of the Darkness walk. I have participated in many charity walks that raise awareness and funds for education, prevention, research and support, but it is not until you are surrounded by thousands of people at one of these walks, that you are able to fully grasp just how many lives are affected.
Timmy, journey on… you are being carried on great winds across the sky.
