Hi, I'm new hear, and this is my first post. My wonderful clinician recommended this forum to share, learn, and support. My 83 year old father completed suicide May 27th. He had some health issues, but being aware his memory and cognitive thought was rapidly deteriorating due to dementia was what I believe was the final straw, along with indications from the note he left. My sister and I were on a walk. We heard the gunshot, but we were not aware whatit was until we returned to the backyard to find my father had laid down by the garden and shot himself in the forehead with his service weapon. This is why I'm here.
