micbain it sounds like, given the situation, this goes somewhat beyond grief, to you perhaps blaming yourself. That's surely a tough one, no real words of wisdom but time still does heal. I had a similar situation this year with a close friend, not suicide exactly but a death that may have been preventable if someone who cared realized what was going on. One thing I find that is helping is doing the best I can now to be there for his family. Every circumstance is different of course, but one important point is that you prove yourself in the bad spots in life, not the easy stretches. If someday you look back and say, well, that was awful but I did my best, I think it does help.
