A friend lost but never forgot.

Steven B. Davis was born in Dallas, Texas on October 21st 1957. He passed away on March 25th, 2006 while suffering from severe depression. Steve took his own life and will be missed by all who knew and loved him. He spent the last eight and 1/2 years with my family and told me often how much he loved us and that he was happier here with us, than at any other time in his life. He was Father to my three son's and grandfather to my grandchildren. He was always fair and honest and treated my sons as if they were flesh and blood. They have nothing but good loving memories of him and miss him terribly, as do I. Steve was the best mechanic you could ever hope to find. He was honest in his dealings with customers. In all the time I knew Steve he never told me a lie. He was a loving and giving man. He was my best friend! Although we had our differences in the middle of March and things had been difficult the past two years of our relationship, I still loved and respected him. I will forever miss him and no one can take away from me, what we felt for each other. Since his death I have heard rumors and speculation as to why he took his life and most were aimed at me. They hurt only because they are untrue . Steve knew my feelings as well as I do and, I know he loved me. No one can take that away! I will miss him and grieve for him. My sorrow is that he didn't enjoy a better and happier life while on this earth. Life will go on and insinuations, blame, and rumors will fade but the memories I have of him will last me a lifetime. I am proud to have known and loved him and shared that portion of my life with him. He is greatly missed!  I layed him to rest next to his mother. I know Steve would have wanted that. So rest in peace untill we meet again...............

I have stayed quiet for too long! Steven was my husband for 19 years, the father to my girls, and quite happy before Tina came into our lives.
She "needed him" he said. I am still very sad over his death. Tina said she would be with him someday and now she is.
Tina M. Clark too has committed suicide. She is now dead. I thought readers might want to know that.

On May 9th 2006 we lost our beloved Son ( in-law) Bill Wilson. He took his own life because of financial pressures.These could have been solved. His wife our youngest daughter gentle injured bewildered puzzled grief stricken Sharon Teresa Esttelle Wilson with her two Children Sophie 19 & Chris 23 are wandering in the wilderness with sorrow.But Sharon rang her Dad last night !! -that's me (Peter Yeates) and said " Dad I have found the Perfect Poem" -by Tina M Clark who has told us through her words of her pain and sorrow-the whole teven Davis story which was just the same for our Bill Wilson-We don't think Bill wanted to go-he wanted to stay !! It was a glitch in a lower than usual day-when he seemed 'cornered' the credit card Comapnies pressure was mounting cruelly and relentlessly as they fined after fined for late payment-The Bank Current account limit was reached-but there was a way out-we could have got him through it-but Bill was private- Bill had has his hair cut that day-ready to go on a business trip-he knew that Sharon knew his secrets and his worries-but he was a private-close person- strong in appearance-proud in demeanour-We that is Sharon's Dad & Mum ( Brenda were off in France for a short holiday-I knew there was something impending-but did not know what-his talk his words seemed normal and without anxiety-
But now we want Tina to know that this Poem written for Steven was in some written for our Bill-everything Tina wrote applied to Bill-yes there were difficulties as Sharon found Bill became even more quiet- how he would edge towards asking for help-but we hesitated not knowing if help-to this private and quiet and proud man was something he wanted.I did not go boldly where I might have done if I had been stronger.
So thank you for those words Tina-they add to our seeking to find the answers-our stumbling along this deserted path in a civilisation that does not want to face death -because it is too uncomfortable to taklk of passing away and death-and which reminds people who are happy how everything is so temporary-and how really death is so much part of life-but they don't want to hear- they avoid the talk-it might happen to them-but so many think-other people's lives-it won't happen to them-it did happen to us-it will continue to happen to us-because Brenda is 71 and I am 70 so we have had our three score years and ten-but we have found this blow the hardest to bear-but Tina's Poem helped-helped to understand-helped to cope-just a little -helped to reach out and up-
Now we intend to do what we can to try and get the finance companies and the credit card companies to look at an individuals total outstanding debts and help before it is to late-they have the systems-they choose not to use them-we are going to change that-starting now !
God Bless
Peter & Brenda Yeates-Sharon Teres Estelle Wilson-Christopher and Sophie and Bill's beloved dogs Mia & Shadow who pine everyday as we do !

It is always hard when we know someone who dies; but to commit suicide is unthinkable and hard to comprehend. I am so sorry for your loss; God be with you (and Steven's family) during this time of difficulty and incomprehensible sadness; you are in my prayers!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :( >tears <

Oops, I Lost my Sense of Humor by Lois Santalo

Death came for me in 2001 in the form of pancreatic cancer. Doctors advised against surgery due to my age--but I felt that even an extra year or two is worth fighting and suffering..
