Death of an acquaintance

Someone I know committed suicide this afternoon.

I only barely knew him.  I saw him regularly when he came to my workplace as a customer. 

He was a familiar fixture in my workplace. 

Cranky, ornery, grumbling old man in his 70's. 

But that cranky old man shared his monthly food box with us.....

and donated many popular items we have available for customers to use...

It might surprise some people in our community to know that he will be missed here.

It always makes me pause, when I learn someone in my community has committed suicide.

To me, it almost feels like I've lost a fellow soldier in the fight. 

Another soul lost in the battle against the darkness.

Another light snuffed out by despair and hopelessness.

I feel like all I can do is remember, and keep fighting.
