What he said. I'm not going to get into it much, but my family had something similar happen some months back. There was definitely that "how could you do this to us" kind of anger involved, but my wife also made the point that for the guy who shot himself, it was inarguably the worst day of his life.

It's also worth remembering that there's not really a right or wrong way to mourn, especially in a situation this fucked up. Anyone who says otherwise might have watched too many movies.

I, on the other hand, cried for the first time today at the viewing. His father is taking it real hard, and it's tough to see someone in that much pain.
