On A Personal Note

In Memorial
Samuel Montana D'Olimpio
January 24, 1990- February 2, 2005

On a personal note, today is very hard day for me. Four years ago today my little brother Sammy took his own life. I was and still am completely devastated. No a moment goes by that I don't think about him. He was greatly loved and always will be. He was the best man in my life. It still seems like a horrible nightmare and I keep hoping I wake up.  

A foundation has been set up in his name to prevent teen suicide and help those dealing with it. If you would like to donate please click read more. 

If you would like to donate please send it to:
The Sammy Montana Youth Foundation
9 Boxwood Dr
West Barnstable MA 02668

Checks can be made out to the foundation.

my heart goes out to you. this past september my 17 year-old brother attempted suicide ( our father took his own life 7 years before). it's so hard to know that someone you love hurts that much.
you are in my prayers.

from one sister to another

Dammit, first attempt got lost...

I remember reading about him in the CCT and wishing I knew how to contact you to offer my condolences, but we'd both left Borders behind and I didn't know how. Now I can, and I wish you only the happiest memories.
