Georgia

My darling niece. It is hard to say this. She is gone. Our family is in shock over the sudden loss. Georgia’s anguish was too much for her to bear and she decided to end her time on Earth. She was a fun loving, vibrant, and caring girl. This is evident in her pictures. The few hours I spent with Georgia is worth a lifetime. Perhaps because I am a mother, I feel her loss more than my mother’s, who passed in October 2018. Georgia and her brother, Benjamin were very close and, I feel for him too. So many young lives are lost to suicide. We do our best; unfortunately, not all can be saved. Georgia is at peace now. Having these pictures helps me to treasure her memory.

Her uncle Marc wrote: “To paraphrase Elton John, ‘How wonderful when Georgia was in this world.’ Now there is a wound in my heart that will take a long time to heal.”

    Sorry Sherry that i have to miss her! Also am sorry that no one close to her that she was depressed, and had lost her way in life. What a great tribute you’re giving her in posting all her images throughout her life. She was a beautiful girl – what a loss.

      She was seeing a professional about her depression. Sometimes that is not enough. Thank you for your sympathy.

        Since I was a professional who helped people with depression. Suicide is a very tricky thing, especially with teens. Their moods can change within a minute, and there is no stopping then, when in-between sessions. The hardest is to accept that they took the decision that life is not worth living, because it is such a lie.Take care, Sherry.

    Heartbreaking. Such a beautiful life that had much more to live. Your photo collage shows a sensitive girl who thought deeply. I don’t know the circumstances, but hope that you and the family can find a way through this devastating grief. There are always options and we need to encourage more services to help young people find them. Hugs to you all.

    She is stunning! I’m so sorry for your loss. It’s hard to imagine someone choosing to leave this world, but we just never know what someone goes through on the inside. Sometimes life can be so unbearably painful that shedding the human skin and leaving for a better place is the only option. I am sending you all my love and comforting energy. What a beautiful niece you had, dear Sherry. 💖 I’m so sorry she is no longer with us.

    Dear Sherry I am very sad for the loss of your niece. I would imagine her anguish as you said must have been unbearable. I am sad for you and for all who knew and loved her. I thought Marc’s words paraphrasing Elton John were particularly beautiful as they speak so elegantly of the joy and sorrow. Lots of love to you and your family. Linda
