I wonder if anyone will write an article that delves into how someone who finds a suicide victim with a bullet wound to the head is affected mentally for the rest our their life.

Larry was talented, loved, surrounded by family and friends. He sought help for his depression and still killed himself. Many others who don't have the talent or the support do so as well even when "the system" is aware of their trouble. That is one of those dark under reported areas of our society that Larry would have delved into. What will the Star Tribune do? Larry's family had the courage to allow the truth to be told. The opportunity to bring about positive change should not be lost.
