      You are most welcome. This was a beautiful piece of writing. I have a friend who lost two siblings to suicide in their early twenties. One was diagnosed Bipolar. My friend had her world rocked by more then one severe bout with depression. It is all such a combination of nature and nurture, not nature versus nurture.
