We're all reeling from the news that our son's first serious girlfriend (from A level years 14 years ago) committed suicide yesterday. We saw her a few years ago at a wedding and she remained in our son's circle of friends. He was at her house-warming party a few months ago. I was actually going to suggest that our son broach being her lodger as he might have had more chance of work where she lived and I harboured a hope that they might get back together. I decided not to meddle. I wish I had now as there would have been someone there when she was feeling so down.
