I have lost two to suicide — both in middle age. Both shot themselves. One was an estranged daughter we hadn’t seen nor heard from in 14 years. The other was a close friend who was more like a brother. I have told his story here on Medium in “A Last Goodbye.” Suicide is a tragedy no matter how it happens. I am very sorry you had to go through this. It is a grief like no other.
