I'm sure that's not it. Probably lost his income and more.
Very sorry to hear this my friend.

I'm sorry for your loss and will pray for the man's family.

That makes more sense.
This whole pandemic, and even more the reaction to it, has created so many problems.
"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."
-- Justice Janice Rogers Brown

Thanks everyone. I'll know more later but I believe COVID ruined his business.
"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012
"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."
Charles Triplett O’Ferrall of Virginia - In Congress, May 1, 1888
Wow! That's a tough one. My condolences, Artie.
"If you’re a leader, you lead the way. Not just on the easy ones; you take the tough ones too…” – MAJ Richard D. Winters (1918-2011), E Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne
"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24
|Woke up today..|
Sorry to hear! My condolences sent. Unfortunately I think there will be more that take this route after their life businesses have been ruined by the shutdown.

I'm confused by this as well. It doesn't jive as sarcasm with the request for not responding with the standard cliches.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.
Sorry to hear the sad news. Try to stay positive, don't let it drag you down as well.
Had an acquaintance do the same thing on Tuesday. He unfortunately shot himself and the family found him.
|Plowing straight ahead come what may|
Prayers and good thoughts to both you and his family at this tragedy...sadly from doing a little research this is more and more common in this day and time ...please, if you are feeling that all this shit is getting to heavy to cope with please reach out to family and friends...remember Spector from a few years ago and how Sigforum helped him over a dark spot in his life...REACH OUT!
"we've gotta roll with the punches, learn to play all of our hunches
Making the best of what ever comes our way
Forget that blind ambition and learn to trust your intuition
Plowing straight ahead come what may
And theres a cowboy in the jungle"
|It's not easy being me|
Artie, condolences sent to you and to his family.

People who are fortunate enough to have not struggled with depression have NO IDEA how hard it can be. For many, it is the beast forever lurking at the door, waiting for that door to crack just a little so it can come in and consume the victim. Depression takes away a person's sense of hope. It convinces them there is no way out; no way life can ever get better; and convinces the victim there is no other way to escape the pain (and believe me, depression hurts worse than any physical injury).
The responses to this pandemic have shut down businesses, ruined people financially, and isolated many people who desperately need social interaction with others.
Reading the Covid thread, suicide hotline calls are up 600%.
Sorry for your loss, Artie. I don't have the words to express my sympathy.
No arsenal is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.
My condolences. I believe this is occurring quite often but is under reported.

So sorry to hear this.
I will say a prayer this evening.
I'm sorry to hear this Art.
That is brutal Artie. My sincere condolences.
“Our actions may be impeded...
But there can be no impeding our intentions or our dispositions. Because we can accommodate and adapt. The mind adapts and converts to its own purposes the obstacle to our acting.
The impeding to action advances action.
What stands in the way becomes the way.”
― Marcus Aurelius
I'm so sorry to hear of this tragedy.
I'll pray for your friend, that he may be at peace, and for you and his loved ones, tgat you may be comforted.
Runnin' and gunnin' (slowly..)
|Frangas non Flectes|
I’m so sorry, Artie. Like Hound Dog, I’m also lacking adequate words.
This is the first thing I thought of. Artie’s friend is a victim of this lockdown, and sadly, I think there will be many more before we get back to any semblance of normalcy.
|Cogito Ergo Sum|
So sorry to hear of your loss.
|Rumors of my death|
are greatly exaggerated
So sorry to hear. Prayers for all.
