    I am so sorry for what happened to you and your family, Sherente. I have seen others who were good family men, good fathers and the same happened. Many times depression was involved, sometimes there had been a loss of some sort but many times it was depression alone. But there have also been some where there didn’t seem to be any explanation.
    My prayers are for healing for your family, though that will take time.
