A friend took his life this evening. [livejournal.com profile] mountain_hiker had been very troubled with several legal and emotional challenges before him. I don't agree with his choice, but I hope he is at peace.

I'm getting awfully tired of burying friends.

When? How did you find out?

I called Jim this evening.

A few of us received a suicide text message last night. He has had some rough events that weren't posted on lj, with exception of a locked private post. We are trying (per his wishes) to get that post unlocked.

He was found this morning, still alive, but was in critical condition. He was on life support, and pronounced brain dead at about 12:30 mdt today. At least that is when we were notified by the medical team. He was a registered organ donor, so his organs were harvested.

After I spoke to Jim on the phone, I found out through a mutual friend that his father is planning a memorial service. Another gathering will be held with his mountaineering friends. I will post that information on my lj as it becomes available, but I will email Jim as well. Both services will likely be in Colorado.

Thanks for sharing the details. Terry was one of my oldest LJ friends and I corresponded privately with him at lot over the years. This is devastating.

I am sorry for your loss. I wish I had more to offer than words.

Well. Fuck. I always enjoyed talking with him.
