When most hear the term Black Friday, many think of this being the semi-official first shopping day of the holiday season. For me, Black Friday has a second meaning…a year ago Black Friday, my friend Christine died by suicide.

I can’t help but think about bipolar conditions and Kelly Moyer’s message on how to treat our peers in community. And, of course, I can’t help thinking of the importance of family.

If there is a hereafter — a heaven for kind, loving, and thoughtful souls — I’m sure Christine is there.

She’s in my thoughts today, and my thoughts for her are warm remembrances.

May she rest ever peacefully.
