Default serious post: My really good friends brother just commited suicide

I have no clue what to say. This is so [censored] up, she found out this morning and I just found out about it a few hours ago. He was 25, her oldest brother. I really don't know what to do or what to say to her. Any advice is appreciated. thanks.

Unfortunately I've been in this type of situation too many times. You're best thing to do is just be there for your friend. I've seen people deal with this in many different ways... Getting hammered, Beating the [censored] out of something, Crying, Keeping it inside. I'd do my best to keep her away from the booze over the next few months though... A friend of mine committed suicide last spring, and about 6 weeks ago his sister finally became a drunken wreck and lost it... She was civilly committed to an institution and just recently got out. Let me know if there's anything I can help you with.

Part of my struggles with the fact that she is like the sweetest nicest girl I know and all of a sudden this happens. The other part of me is angry because I don't understand suicide at all, I mean my biggest fear is death, I just have never understood why someone would do it to themselves. [censored]

I think having to listen to a million people tell you "Im so sorry" would be exhausting.
