My Baby's Suicide
by Kathy Schulz
My youngest son, my baby, went home after drinking for more than 12 hours, he was an alcoholic, and put a belt around his neck, attached to the shelf in his closet, went to his knees, he was 6'7", and took his own life. The day the sheriff's office showed up at my house to inform me, half of my heart was ripped out and no one nor nothing can replace that half. My son, Martin Allen Schulz was 28 years, 10 months, and 10 days old and now he would be 30. I have gone on with my life, but not a moment goes by I don't think about Marty, not all sad thoughts, but thoughts none the less. When your child chooses to end their own life, the guilt for not recognizing symptoms and doing something to help them, is the worst.
