Memorial page to my son

My son son Michael T. Bond was born May 24 1970 and he died by commiting suicide on 7-5-1996. I truly believe he's in heaven with God and he's
missed by everyone that loved him, by those that
he touched during his short life.
His suicide broke the hearts of those that he left behind him who can't understand why he did it and a son that is having many problems
because of his decision to take his life
Anyone thinking of commiting suicide to end problems that they are having or that knows of someone who is should help them see all
the blessings they may have
that they do not count that many have never had on this page
"The times that I'll miss" are lyrics I wrote for my son and to hear the song that
came from lyrics that are on page above click here
To hear song that I wrote about someone who committed suicide that can't be heard on any other internet site is about what they should have done is
"If they had asked for help"
Michael was a son that I loved and was proud of, I only wish that I had told him these things more than I did. It is only when you lose something in your
life that you really find out what is important. I could've had more memories, he would have heard what I had felt if I told him, I loved him more often.
His mother and I divorced before his birth and she remarried again. This is reason for his last name being Bond. I missed so much in his life before he died
and I've wished many times since he died.. that.. I could have done things while he was alive that I didn't do
In life, we will all have sad days or problems that we have to face and on the day Michael died, it was one of my sad days. I saw him two days before
his suicide and got no indication he had problems.
He laughed and joked and told me, he wanted to start spending more time with me and was checking out truck driving jobs in local area where I lived. He
had a son he loved in pictures and I can't think of any reasons why that he would commit suicide.
Michael was loving and giving to all who knew him during his life he liked to make people laugh and pulling pranks when he could. He always was always
enjoyed a good laugh and was always happy on the outside. He touched so many in his short life with his positive attitude and his strong faith in God.
He often said he'd like to be a minister and help others and
like most divoiced parents, things in my personal life conflicted with all the times we might have spent together. Times he had wanted to come visit me,
if said I was busy or had plans, he'd said, "I understand".
It's too late to do what I could've done, God blessed him with good singing voice and the ability to play many instruments. If he'd lived,
he would be here now to help me work on this site.
If you took time to read above, I hope it will keep you from making mistakes with your child I made with mine and if your child ever reaches out
to you, hear what they say, put your arms around them to show them how you feel because nothing in life is more important than love to a child.
For every 2 US homicides there're 3 suicides every hour and 45 minutes, it is 2nd leading cause of death for college
students and the third leading cause of death among youth (ages 15-24). Teen, and youth suicide rates have tripled since 1970.
What a parent need to know is
suicide is approaching epidemic proportions and that it is currently the third leading cause of death among teenagers living in USA.
estimated that 300 to 400 teen suicides will happen each year in Los Angeles County and this is equivalent to one teenager that is lost every day. Evidence
indicates for every suicide, there will be 50 to 100 attempts at suicide.
SUICIDE RISK FACTORS:
90% of the young suicide victims have had at least one diagnosed, psychiatric illness at time of death have had depression,
substance abuse or conduct disorders and that only 15% of suicide victims were being treated at time of death.
Between 26% and 33% of of all adolescent suicide victims made a previous suicide attempt, may try it again.
Suicide of a youth often occurs after a victim has gotten into trouble or they've had a recent disappointment or rejection in their life
Firearms in a a home will increase the suicide risk and 64% of suicide victims that are 10 to 24 years old use a firearm to complete the act.
