To the families of this man, Sorry for your lost. My prayers go to the families of this man who probably felt like no one cared. They say that the incident happened near San Antonio, but I bet that it happened in Palo Alto. I think they want to say near San Antonio so it does not sound like Palo Alto is becoming a place to die.

I wish these suicides would stop. It is so sad. My heart goes out to his family and friends. I do believe San Antonio station is in Mountain View.

First of all, I am so sorry to hear this. I am sorry for his family and friends.

Still, I believe the police are trying to make Palo Altans think they are safer than they really are.

I knew my dear sweet Josh. We both struggled with the same problems. He was kind, wacky, wild and unfortuneatly terribly troubled. I love you Josh, you will be missed!! RIP love
