I am wondering if he was one of our kids. Did he attended our schools? It is extrange that they do not know where he lived.

He wasn't a Paly student, according to my directories and yearbooks.

[Portion removed by Palo Alto Online staff.] Please show a little respect and compassion to those who are left behind. My heart goes out to the family of this young man. This is a tragic loss of a young life.

I was suicidal in high school although I never actually attempted. Now, I am a doting mom. Those students will never know what they missed by taking their lives so soon. I read that people who jump off bridges and live to tell, have stated that on their way down, they already had regrets and no longer wanted to die. Dying is permanent; there are always solutions.
