    Haven't heard. Curious myself though lack of news on that usually means they want privacy, which is totally understandable. Just sad news.

    I am wondering if it was a suicide, then? One of my older daughter's childhood friends died in the summer of 2020 at the age of 19. The family kept the details extremely private, and most people assume she committed suicide.

    I hurt for her parents any time I think about it or even when driving on the street that leads to their house, remembering how many times I dropped my daughter off to spend the night there when they were in elementary and middle school.

    No idea and would hate that to be the case. A whole lot of medical conditions do become evident around that age both physical and mood wise, but it is just a tragic situation for Kevin and so too for your daughter's friend and her family. Losing a child no matter the cause I can't even fathom.

    I was on high school and this ultra quiet kid I knew from being in ROTC together, but he had no friends. Just kind of was by himself but friendly enough. Very introverted. I used to go out of my way to talk to him because his grandmother knew mine really well. But it never went anywhere and I didn't really try very hard. He killed himself our senior year before graduation. It was crazy because I saw all these classmates acting upset who treated him pretty poorly, you know just typical guy stuff mocking his last name etc nothing really bad. Just remember even then in the late 90s how you never know what someone is going through and when you reach out, getting a smile from someone might actually matter, but it may not. The key is to try anyway.

    Kids today really face a world that's pretty cold and daunting. Social media alone is a nightmare for any kid to navigate.. then how the internet means things can live on forever.. just really hard times ahead. Whatever happened to Kevione I hope her family is able to eventually find some solace somehow.

    My only brother (younger) took his life in the early 90’s. It still hurts to think about it, but I believe that it is an issue that families need to be open about. Depression is a medical issue that can happen to anyone and shouldn't be regulated to the shadows.

    if not suicide the other issues that I thought of were drug OD or Covid. The later because some are embarrassed to admit they were un-vaccinated.

    My younger daughter is a high school junior this year. When she was a freshman, an Asian boy in her advanced theatre tech class was expelled from that program because two girls reported (incorrectly) that he was threatening to harm them. They were lying, and my daughter went to bat for the boy with the administration at her school.

    In reality, the two girls were bullying him, offering him friendship and then making up lies about him. COVID happened, and he went remote-only last year, which many of our district's Asian students chose to do.

    A few weeks ago, this boy (again in advanced theatre tech with my daughter) pulled her aside and told her that she saved his life quite literally that year. He was seriously contemplating suicide and reconsidered when this tiny, but mighty, and, yes, popular girl stood up for him and defended him.

    He thanked her from the bottom of his heart, and I have never been more proud of her.
