Work today was...disrupted

We were notified today that the eldest son of our office chief committed suicide yesterday. I'd never met him and don't know the whole story, though I was told at some point that part of the reason his father took the job here was to remove him (the son) from various bad influences. I'm pretty sure the son was still in his teens.

Even though I clearly have had no personal contact with this boy, and not much more with his family, it's sobering when such a young person decides they aren't willing to continue to live.
