So Tina Turner's eldest son, Craig Turner (59 years old) was found dead last July 3 in an apparent suicide after suffering a gunshot to the head. His ashes was scattered from a boat off the coast of California last Friday.

It's so sad since no matter how old your kids are, they will always be your kids and it's sad when your kids die before you. It's even harder when they die from suicide. As a mom, I know I will always wonder if there was anything I could do to stop that. I feel bad for Tina Turner.

This is sad news indeed. You can't really blame yourselves as parents if your child commits suicide. Sometimes there are no signs no matter how close you are to your child. You just have to hope that your child knows that he/she can talk to you about anything.

This is really a heartbreaking moment for the parents. Instead of blaming them, let's give them comfort that their child is already in God's hands.

I can imagine how hard it is for any parent to lose a child. My mom went through hell when my sister took her own life. It was hard to lose a family member and to see yet another one lose her grip on life. She has gone to see a professional to deal with the grief and we can only hope for the best.

Oh, yet another sad news. I don't follow Tina Turner's life so I'm not sure the situation of his son. At that age, I can't imagine what he is going through to have committed suicide. They always say that strong emotional support is key to prevent suicide. It must be hard for him, being a celebrity son.

That's true. Not being a celebrity, I can't imagine what image he has to abide by, or what demands and stress he faced in his life.

Sometimes I wonder, do we live in a more demanding and tougher world? Maybe it would be better to live in a simpler world where expectations are not that crazy. Maybe people would be happier.

Exactly! Too much expectation coming from the family plus from other people can really put a lot of pressure. For parents who experienced losing their children through suicide, sorry for your loss. You don't have to put the blame to yourselves.
