  7. 7. &quot;I&apos;m just some girl with a dream of a life worth living for. <br />I want to become a counsellor - one of the best! <br />I want to hang onto the people important to me - and not have them leave me. <br />I want to be loved - is that so much to ask?&quot; <br />(Taken from Sheri’s social networking profile on the internet)<br />

  9. 9. Moira Vivian was Sheri’s mum.<br />Only 6 months after Sheri’s suicide, Moira took a cocktail of drugs and sadly passed away.<br />She could not cope with the death of her eldest daughter, and had told family members that she was to blame for Sheri’s death. She was convinced she could have done more.<br />Telling her family she was going to the cinema, Moira left her family home never to return.

  13. 13. The inevitable part is the fact that you are still here and the people closest to you live day by day in a deep sadness – you have let them down and it will never be the same. They also live with a silent dread of if and when you might try again. Their sleepless nights, phone calls just to check you are still around. You realise you have created a bigger agony that has spread to others.<br />Stuart Collins<br />12.3.1971 - 3.12.2004<br />

  15. 15. We cannot change the past, but we can make the future better.<br />NEVER think that somebody might be lying about having suicidal thoughts. TAKE IT SERIOUSLY – it really is a matter of life or death.<br />
