I grieve with you. But as you said, the action you friend took was his
choice. I had a similar incident "up close and personal" in my senior year in
college. I did not know the individual involved all that well, but she was
beautiful, a great actress and the daughter of the dean of my college. She
gave me a ride home and then went to her home and did the deed. It was very
traumatic and soon after I graduated with honors and received a "glowing"
letter from her father! Talk about guilt. Theological beliefs aside, the
ultimate freedom we have is to take our own lives.
At least you friend did not get in a car and kill someone else. Grieving
on the anniversary of traumas is a normal thing. I will pray for you.
