“Read this beautiful Eulogy by Rabbi Jonathan Kligler following the recent suicide of a local high school student.  We need to be more open and talk about this important topic, no one should have to suffer in silence.  If you are in crisis call 1-800-273-8255 (American Foundation of Suicide Prevention hotline)”   Breaking the Cycle speaker Ann Marie D’Aliso

Ann Marie D’Aliso and her husband, Patrick, (high school football coach and health teacher), lost their son, Pat, to suicide on May 19, 2004 at 16 years of age.  Nobody feels the death of a child more than a mother, but together with her husband, Ann Marie worked through the terrible trauma that ensued.  Now she serves on the board of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, has a Survivor Support Group, and speaks in school assemblies on suicide prevention and recovery through forgiveness.  By sharing her story Ann Marie hopes “others might be saved”.
