Please join me, Donna Hansen Williams, as I raise awareness for suicide prevention in honor of my sister, Brenda Hansen Ike whose birthday is on August 6th. Brenda died by suicide on July 15, 2018.
Brenda was the funniest most outspoken person you would ever meet! Brenda was very loving and sensitive.
I have learned that I will never recover from Brenda's loss, but I've learned that it's okay to be happy, to find joy, and to love and be loved again.
Brenn, we "wubba" you!!
I hope if you have lost a special person in your life or struggle with mental health, that you too will learn to live the life you were put on this earth to live.
You are not alone. If you need help or know of someone who needs support, please reach out for help by calling 211 or texting HOME to 741741.
