"I live in Wales, UK... I am very touched by your story. ...I want to thank you for your memories of your special son. I know with all my heart, he is close to you, and you will all be together again one day. I hope you will continue being a strong person, from your strength others will grow. (on Sept. 28, 99) ...I am sure your web page is a comfort to a lot of people. I think a lot of people do not understand about suicide. I think I gained some understanding from your web page, and I was happy to learn that we don't get judged on our acts at the time of suicide, as I suppose I was thinking at one stage. People must be so unhappy at the time of suicide, or maybe just ill. It is a sad fact of life, be we can't always be there for everyone. My great granddad, committed suicide. My mum found him when she was a school girl, she said she didn't know anything was bothering him at the time. Who knows what makes people do these things. I hope we can all have compassion one with another."

"Thank you for this site! A Friend of mine gave me the site address. Jared was a good friend of mine, and now that today is his birthday I really think about the good times we had, he always made me laugh. And when I was down he cheered me up. He was a good friend and I knew I could always count on him. ...I'm very sad that he is gone, we all are, but I just remember the good times. (on Sept. 24, 99) ...I like the idea, National Eat Worm's in Dirt Cake Day. I'm happy that you and your friends, and family still had fun yesterday. That's cool, make a cake and still celebrated Jared's birthday."
(note: on Jared's birthday we had dirt cake and declared September 23rd "National Eat Worm's in Dirt Cake Day" in remembrance of Jared High's birthday.)

"I looked up your site and was very touched by it. I have a neighbor that just lost a child and another friend that lost her husband. I am giving them your site information. It is a beautiful thing you have done... Thank you again for your work of love, I will give your site to others."

"I wanted to tell you thank you for sharing your son with all of us. I lost my father to suicide almost two years ago and I found answers to some of my questions in your words. I know we will all have a chance to see our loved ones again. My faith in loving Heavenly Father is strong, but no one ever expressed to me what you shared in your article "Where do those who commit suicide go?" It brought a strength into my life and tears to my eyes. Thank you! May God bless you and your family and may you always know that "families are forever"."

"I just read the article in Mormontown newsletter about suicide, ("Where do those who commit suicide go?). Then I had to know more about your little boy. How wonderful to remember him this way. You really "have" a great kid! What a blessing to have had him in your life! God bless you, I bet Jared is proud of you for your efforts to help others! Thanks for answering lots of questions!"

"Jared was a close friend. One thing I do remember most about him, is his never giving up attitude, and how he arm wrestled all the kids at school. He had a lot of fun, and we had a lot of fun with him."

"I'm very sorry for your loss. I lost my father to suicide on June 22nd of this year. I know what a traumatic shock a loss to suicide is. It's such a shame. I try to make myself feel better by remembering all of the wonderful times that I had w/my father and that he's in a better place now, where he so desperately wanted to be. Us left behind need to be strong and have great faith in the Lord."

"Here I am just cruising around. A friend of mine has expressed a desire to do a memorial for her long departed Dad, ...he committed suicide back in 1973. He was a wonderful guy... I happened across your Jared's memorial and was brought to both laughter and tears. Jared was very special, wasn't he? I just lost my mom and had a memorial done for her. Yours is spectacular to say the least! All the help you are offering to others is wonderful. I know how that helps you as well... My mom died of Brain Cancer..."

"Thank you for your site... you are an amazing
person to do that... to put that up for other people to see. You don't
even know how much it just helped me. I'm sorry for your loss... but from
your loss, you're saving a lot of lives. Thank you for saving mine."
