My heart breaks for you and all of Sage's family and friends. If there is any way I can be of service please let me know. If I may offer this prayer

God of us all, we thank you for Christ's grace,
through which we pray to you in this dark hour.
A life we love has been torn from us.
Expectations the years once held have vanished.
The mystery of death has stricken us.
O God, you know the lives we live and the deaths we die—
woven so strangely of purpose and of chance,
of reason and of the irrational,
of strength and of frailty, of happiness and of pain.
Into your hands we commend the soul of Sage.
No mortal life you have made is without eternal meaning.
No earthly fate is beyond your redeeming.
Through your grace that can do far more than we can think or imagine,
Fulfill in this young man your purpose that reaches beyond time and death.
Lead him from strength to strength,
and fit him for love and service in your kingdom.
Almighty God, in your keeping there is shelter from the storm,
and in your mercy there is comfort for the sorrows of life.
Hear now our prayer for those who mourn and are heavy laden.
Give to them strength to bear this grief with grace and peace.
Lighten their darkness with your love.
Enable them to see beyond the things of this mortal world
the promise of the eternal.
Help them to know that your care enfolds all your people,
that you are our refuge and strength,

For all that Sage has given us to make us what we are,
for that of him which lives and grows in each of us,
and for his life that in your love will never end,
we give you thanks.
As now we offer him back into your arms,
comfort us in our loneliness,
strengthen us in our weakness,
and give us courage to face the future unafraid.
Draw those of us who remain in this life closer to one another,
make us faithful to serve one another,
and give us to know that peace and joy which is eternal life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Grace and tears

My sincerest condolences. And thank youBen for shinging the light on hard road to normal.

Such terrible news. I'm sure losing his father was incredibly hard for Sage. I lost my own when I was about his age, and it was crushing for me, as I'm sure it was for Sage. I hope he is in a better place, free from the demons that haunted him. Rest in peace young man.

Ollie and Linda - There are simply no words that can take away the pain or ease the loss. Only time. Please know you're both in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry. I didn't know Ryan or Sage, but I felt like I did (just a little) through this place.

Prayers for you all.

I happened to check in today, and am so sorry that I did. This is terrible news, as we were all rooting for Sage. I am so, so sorry.

Everyone in this community is behind you and Sage's mother. Although there may be nothing we can do to ease your pain and loss, know that many of us are thinking of you and your family.

So sorry to hear this news.
You just never know.
I (almost) went through this with my 13 YO son back in March.
He is an "A" honors student, plays sports, we called him our sesame street kid, never argued, never hated and BAM !!! didn't think his life meant anything and took a whole bottle of sleeping pills.
He was on life support for three days. All summer at therapy camps. We still check him every day, and will until we die.
Luckily he had a friend that he was skyping w/ when he did it, she texted my wife after we had all gone to bed to check on him or we'd have lost him.
I can only imagine what y'all are going through. I've thought about what our family and lives would be like w/o him here and it's not a good feeling.
True depression is a tough thing to grasp if you're not going through it.

Absolute heartfelt condolences to your family,
