Maybe the guy thought no one in the world cared if he was around any more. This story showed that two guys did care. It can change someone's outlook.
I know someone who was going thru a hard time and try to take thier own life...and now 22 yrs later she is the best thing that has ever happened to me, so I married her. She's pregnant with our child right now.
Looking at her now, no one would ever believe she ever tried to kill herself. She doesn't waste a moment, overfilling with life, motivates me, challenges me, and inspires me.
Good job Ron and "other guy".
