‘I often wonder just how I managed to survive the loss of my Mark to suicide – the pain almost crippled me in so many ways. I have always been a believer that everything happens for a reason… but THIS… Suicide… there was no rhyme and no reason it seemed. Suicide always leaves you with so many WHY’S… which led me on a journey to find out WHY… bringing more pain at each discovery.’
In 1998, Tanya French was a busy and happy wife and mother of three, doing just what every other mother does – to do her utmost to give her family the best life they could possibly have – whilst simultaneously managing a highly successful international company with her husband, Mark.
Then, her world and that of her family changed dramatically when Mark suddenly and tragically took his own life, sending her family, friends, and a whole town into total shock. This man – this outgoing, vivacious, talented, funny, life of the party – had ended his own life, prompting Tanya to set out on a journey to understand why he would choose to end his life so tragically and so violently and why he would leave those that loved him so much.
