Left Behind Suicide has a profound effect on those left behind to deal with the grief, the guilt and the stigma. One of those people is ideastream reporter David C. Barnett, whose brother, Frank, took his life in 2010. David's report about Frank's death examines how survivors -- brothers, parents, spouses, kids – cope with their tragic loss.
