The Death of My Ex-Boyfriend

In past blog entries I’ve alluded to and mentioned an abusive relationship I was in during my late teen years.  Today I’m going to share the entire story of that relationship because it has reached its conclusion; that thread in my tapestry is complete.  About six weeks ago I got word from a friend that my abusive boyfriend committed suicide during a police stand-off in Portland, Oregon.  He was just 3 months shy of his 40th birthday.  I share this story because it involved quite a spiritual journey for me.  I am hoping that by sharing this story I can
