Keith Nokes, a young man who had everything to live for, committed suicide. His decision, his action, shocked and affected everyone who knew and loved him. His mother, Laura, faced the grief of her son in a courageous and meaningful way, for twenty years she dedicated herself to reaching out to others about suicide.
