I'm a heathen and I thought this was a wonderful and thoughtful interview.

 

So sad for his family and friends. 

 

Agreed.

 

I'm sure we've all had someone close to us pass away in our own lives, in those situations some people essentially don't know what to even say to family and friends.

 

It is difficult enough to speak/express feelings yet alone try to be articulate and composed to a journalist.

 

Simpson is grieving in his own way.

I think the interview people were puzzled about was the Peter Malnati interview but it looks like Peter was paired with Grayson Thursday and Friday when Grayson withdrew. Peter said he didn't know him that well but he did just spend 4-5 hours with him competing the last two days. That's got to be tough no matter the relation.

Correct 100%. I think that Peter could use some counseling himself. IMO

Yeah, this knife cuts pretty deep. 

 

My younger brother was born with epilepsy. (I was 10 years old when I learned what to do about a Grand Mal seizure). At the time, they started giving him drugs to manage it. (Phenobarbital, if anyone is familiar). In his 20s he started drinking - which you really don't want to do on that drug. He fought through it and started achieving (and man, he had a tough fight). He had the full support of our family, but it was a real battle. He ultimately got his commercial real estate license. Was engaged to a wonderful woman (she and I still talk all these years later) - they were waiting to get married until after she finished her PT degree. 

 

He was back on his medication, and was close to two years sober. He had beat back his demons, and had returned to the Catholic church that were were raised in. On his final weekend, he had done a four hour prayer vigil. His church did these things - where they would do "24 hours of prayer" for a parishioner that was sick (or something). People took turns doing four hour shifts. 

 

He went from there to a pick-up basketball game with some buddies. In a sort of freak accident, he fell, hit his head on the court. Apparently a small blood vessel broke, he went into a coma, and never awoke. So sudden, and unexpected, just as it seemed like he had "righted the ship" and had a new sunrise of his life on the horizon. Was the aneurism partially caused by the epilepsy, or the alcohol? Things that will never be known, and do not matter. (I wish speculation about Grayson would end - it really does not matter how it happened.)

 

Events like these get me a bit philosophical. I have gotten to know many, many people from all over the world in the course of my life, and for reasons that to this day are unfathomable to me, now and then I run into people that just seem to have been born "swinging outside in, with their weight on the back foot". And no matter what they do, they are always swimming upstream. 

 

So yeah, Grayson really resonates with me. And I get what his parents (and his fiancé) must be feeling. And it is this: "This can't be real, it is unfair. 

@bobfoster I am sorry. I hope you, your loved ones, and your brother’s fiancée were eventually able to gain a measure of peace; keep the faith.

I know that we do not know the cause of Murray's passing but I admire his openness about his mental health and struggles in the past along with his efforts to work on everything. If anyone out there is struggling, please know that there are resources and help available. It may seem really dark and bleak at times but it can get better.

His family has put out a statement, and within it, they shared that he took his own life.  Very sad for all of them, family and friends.

I'm an alcoholic myself so I know. I actually am two months sober today after drinking a couple half gallons of vodka two months back on yet another "slip". 

 

I'm guessing more details about his death will come out in time...

 

 

I just thought he had really turned a corner recently and the better part of his life was ahead for him. 

Thanks for sharing @Joe85and @woodriff - completely heartbreaking story. Prayers to him and his family.
