Lost Hopes:  Suicide In Harvey County, Kansas

Lost Hopes and Crushed Dreams have sometimes overwhelmed our residents, resulting in their attempted, or successful, suicide.  While the initial pain may reside in the heart of one individual, suicide has a tragic effect on everyone around them.  

It is true from an earthly perspective that, “A man’s spirit will endure sickness, but a crushed spirit who can bear?” (Proverbs 18:14).  Yet comfort is available: “The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit” (Psalm 34:18).

This page is dedicated to the memory of those whose lives were effected by suicide in Harvey County.
