    First of all I would like to say my heart goes out to the family. Whatever the reason is for this act, ending a person’s life is not the solution. Ermias wasn’t the type of person who can do such a harm to people especially if she was his g.friend but God only knows what lead her into doing such hurtful act to end his life. I can’t explain how deeply sorry I am to his family.

    May God bless his soul.
