Singer Marie Osmond’s 18-year-old son, Michael Blosil, died by suicide last Friday, Feb. 26. We at the Hug Your Kids project extend our sympathies to the Osmond and Blosil families. What a loss – for his family, his friends, and the world in general.
BTW, saying “committed suicide” is not polite. We say “died by suicide” because the point is he’d dead, and can no longer love, laugh, or contribute. How he died is really beside the point. Not living = not living. Sure, she has 7 other children, but not one can be replaced by another. Every child is unique and irreplaceable.
The fact that Marie was a famous person from a famous family doesn’t make Michael’s death any more important – or any less. He was her son and she was his mother. That’s all that matters.
