A GoFundMe account has been set up for the Moudy family to help them navigate this particularly difficult time. 

Jennifer Moudy took to her own Instagram page to share a statement that was written by her cousin. “We all have so many thoughts and feelings, but few words to express them. It’s hard to explain how one minute you’re heartbroken over the amount of pain and desperation he endured, and the next you’re in a rage for the voice that he made. You have to keep reminding yourself to direct the anger at the choice and the sadness at the loss of an amazing dad, husband, son, brother, cousin, nephew, and friend. As a family, we don’t want other families to endure such a loss,” the statement, said, in part.

“45,979 families felt this pain when the last statistics were done. On average there are 130 suicides per day. Those numbers are not ok. Seeing the amount of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and suicidal thoughts and deaths in pediatrics increases exponentially over the last 10 years is not ok. We have to do better.”

The statement continued, writing, that while social media can be great in some cases, “it’s not real life. 95% of what one sees on social media is happy, smiling, faces without a car in the world, when on the inside their world could be crumbling. We have to remind our kids, our friends, and our families of that.”

“We have to help them remember that we all have sadness, hopelessness, and despair at times but it’s never front and center on the platforms we spend so many hours a day swiping through. Any issue that is causing those feelings can be changed, not necessarily without upheaval and work, and not in the blink of an eye, but change can always happen. A permanent solution to a temporary problem is never the answer.”

The statement then talks about Bobby as a person. “There was not a bad bone in his body, he just made a very poor choice that has left his family without a home or any financial security.”
