Terrible news about Gary Speed, only 42 with a wife and two teenage sons, it makes you wonder what his mind was like. I noticed his hands shaking a lot on tv the other day, maybe he was suffering with nerves.

    It is so sad when he had everything going for him and there were no apparent problems..
    My OH suspects that maybe something was going to come to light in the papers and he couldn't cope with it???
    We can all summise, but my deepest sympathy goes to his 2 boys and wife..how sad and confused they must be feeling at this time..xx

    We were driving along in glorious sunshine when we heard the news. We thought heart or stroke so the news that suicide is suspected is truly shocking. DD

    We heard a rumour that the Sun was about to print something but no idea if there's any truth in that , sincerely hope not . Really sad to think of his wife and 2 young lads and how they must be suffering . R I P

    My OH & I where sat watching Sky Sports (he wanted to watch Villa get smashed!!) when we heard and we 1st thought maybe he had been in a car accident. But when we both heard suicide we where both shocked and saddened. He was a great player, was doing well with the Welsh team and come across as a totally nice bloke. I hope the sun wheren't about to write a story, hope they feel bad. Very sad. R.I.P Gary.
