"No one could make you laugh more easily," one family friend said but wished to remain unidentified. We will call her Jane for sake of the article. "I want them to be remembered as the kind, funny people they were."

Jane, who knew them since childhood, explained that they were good people who had been going through a rough patch in life, dealing with heavy burdens. The incident still came unexpectedly to her.

"The son was living with his parents because he was getting his life together," she said. He had served time and was recovering from substance abuse. Jane also said the daughter was living with her parents after becoming special needs due to complications from a routine surgery.

"I think there was a lot of fighting in that house, a lot of anger and frustration," Jane continued. She believes something in Stephen Mingham may have snapped, but also believes he had no right to take the lives of his family.

"I would never in a million years thought him capable of anything like this," she explained. "He must have felt as if he had no other way out. But he did have options and he chose the wrong one."

Such options are readily available around the clock. Faith based organizations provide counseling services to members of the community. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is also available 24 hours, 7 days a week for anyone in need of their services.

The Lifeline offers a national network of local crisis centers and provide counseling and mental health referrals day and night. If anyone is in need of their services, they can be called at 1-800-273-8255.
