I am speculating, bit I think he just wanted and end to his suffering and he thought that suicide was the only way to accomplish that. Whatever it was that he was going through (and again we don't know what that was) was bad enough that nonexistence made more sense to him. I tend to think that he made an irrational decision and that he wasn't sane when he did it. I don't know. I can't speak for him.

Yeah, I can understand being mad at him for the hurt that he brought upon his family. They are now suffering and this is hard to make sense of. I think we are all a bit shocked and some of us are a bit upset by this. It's natural, it's human. I think it also human to want to assign blame for suffering. For some there is a dichotomy between emotional and intellectual understanding. We have a need to make sense of shocking events and still validate how we feel about it. Either way, I don't think anyone can really tell you what is the right or wrong way to feel about this. All we can do is discuss it.
