Julien Hug took his life last week and he was finally laid to rest in San Diego, California on Friday. The former Bachelorette contestant committed suicide on November 3 with a gunshot.
“He was depressed and struggling, and nobody knew. He couldn’t find his way”, his father told UsMagazine.com last week.
At the funeral, his suicide note to his parents was read aloud. “I’m sorry to have to do this to you. I love you both tremendously. You two are the best parents,” he wrote. “I’ve suffered from severe depression for years. I feel awful and don’t know how to cope. If life’s not enjoyable, why stick around?” he said in the note.
“I will miss every night where we would lie in bed and before he went to sleep he would whisper in my ear and say I love you”, his girlfriend Jennifer Bel said at the memorial service.
