Charles Kilduff, the Mission Hospital Suicide-A Little About Him

Mr. Kilduff has weighed on my mind since I heard about his suicide.  Aside from the tragedy, what affected me most was his generous spirit at his darkest hour, purposely committing the suicide on hospital grounds.  Leaving a note for doctors requesting his organs be donated, this location provided the best chance that his organs would still be viable for donation.  Unfortunately, the organs couldn’t be used, but I consider him a hero for this and that he didn’t shoot himself where he could be found by a loved one.

This certainly doesn’t answer the ‘why?’, but at least we know a little bit more of the ‘who’ from his LinkedIn profile.  If you knew him personally, please Comment below, letting us know more about who Charlie was.

Mission Viejo Library closed 4/15-25 but you can download books anytime.

I’m jealous, the library is getting new carpeting.  The planned closure forced me to try their book download service.  It was easy, but had to download some free software first.  Not only can you download books for reading on the computer, but other compatible devices, i.e. smart phone, PDA, iPad, iPod, more.  There’s a collection of audio books available as well.

This service works for PC’s as well as Mac’s, can ‘check-out’ up to five items at a time, and choose whether you want a one or two week check-out time.  It’s pretty cool, and something I’ll use even after the library re-opens because I’m all about convenience.

Man commits suicide outside Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo

So, so sad…..1) because of the depth of his hopelessness to choose to do this; 2)  he wanted to go out making a difference, leaving a note requesting his organs be donated;  and 3) by the time his body was found on a driveway, it was too late to use any of his organs.

I didn’t realize that the types of death allowing for organ recovery are rare, according to Bryan Stewart, a spokesman for OneLegacy, which handles organ donations for more than 200 Southern California hospitals. Mr. Stewart says the donor has to be brain dead but still have a functioning heart or be on a ventilator. Once a person’s heart stops, other organs become oxygen-starved and rapidly deteriorate.

The 48-year-old man, identified as Charles Kildruff from Las Vegas, shot himself on a hospital driveway.  He was declared dead after being rushed to the emergency room.

In case they can be received, which I believe they can, I’m sending thoughts of love to Mr. Kildruff.

Saving Bubba, an abandoned, friendly little 3 yr old basenji mix

Bubba was abandoned in the Mission Viejo area, rescued by a woman with a huge heart who’s unable to take him in herself, but is knocking herself out to help him, even offering to pay for his shots.  A few of us are trying to help her and Bubba get him into a loving home.  He’s smart, funny and mischievous and the perfect age for a family with active children.  What a perk! They can wear one another out!

With his satellite-dish ears and striking red merle and white coat, Bubba has a unique appearance. What’s more, he is very sweet and gets along with other animals. What’s not to love?  I would take him in a New York minute but my HOA prohibits more than two pets, probably a good thing since I would be overrun with cats and dogs by now.

Bubba is at Orange County Animal Care at 561 The City Drive South, in Orange. His I.D. number is A1085397.  Though this shelter strives with everything they’ve got to reduce euthanizing animals, overcrowding can cause it at this shelter.

Let’s save Bubba.  He has so much love to bring to you and a long life ahead of him.
