Jamey I am so sorry that you lost this battle you were such a sweet kid and I am so sorry that I couldnt do more to help you...Paws Up

Jamey Rodemeyer, a 14-year-old gay teen from the Buffalo, NY area, killed himself last weekend after what his parents say was years of bullying, WIVB reports:

Soon after coming home from a family camping trip, Jamey was found dead Sunday. His parents say he was always under pressure because of struggles with his sexuality. Jamey's mother Tracy Rodemeyer said, "So he hung around with the girls a lot, so then the teasing started happening like 'Oh you're such a girl or you're gay or whatever and that bothered him for many years."

Jamey's father Tim Rodemeyer said, "To the kids who are bullying they have to realize that words are very powerful and what you think is just fun and games isn't to some people, and you are destroying a lot of lives."

Buffalo News adds:

On Saturday night, he posted a lyric from Lady Gaga's song "The Queen" on his Facebook page: "Don't forget me when I come crying to heaven's door."

Then around 1:30 a.m. Sunday, Jamey posted two final messages to his main public Tumblr blog. One said he really wanted to see his great-grandmother, who had recently died, and one offered thanks to Lady Gaga.

That was his last entry.

Jamey was very active online, with a Tumblr blog, and YouTube account. He "routinely blogged about school bullying and thoughts of suicide in between upbeat posts about his pop star idol Lady Gaga" and posted to his followers about National Suicide Prevention Week, the paper adds.

Jamey was a 14-year old boy from Buffalo, NY who ended his life tragically because of gay bullying. I didn't know him personally but the love online is strong and true, he was a beautiful soul and has touched many lives. I dedicate this to Jamey and all those who knew him, I am so sorry.

Jamey was a huge Lady Gaga fan and it was his dream to have her follow him on twitter. If you can share this link so Gaga sees this it would be greatly appreciated! If you are wondering about the audio recording - That is Jamey. I got it from his Youtube channel and it was one of his video's to Lady Gaga.

And to those who are being bullied or know of bullying happening to someone or suspect someone who may be contemplating ending their lives please do not hesitate to tell an adult or parent. Don't make the mistake of staying silent, you could be saving your own life or someone else's.
