Sure, I'd feel sympathetic to the grieving parent(s) - Most people would. I can't imagine how bad that must suck.

The cold reality is that when it becomes easier for a person to die than it is for them to live, that person is better off dead.

Expecting someone else to live out their life in misery out of some obligation you feel they have to your life is just a concept I simply cannot (and will not) comprehend.
It isn't just being saddened by it. They (the parents) are also the ones who probably have to clean up the mess you left.
