ANOKA, Minn. -- Tammy Aaberg remembers her son Justin as someone who was always smiling and loved to play the cello.
Then in January, Justin's family rushed him to a hospital after he stabbed himself in the stomach with a pocketknife.
Later, Justin told his parents he was gay and that someone from his school had outed him a couple of months earlier. The family talked openly about it. Justin told of friends he could confide in, and about boyfriends.
"We loved and supported our son very much," Tammy Aaberg said.
