(LOS ANGELES TIMES) Rick Warren said it’s been difficult to deal with some of the hate mail and online comments he’s read since announcing Saturday that his son had committed suicide.

“Grieving is hard. Grieving as public figures, harder. Grieving while haters celebrate your pain, hardest,” Warren wrote on Facebook on Monday night.

Warren has been deluged with words of support both at his Saddleback Church in Orange County and on the Web.
