Marie Osmond always hoped her troubled son Michael Blosil would be able to shrug off his problems - and she was stunned when he allegedly took his own life on Friday, February 26, according to her friend Mary Hart. The 18-year-old's body was found on the street outside his Los Angeles home on Friday evening, after he reportedly fell from the apartment building.

Officials are said to be treating Blosil's death as suicide. Osmond canceled her upcoming appearances in her Las Vegas revue with her brother Donny after hearing of her adopted son's death, and released a statement asking for privacy in the light of the tragic events. The singer's close pal, "Entertainment Tonight" host Mary Hart, has now opened up about how Osmond is dealing with the loss, insisting she is "finding solace in her faith and her family."

She tells CBS' "The Early Show", "You can bet she has loving arms around her. The Osmonds are a very close-knit family and, in times of loss or tragedy, they support each other and really band together as a family, and in love." Hart reveals Blosil, who is said to have suffered from depression, endured several stints in rehab over the years, but seemed to be enjoying his time at fashion college in L.A. before his sudden death.

She adds, "He had struggled. He had been in and out of rehab. And, Marie, always looking for the silver lining, had always hoped for the best. I've seen him throughout the years, but on this particular day (a month ago, when I last saw him), he and Marie were so excited about him attending the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in L.A. They were upbeat, and he was very happy, and seemed to be looking toward the future."

I would recommend becoming educated about something before you decide to bash it. If you knew anyting that was actually true about the Mormon church you would have something very different to say.

You obviously know nothing about the Mormon church. I recommend become at least a little educated about something before you bash it. We all struggle with things in our life, but finding something to blame it on doesn't make those struggles go away.

I wonder just how much the Mormon Church had to do with this kid's Death? I was rumored that he was struggling with his identity to "FIT IN". And we all know that the Mormons reject you if you cannot conform to thier sadistic rules. If you ask me, they made this kid feel really bad about who he was, weather it be about drug addiction or sexuality. Isn't it obvious that the Mormons can be truely identified with the likes of Adolf Hitler and the Natzi Army? Marie needs to get the rest of her kids away from these Monsters. A prime example of what her sick Mormon Brother Alan did 2 days after his Nephew killed himself. Alan was back in Utah promoting his Son's new album instaed of consoling his Sister. Some compassion these Satanist Mormons have, Huh?
