    I don’t want to say it was necessary for the author to have Wooly complete suicide, but in my mind it works for the story.  Although I also wish he would have been able to go to CA with Billy and Emmett.  But I think he just felt so trapped and helpless under the power of Dennis.  And despite his family taking him on European trips, I think he largely felt restricted by them.  He didn’t really get to explore even NYC until he was out from under their influence.  So when Dennis told him he was going to get Wooly a job, that’s when Wooly lost all hope for having a life worth living.  So sad.
