'Oprah': Marie Osmond speaks on her son Michael's suicide

"I had spoken with him the evening before and it was concerning to me, because it was the first time I had heard him start to cry and say he was alone, that he had no friends, that he felt despair," Osmond said on Thursday's "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

Michael's words "brought up so many red flags" for Osmond. "When I heard him say 'I have no friends,' it brought back when I went through depression," says Osmond, who suffered post-partum depression, growing tearful. "I told him, Mike, I'm going to be there Monday, and it's going to be okay. But depression doesn't wait until Monday."
