I have to be honest with you when I say I will never understand suicide. Yes I know some who take their own lives have serious mental troubles, but I still wrestle with it.
The hurt that is caused by this act is just so tremendous, I can't imagine ever doing that to someone.
This is just my personal thought, I have had a family member attempt suicide, so I am not just speaking uninformed.
I do know that there is so much more behind suicide, and that not everyone will share my thoughts on this terrible issue that needs to be talked about.
With that, Kate Spade took her own life sometime between Monday evening and Tuesday morning at 10:30am when her housekeeper found her.More details of her death are now coming out from different news sources.
She is said to have died by apparently killing herself using a scarf tied to her bedroom doorknob.She was found by her housekeeper, who immediately got the building superintendent, who then cut the scarf and attempted CPR.
It was too late.
TMZ is reporting that Kate did leave a note behind to her 13 year old daughter Francis Beatrix that read:
"Bea - I have always loved you. This is not your fault. Ask Daddy!"
It seems that Kate had been very depressed leading up to her death. Her husband had supposedly wanted a divorce, and she didn't.
Reports coming in, but not confirmed, are that it was after a meeting where the divorce filing was confirmed that Kate had made her decision.
This entire situation is very sad. I can only hope that the family is able to find peace.
Kate Spade was 55 years old. Below is the breaking news alert that came out initially...
