Miss Kitten, I knew her too. She was a bright lovely woman. Thank you for starting this thread. It was hard to read the blog and see no information on this tragedy that shook the lives of people who cared about her. My heart aches at the loss of her life. Peace and healing to youJuly 13, 2011 at 5:15 am #729412
As someone who has tried to commit suicide, came very close to succeeding, and really should not be here, I also appreciate that you started this thread. I feel horrible for her family. There is always a better solution than suicide. I am so sorry. :(July 13, 2011 at 5:39 am #729413
oh dear abstract! i, too am so glad you are here too! i must assume that you are glad you were not successful? thank you for sharing such a personal thing with me. i am so glad that you were not successful. i would love to chat with you, if appropriate perhaps we may exchange “real” email address’ and chat. totally your call. i’d never wish to be intrusive. i suffer from extreme depression, ptsd, childhood abuse of ALL forms and am currently a cancer patient. no! i’m not looking for whaa whaa, poor me. i just would love to say or do anything beneficial to anyone suffering. i am honest and anonymous. so feel free. if not, i am so glad your trials did not take you from this earth. my best to you.

dear God i’m sorry. perhaps we met…yard art? please forgive me if i have intruded on such a personal, intimate thing. i meant no harm. i loved her. her goofy sense of humor. the beautiful flowers. always a kind word and smile. i never thought she’d do it. please dear Lord forgive me if this thread is out of place or invasive. that was so not my intent. and if i crossed a line…i beg your forgiveness. God rest her soul. i’m sure she’s in a better place.
she gave me her poppy seeds to start this spring. in her honor i shall…with pride.
my heart goes out to you. everyone did all they could. this thing was bigger than her. rip dear friendJuly 13, 2011 at 5:46 am #729415

thank you abstract i will contact you soon.i am beat and really need to sleep but i thank you for the info and rest assured i look forward to chatting with you…my new friend! thank you God that you are still here to talk toJuly 13, 2011 at 6:23 am #729417
I don’t think you and I have met. I’ve known her for many years. We met in another place and time. I don’t think you intruded on personal things. Having this information gives me somewhere to start understanding too. I wanted to respect her wishes for anonymity but I also found I had a need to see that other people cared, that her tragic death was noticed.
I’m up for a walk if you need to talk to someone. Don’t walk these days? Coffee is fine too.
Abstract–I too am glad you’re here and glad that you’ve found ways to live.July 13, 2011 at 11:27 pm #729418
thank you for the kind response. and again, i am so glad i have not crossed any boundaries
do you perhaps make garden art?July 14, 2011 at 12:07 am #729419
wondering – We didn’t know about it. As I noted earlier. No calls, no texts, no police reports, no e-mail, nothing obvious on the 911 log, until this turned up on the forum two days later. The ones we’ve covered before have been in the middle of the day and somebody witnessed it. And frankly, anything I put on the main page now couldn’t live up to the thread started here by someone who DID know about it, although I am hoping to link to it with a story I commissioned a while back about the Crisis Clinic, knowing I would sadly have another chance to use such a story sometime. This *is* coverage in its own way. And thousands read the forum, so it’s being seen – even though participation isn’t huge, believe me, we see the stats and the usage logs. – TRJuly 14, 2011 at 12:44 am #729420
i hope this doesn’t mean i have breached a confidence? certainly not my intent. just trying to make sense of horrible situation. and help anyone else who may be suffering.
MKJuly 14, 2011 at 1:13 am #729421
im sorry i have occupied so much of everyone’s time with this. i will close the subject. i send out a most sincere thanks to all for the info and the kind words. and again, please realize that depression is a serious metal condition that should not be taken lightly.
goodbye to my dear friend.
i hope you are in a better place.
i wish we could have helped you more.
you were a kind, wonderful, gentle soul and you will be missed by many, many people.
may you rest in peace.
thank you all on the blog.

Miss Kitten, I appreciate you starting the thread. No confidence breached. I am regretful we didn’t hear about it in time for a news story but I was just trying to explain, because it sounded like “wondering” was disappointed there was no news coverage. Thank you for your sensitivity and your openness in talking with folks here. We need more kindness in these pages (as well as elsewhere) and this was an example of it.July 14, 2011 at 4:04 am #729423
thank you so much for your response. i was beginning to feel i may have “opened a can of worms” and i was feeling really bad about it.
i appreciate the time you took to re-assure me. i am so emotional right now, the last thing i want to do is say something i should not. i have passed along some of the info provided here to neighbors and loved ones and they are all very thankful and, in a weird way, slightly consoled. so as i said, i will lay this to rest and hope the best for everyone here and everywhere. but i must reiterate the fact that depression is an ILLNESS and needs to be recognized. and if anyone out there needs help or wonders if they need help…ask! please do not suffer in silence.
you are not alone and tomorrow is another day. please think before you do something irreversible.
again…many, many thanks to all of you for the wonderfully kind support and information.

miss kitten –
I debated on sharing this but I will, I just found out this evening that I have met this woman and have friends that are grieving. Please share with the family that she was loved and will be missed. I suppose thank you is not the right words, but thank you for posting this regardless.July 15, 2011 at 5:33 am #729425
thank you for sharing that. i will pass it along. she so wanted this to be a private matter, but all who knew and loved her want her to be remembered. so, i thank you for the footnote. it was very kind of you. and to you and those you know that knew her, please accept my deepest sympathy and thanks for acknowledging a kind, beautiful soul.
rest in peace our dear, sweet friend.
