The news that Kate Spade commuted suicide is just awful. I don't know Kate. But I wonder what was going on in her mind. I imagine she was lonely or depressed or unhappy.
A few different people mentioned to me something like, "How could someone with so much fame, a fashion line and endless money kill themselves?"

In Memory of Jackson the Poodle
My heart aches for our friend Amanda. Her Standard Poodle Jackson passed away on Friday May 25, 2018.
