Kate, it’s been a little over a month since we lost you. I have so many questions that I’m starting to realize I’ll never have answers to. I keep wondering if there was anything I could’ve done to stop you from doing this. Mom and Dad are so sad and distraught, so I’m doing my best to be strong for them. I can’t sleep anymore after seeing the suicide selfie you took on your phone, and I don’t think I’ll ever get that image out of my mind. I’ll be saying your eulogy next week, and I just pray that I do you justice. I wonder if you are looking down on us and seeing what this has done. Did you know how much we loved you? I can’t imagine the despair you were in, but why didn’t you talk to me. I miss you and still can’t believe this is real.
