May you rest in peace
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you. Do what makes you happy, and do it a little better every day… and don’t forget to breath!

The father of one of her sons commits suicide and then she does the same. What kind of selfish **** would do that to their children? If that's the kind of crap she does to her children then I have zero respect for her.

It's that kind of ignorance regarding mental health issues, that may drive people to do desperate things. Perhaps she was so lost in depression that she thought her kids were better off without her ? So easy for people to judge hey ?

With all due respect they never once mentioned " depression " or did I miss it ?

If you look a little closer in her history, you will find a whole series of failed relationships, drug abuse, alcoholism.

Impaired driving, forging prescription drugs, assault of her own mother, probation violations.
Her children were taken into foster care and she was under investigation in the death of her boyfriend.
Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death.

Proving once again that money isn't the cure, the salvation or the end all, be all.

She should have had it all. Hits raking in dollars, should have had a place paid off, a good advisor and income vehicles to pay for the between times between hits. But no.

So sad.
Please stop bragging on facebook about how great the Okanagan is right now, or they'll want to move here.
