In Memoriam: Kate Spade

“Nothing can be said to be certain,” Benjamin Franklin wrote in a letter to Jean-Baptiste Leroy in 1789, “except death and taxes.”

We’re born to die. The clock starts ticking the moment we’re born. It’s sad to hear, though, when folks take their own life to circumvent the process as nature has intended.

One of them was Kate Spade who had made a name for herself in the fashion industry behind the KS brand of women’s bags and accessories. She was found hanging with a red scarf at her New York apartment today. She was 55.

I don’t know what led to her suicide that left a 13-year old daughter without a mother. Could it be because she was depressed? According to the press, she had been suffering from mental illness for sometime now but refused treatment for fear of the negative publicity it might generate to her brand.

“Kate Spade’s tragic passing is a painful reminder that we never truly know another’s pain or the burden they carry,” Ivanka Trump tweeted upon hearing of her passing. I may not be a fan of Ms. Trump, but I couldn’t agree more with what she said.

May she rest in peace.
