Was she stupid?
You are obviously the stupid one....do you not realize her family, especially her children will see this? Apparently you are not a very bright individual and have no consideration for others. I hope you will never have to read some jerk's ugly comments about your mother.

Get over it, Mitch

I have seen almost as many dad bodies as a funeral director

Hey Doooooce, you should change your screen name to Dooouuche, that would be more appropriate.

It is interesting how information is spread - Who told you about what was in her hotel room?
Yes, the scene was horrific- But think of her family having to deal with it - my prayers go out to them and to those to witness this scene
The hotel staff. Our waitress. I can even tell you the room #. I heard that, when hotel management was talking to an officer at the scene. They're weren't alot of people around. It's off season, like a ghost town.

In all seriousness, I feel for the woman. She must have been in severe emotional and/or physical pain to do what she did

She was, however thoughtless about the way she did it. I am sure her family will never want to go down to the beach again because of that.

Not to mention the mess somebody had to clean up

Another rude way to commit suicide is in yur house where you leave a mess for your family members to clean up. And every time your family member go to that room, they will be reminded of.

If you have to do the deed, take a drive out to the country in the middle of the night, write a note for the dashboard of your car, set up a lawn chair, have a few drinks and do the deed.

Make sure you are close enough to the road so some passing motorists can see you in the morning

I was there that night also.. Standing right in front of the hotel when she fell.. I was out with a friend walking on the board walk.. At the time there was one other lady outside and two men came out a few sec after that worked at the hotel.. I saw her fall and when she hit the bottom.. Yes the scene was horrible and yes she was in two peices. However, She did not scream on while she was falling.. If a situation like that can possibly be peacful it was then. I am very sorry for her family and friends but please know that your loved one cared and loved you and she is now in a better place.

To all that witnessed the scene I am very sorry. To all the family that is involved I am truly sorry. Death of a family member or friend is never easy. Especially when unexpected. I am sorry that I do not feel compassion for her as a person who ended her own life. Although there was pain and suffering ending your own life only brings pain and suffering to friends, family and loved ones. I only wish she would of searched for help from anywhere rather than taking the easy way out!! My thoughts and prayers are with you through this difficult time.

You must have TOO MANY run ins with the Virginia Beach Police Department. You are probably the reason why they dont talk. Its known of your business. I know several va. beach police officers who quite often in my opinion have to much to say.

How dare you? You are talking about a human being!! Her stepdaughter is one of my closest friends and it makes me sick to my stomach that she or anyone else in the family could see what you have written about their loved one. How can anyone be so cruel? This woman meant so much to so many people and her family is in more pain than you could imagine. God forgive me for the judgment I pass on you for your heinous, inexcusable comment.

So very sad. This is why I rarely read the comment section after emotionally-charged articles. It sickens me -- the lack of empathy, compassion, consideration that some lower mentalities display. But it's easy to be ignorant when you're hiding behind your computer screen.

This woman's emotional and physical pain had to push her to some limit that the rest of us lucky people can't understand. No mother wants to leave her family or cause them heartache. But we are all just human. When it comes right down to it, we all have to face death alone.

Best wishes to everyone affected by this tragedy, either personally or as collateral damage. Let her teach us to appreciate our health and good fortune while we have it and to love those around us as if each day was their last.

I understand the need for the pain to go away, I still believe that she took the easy way out and caused more pain to her family and friends. Her pain is gone now but the pain of losing a loved one in such an awful way will stay with them forever. TRUST ME BEEN THERE DONE THAT!! It nevers gets easier to deal with. It is so selfish.

You have a very small brain and probably some other parts too if you think 138 is fat. I dont recall saying I was interested in you either. Thats what you get for assuming I was interested in you.

If you are referring to my comment, that is exactly what i said. I feel sorry for the families that are left to deal with this tragedy. Suicide is never the right thing to do in any circumstance. It is very selfish and shows no compassion for the family still alive to try and cope with the loss.
