Sad sad loss.  11 year old daughter.

But he lived a fuller life in his 61 years than most of the rest of us will in our lifetimes.

Young children are the true victims of suicides.   Kate Spade had a 13 year old daughter.   Children left behind to cope with the suicide is what I find sad.

Truly tragic all around. Apparently he was discovered by Eric Ripert. If you ever saw these two interact in person, you'd think they were actual brothers. My thoughts go out to his family and friends.

The suicide rate has been increasing steadily, for a variety of complex reasons. Unfortunately, about half of people who complete suicide (not just attempt) have had a parent who completed suicide. Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade's young daughters shouldn't have to face this burden.

I just took a quick look at the CDC website for some figures.  In 2016, 44,193 Americans committed suicide, and the rate of suicide is increasing.  It's a troubling statistic with a huge human cost aside from the deceased.

Sorry for the loss. 

For his entire family. For everyone he knew.

I used to really enjoy his first two shows. I hope he finds peace. 

I hadn't heard he passed until seeing this... Sad.
