I spent the better part of a few hours reading about Ms. Scott. In other
accounts, she was in debt to the tune of about 6 million dollars. And
apparently, she would not accept any financial help from Mr. Jagger. Therein
lies the tragedy. She valued her life only so far as she was successful in a
worldly sense. I have no doubt that he would have given almost anything to help
her. It's clear that he loved her. Her pride would not allow her to ask
for help. So sad. So sad. My thoughts go out to him, who likely did not even
know about her debt.
The article states her designs bared little skin. That, alone, suggests a
modesty that may have been ingrained from her "supposed" religious
upbringing. She sounds like a lovely person. What a tragedy.
Condolences to her brother, other family and friends in her circle of influence.
I appreciate Objecified's comments. Personally, I like reading about a
"Utah" connection or a "Mormon" connection. Nothing to
criticize there, just an interesting bit of trivia. She sounded like a nice
@ Bob K:"Copacetic" wasn't criticizing the woman's
choices, but merely pointing out what appeared to be missing in her life based
on the information given in the article. Obviously something was missing from
her life in order for her to feel the need to take it. Given what is
known, it's not a stretch to posture it's possible she did miss having
a family of her own. It's usually in midlife that people without immediate
families (spouse and children) often feel something missing. I'm not
stating that this was this lady's issue, but it certainly was a
possibility. Without leaving a note, it's doubtful we'll ever know for
certain. But that guess is as valid as anyone else's.Also,
Copacetic didn't say anything about "Mormons" or her "leaving
the fold". Nor did the article itself. That jump was yours and yours alone.
Not a copacetic move on your part. The article merely stated she was adopted by
Mormon parents as a baby, and nothing else.
I'm roughly the same age as she-- lived and worked in Manhattan - interned
with a fashion designer there, even married a non-member who it turns out wanted
no children. I felt compelled to leave that situation feeling empty
wanting a family. (Hallelujah!) I was led to leave NYC and found the arms of
another - receiving a temple marriage and we now have 7 children. I know fame and success can be a crutch or a hedge to keep one from following
after God's path. It is fascinating the heights she reached and famous
boyfriend. Keep me humble, keep me safe from pride. Dirty dishes to do and
diapers to change are a blessing!!!! My many children keep me from the world,
all my money goes to them, my pride goes out the window as I have one with
disabilities. All these things are blessings. They will help me reach heaven
Bob - I don't see where copacetic criticized any decision nor made any
reference to her leaving the Mormon church. You made those things up.
CopaceticLogan, UT"Most suicides have the commonality of
loneliness. It would seem that the only things missing in this person's
life was the sense of security that comes with a solid, dependable marriage, and
perhaps a family of her own that usually comes with that good marriage
relationship. A loving spouse and family almost always give people more to like
for."-- I do not see that it is "copacetic" for anyone
to criticize the choices of the recently dead. Yes, she left the mormon fold,
and made her own choices, but one could say that she might have killed herself
years ago, or been desperately unhappy, if she stayed in a situation she felt
called to leave.
Trying to point out some sort of mormon or utah connection feels crass. It was
the rolling stones, not the choir.
