“My husband was sick – he had a mental illness and he died as a result of the mental illness. The way in which it took him was through suicide,”
“In everything that has been said about me – this is my first time ever talking about any of this stuff – no one has been honest enough to say that he committed suicide, [they keep saying] ‘It’s alleged’. It’s not alleged – that is what happened as a result of mental illness.
“We should be able to have that conversation honestly, because these are things that happen all the time. We can’t be scared to say this person had depression.”
