Her father admitted she had prior suicidal thoughts and she was seeing a therapist. I don’t think she was taking meds for her illness what a shame her family didn’t catch her in time so she could have stablized herself and led a productive life. So sad and no one could have saved her at that moment. Her parents gave her independence and space to see if she could hopefully correct this but she made that decision to end everything. She was a beautiful kid God Bless Madison.

Guys, let’s stay away from the nasty comments criticizing her family and friends. She had a wonderful family, wonderful friends. You start criticizing her friends and next thing u know, we have another dead teenager that is blaming themself for Madison’s death. No one is at fault here and no one deserves to have to deal with that kind of guilt put on them by all of u that know nothing about the situation

Hey dad…maybe when your daughter makes it clear that she is considering suicide, a TEXT MESSAGE is not the best way to talk her out of it! Are you KIDDING ME? Of all the times that an actual real life phone call is in order, that is it!

he never said that he thought she was thinking about committing suicide… he just said that he was feeling worried about how she was doing. Don’t blame her father for this.

If you want to date wealthy men and beautiful women with high net worth, ideally you must know where these people hang out. Don’t know where to start? ++++ WealthyPeople.Org ++++ The easiest way to go would be meeting them online.

So sad – I’m sure the fact that she was going to Lehigh for a meet the next day; the place she had missed out on going to and playing soccer at when she decided to go to Penn probably rubbed salt in her wounds. The fact that she was unhappy at Penn and then had to be reminded of the happiness she might have felt on the campus of her alternative choice probably added to the sadness. Depression is serious – it’s not a “get over it” type of thing, it is a disease of the mind and robs the soul of it’s freedom, beautiful people like this rarely come into the world (inside & out) and they need to be saved, and protected.. Madison, Rest in Peace, you are incredible you are amazing and you will be missed

I’ve been here and back,I know the imaginable thoughts of suicide and dark thoughts that come into the head and cloud every single thought of happiness,turns into hell. and those Hell thoughts begin to become reality still someone actually does it. I agree with this article, if you know anyone who’s suffering from such a thought talk to them
in most suicides,it says that most of people do it because there under stress or they don’t feel loved as if no one pays enough attention to them. Kinda like animals. Paying everyone attention is the most important. and telling them you “LOVE them” is the MOST important thin you could say. before their gone.
