A Suicide Loss: Please Help this Family who is now left Gathering Pieces of their Broken Family

I would like to take a moment and share a loss with you all. Suicide is 100% preventable. Colette leaves behind a daughter (with whom I now sympathize) and a grieving husband. They will have countless questions for years to come. Please help if your heart guides you to do so. Any amount is greatly appreciated.

Colette Hughes left this material plane and died suddenly at her own hand on Monday 7th July 2014 at 4.30pm. Colette was a gorgeous, wonderful and amazing human being she was; a pure expression of womanhood, funny, warmhearted and utterly adored by all who knew her. She was a true force of goodness, a brilliant teacher and role model.

She was also the most beautiful, sensual, graceful and charming Egyptian Dance performer of her generation. Check out her website:
